The Hummer H2 SUT -- for sport-utility truck -- concept is introduced in New York's Times Square on April 10, 2001.
Behind the wheel was Arnold Schwarzenegger, an unofficial consultant during development of the truck, and alongside the Terminator star was New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani.
The Hummer H2 SUV went into production in early 2002 at a new plant in Indiana.
Unlike the original Hummer, rechristened the H1, the H2 SUV combined tactical toughness with luxury features, and added some practicality. Though smaller than the original, the H2 carried two more passengers. It had heated seats.
The H2 SUT featured a folding midgate similar to a feature on the Chevrolet Avalanche and Cadillac Escalade EXT. With the midgate down, the H2 SUT was a cargo-hauling pickup. With it up, it was a people-moving SUV. The plastic cargo bed measured 47.3 inches between the wheel wells, 34.7 inches from front to back, and 20 inches deep. By big pickup standards, it was tiny.
