Hummer H2

I would say because of the big LT, E rated tires (and the suspension, and the highly boosted steering required by the mass and the big tires) it does not have good road feel.

Interesting, given that the Hummer H2 is just a GM SUV with Hummer body styling. The rear of a front-engine truck is much less vulnerable to damage than the front, and the H2 usually has a pretty substantial rear bumper, so I guess the one in front wins.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

I love my Dodge Ram 2500 with the 5.9l cummins diesel. The Hemi Sucks (fuel that is) and it doesn't have low end torque like a diesel. I agree there is a big difference between 1500 half tons and 3/4 tons in terms of weight and agility on the road. If I did not need a pickup for general cargo hauling purposes I would be tempted to go with a smaller SUV instead. People have different needs and some vehicles are better at meeting them than others.
