True to its go-anywhere Hummer heritage, the H2 starts to excel where roads end and trails begin. Famed off-road challenges with names like Devil's Revenge, Poison Spider, and Porcupine are a breeze for this joint effort by General Motors (hardware) and AM General (manufacturing), which goes on sale this summer. Gifted with exceptionally short overhangs, an expertly tuned chassis, and a solid drivetrain, the military Humvee's civilian little brother can do stunts off the beaten track that no other truck of similar weight and size can. Despite certain flaws, the H2's on-road performance is more impressive than its appalling aerodynamics (a bricklike drag coefficient of 0.57) and the considerable 6400-pound curb weight suggest.
