The Holden VF Sportwagon and Ute pickup model line is supplemented with the new VF Commodore sedan that was presented in the beginning of February of this year. The production of these interesting model lines is planning to begin in summer of 2013. Australian auto manufacturers also stated that all three series will become available at the same time.
So while we wait for these Australian gorgeous cars to become available at our nearest dealer’s salons, we might as well look at their technical characteristics and features. The new Commodore series is at the stage of late development and it still needs to take some initial tests before the model goes to pre-production stage. The new Commodore pickup will be similar to its brothers, that means that among the other things it’s going to be equipped with V8 engine.
Despite the fact that Commodore with VF index is not built from the scratch but represents a completely redesigned and remodeled predecessor’s version with the VE index, Australian manufacturers made it absolutely clear that this vehicle is better in every way possible and that the driver’s experience, comfort, reliability and dynamics are moved to the entire new level.
While working on this series the best engineers and designers collected thousands of feedbacks and wishes from the ordinary people and tried to implement all of them into the new Commodore concept.
It won’t be a big surprise when this car becomes a bestseller in Australia and maybe in the international market as well, but there’s plenty of time for that to change.
The prospects of the pickup and wagon versions of the Australian Commodore series to be reshaped as the Chevrolet’s “golden butterfly” are really distant. But that doesn’t mean that it’s not possible. A couple of days ago General Motors showed their Commodore’s twin – the four-door SS model with a powerful V8 engine under its hood. The Chevrolet wagon with the same power characteristics would be a great feature of the Chevrolet’s 2013 model line.
