Autotrader Find: 2006 Hummer H2 Duramax Diesel Conversion

If you’ve followed along with the Hummer H2 through its history — first, a car admired by celebrities and athletes, then, a car hated by most everyone — you’re probably well aware that one major issue people have with the H2 is that it’s not dramatically more capable or more unique than a Chevrolet Tahoe or a GMC Yukon.

One of the complaints people have about the H2 is its powertrain: it was only offered with a gas V8, and acceleration was abysmal, given the huge size of the thing. Indeed, the H2 never carried on the H1’s tradition of offering a diesel engine — but this particular example changes that. This is a 2006 Hummer H2, and it’s been engine-swapped to offer GM’s trusty Duramax diesel engine — the same powertrain that made its way into the Hummer H1 for its final model year of 2006.

According to the ad, this H2 has also seen other major changes, including an updated gauge cluster to accommodate manual shifting, a night vision camera, bio-fuel capabilities, an upgraded audio system and more. Essentially, it seems like an H2 that’s been modernized and updated in some important ways — and it gives a lot more credibility to the H2 as a result.

This particular H2 is offered by Car Connection in Tucker, Georgia, near Atlanta, and it’s listed for just under $59,000 with 137,000 miles. Obviously, that’s big money for an H2 — but you won’t find many like this.
