Holden revealed for the first time the new Commodore VF, during an exclusive event in Melbourne. The carmaker itself announced the fact that it will replace this model with a new one in 2017 and so this might be the last Australian-designed and engineered rear-wheel drive model. The good news is that the replacement of the Commodore will keep the same name with production continuing to take place in Australia. The bad news is that it will switch to a front-wheel drive platform. Anyway, until things start changing, the Commodore offers a new design both inside and out and also new luxury appointments. The new Holden Commodore VF spearheads a new export campaign in form of the Chevrolet SS Sports Sedan that will be revealed for the first time in the USA next week on the 16th of February. This is very good from a North American perspective. The modifications are expected to be very subtle. According to an official, there is no other car developed in the Land Down Under as technologically advanced. The model will be exported to Chevrolet, the biggest global brand of General Motors.
The Holden Commodore VF features lightweight aluminum panels along with other fuel saving features such as electric power steering and better aerodynamics. These will help reduce fuel consumption as much as 10% in comparison to the previous VE Commodore.
Nothing is for sure, but the model might be powered by a V6 or V8 engine. In terms of technology, the model will receive an Auto Park Assist system as standard, which enable the driver to operate the pedals, but the car parks itself. There will also be the latest MyLink infotainment system and keyless entry and start, for the lazy ones. In terms of safety, the new car comes with a Reverse Traffic Alert System, Blind Spot Alert, Forward Collision alert, Head-Up Display and Lane Departure Warning. The carmaker also plans to introduce a replacement fro the station wagon.
