The heart of the H2 is a 6.2L V-8 engine that uses variable valve timing technology to maximize performance and fuel efficiency. It is rated at 393 horsepower and 415 lb.-ft. of torque. The engine also features lightweight materials, including an aluminum cylinder block, which helps reduce the vehicle’s overall mass.
The 6.2L V-8’s technologically advanced features also help it meet new federal emissions standards a year before mandatory implementation.
A six-speed Hydra-Matic 6L80 RWD electronically controlled automatic transmission backs the 6.2L engine. The six-speed automatic has a wide, 6.04:1 overall ratio – including two overdrive gears – that helps deliver an excellent balance of performance and fuel economy. Also, the 6L80 has a “tap up/tap down” capability that allows the driver to manually select upshifts and downshifts with a button on the column shifter.
