With the winter months fast approaching, it’s time to start pulling out the heavy coats and warm clothing. Snow will soon be falling on the regular, which means a return of those cold mornings shoveling snow to get the car out – unless, of course, you drive a Hummer, as seen in the following short video.
Clocking in at a little over a minute in length, this video (hat tip to Hummer Nation) opens with a city street lined with cars and packed with knee-deep snow. The plow hasn’t cleared anything yet, which means those commuter cars aren’t going anywhere.
Suddenly, a yellow Hummer H2 comes charging up the street, pushing a huge berm of snow in front of it.
“This guy has actually come up almost two blocks,” says the bewildered onlooker shooting the video.
Even though the snow has piled up to the grille of the yellow Hummer, the driver keeps pushing forward, working the engine and tires to shove the white stuff aside.
“Can’t decide if this guy is trying to have fun or do a good deed?” the woman shooting the video wonders.
After backing up and getting some extra momentum, the Hummer hits the snow berm with gusto and plows right through it. One amazed onlooker exclaims “oh my god! Look at that!” as the Hummer charges through.
“I bet he paid $100 in gas!” jokes the woman shooting the video.
Regardless of how much it cost to tank up, the capability of the H2 is clear here. On snowy days when most other vehicles are stuck, the driver in this Hummer simply makes a path and charges through it. Impressive stuff.
Of course, seeing this display of torque and traction makes us think about the all-new 2022 GMC Hummer EV, which swaps the internal combustion powerplant in favor of electric muscle and up to 1,000 horsepower. When the new Hummer finally arrives later next year, we definitely expect to see it conquer equally, if not more challenging conditions.
