Holden VF Commodore Calais V 1

More from Holden to round off a very packed time for it and the upcoming VF Commodore. The VF Calais V highlighted the glam, the VF SS V the sportier side of things and the US-bound Chevrolet SS provided the international take.

Now, to finish the job, there’s the VF Sportwagon and Ute, which will be part of the line-up when the VF Commodore makes its Australian market debut in mid-year. The VF Calais V Sportwagon showcar continues on the sophisticated theme, and the VF SSV Ute pairs it off with its brilliant orange sedan sibling.

All three body styles – sedan, Sportwagon and Ute – will go on sale at the same time. The VF is set to continue validation testing in the form of road-going trials until then, and by the time it arrives, it’ll have covered more than 1.4 million kilometres of evaluation.

Powertrains should continue on from that available for the VE, ranging from a 255 hp and 290 Nm 3.0 litre LF1 Spark Injection Direct Injection V6 right up to a 6.0 litre Generation IV V8, the L77.
