Holden Special Vehicles GEN-F

At the beginning of this year, US customers had the opportunity to meet the 2014 Chevrolet SS. This is actually a redesigned version of the 2014 Holden Commodore VF Series which has been followed up with the release of the Holden Special Vehicles also known as the GEN-F range. This is one of the most significant exterior styling makeover since the E-Series. The engineers have offered in the end, the most powerful performance production car built in Australia ever. This country is recognized for its strong cars like the GTS capable of generating 577 horsepower. This is not all. The carmaker is seriously considering replacing it with a front wheel drive for the next Commodore scheduled for 2017.



Now, moving on to the GEN-F range, we have to say that it includes sedan and station wagon models that have as base the Commodore and also have a long-wheelbase version on the Caprice called the Grange. The GTS sedan receives power from a 6.2-liter supercharged LSA V8 engine capable of generating 577 horsepower, like we have mentioned before and 740 Nm of torque. Right at the bottom of the range we will find the Clubsport sedan and the SportWagon, but also the Maloo Ute powered by a 6.2-liter V8 unit capable of producing 425 horsepower and 550 Nm of torque. Next we have the Clubsport R8, Tourer and Maloo R8 which are powered by a stronger 6.2-liter V8 unit capable of generating 436 horsepower and 550 nm of torque. The Grange receives power from a 6.2-liter V8 unit capable of developing 456 horsepower and 570 Nm of torque. To transfer the output to the road, the engineers have offered 6-speed transmissions and an optional 6-speed automatic one driving the rear wheels.
