  1. Why do all of these hummers have Shitty V8's? Put a V12 in a car this size for shit's sake!

    WHAT KINDA OF #$%#IN IDIOT WOULD PUT A V12 IN A HUMMER? THE WAS GAS PRICES ARE GOING UP I WOULD ADVICES THEM 2 PUT A DAMN 4CYLINDER IN IT.

    Yeah a V12 would be stupid. Why add more cylinders when you sacn just have bigger cylinders. More parts means more part failures. Hummers have always had V8's with a s*** load of torque.
    And oh yeah, the mustang wasnt the original musle car. the GTO was, sorry kid...<!-- Signature -->

    the hummer H2 is supposed to be a cheaper SUV then normal....around 50 grand......and a vortec V8 can be more powerful than v-12's, depending on how well it was made and chit like that

    they're right.....a V8 is powerful enough for a hummer....it already gets bad enough gas milage as it is

    They should put a Merlin engine maxed out to 632ci in the Hummer, give it some grunt.

    First of all the army designed thisthis truck for the use in war! I realize that this is a car that any one can buy and that they took out the military insuturments... but all of the other specs are the same including what kind of block they use (V8). so y would they need the #$%#ing V12 a V8 is big enough and any ways if they put in a V12 the cost of the Hummer would be incredibly high.. as if it wernt right now!

    UGH!!!
    You people are such pathetic little losers!
    First of all, the army DIDN'T design this truck. It was designed by AM General to SUPPLY the army.
    Second of all, you're right. Why would you want a V12 in this vehicle? It's enough with all the power it has, why would you want more? A V12 Hummer won't reach blazing speeds...

    Hell... even the slogan says it all: "Sport Utility Vehicle? Define 'Sport'"... heh, Fun.

    Hummers are all about torque not top speed and acceleration
     
  12. Re: Why V8 in a car this big????

    More cylinder doesn't give more power...The Hummer is a car all about torque...so a V12 really isn't necessary
     
  13. BECAUSE U TOUCH URSELF AT NIGHT!
