That's interesting, but I get it. The logic goes that most people really don't need any bed extension the midgate provides, the roll-down rear glass better suits the real purpose of the truck, open-air excursions offroad. Makes sense. The old H2 SUT actually had both, a folding midgate with the window dropping down into it. The window down made for an awesome experience at speed, air just whips through freely with zero buffeting, its such a fantastic experience you get in no other car this side of convertibles.I'd rather have the glass roll down than a midgate. For what the Hummer is designed to do it makes more sense.
For me personally, I'd love to have an H2 SUT-style midgate with the dropping window, but if it had to be midgate or window, I'd probably agree with Jim, because the cruising experience is just that good.
