Australian Holden Commodore cars

General Motors Holden is an automotive manufacturer operating in Australia. The company was founded in 1856, by James Alexander Holden and it became a subsidiary of the General Motors automotive group in 1931. The company started to produce complete motorcycle sidecare bodies in 1913. However, the first Commodore automobile was conceived and delivered only starting in 1978. The name – „Commodore” was adopted from Opel (which has been using the name since 1967), because the first model was based on one of the Opel body shells.

Commodore is the most popular car produced by Holden Company. Since 1978 until present, there were produced four generations of Commodore vehicles.

The first generation covers a ten years period, between 1978 and 1988.

Holden VB Commodore was launched in 1978. This model was based on Opel Rekord E body shell but with the front of the Opel Senator model and used GM’s rear-wheel drive V-body platform. It was equipped with a large six-cylinder V8 engine. However, it was less fuel-consuming than its predecessor, HZ Kingswood. The VB model was awarded the “Wheels Car of the Year” in the same year when its production has just started. Its successor was the VC automobile, produced between 1980 and 1981. Released in March 1980, its most significantly improvements consisted in its upgraded engine of twelve-port cylinder head coming together with a new two-barrel carburetor, a Bosch electronic ignition system, combustion chambers and inlet and exhaust manifolds.

Between 1981 and 1984 the VH model reached the market. When it was first released, in September 1981, it brought an updated frontal bodyface, in order to achieve a longer, yet wider look. Modifications were made for the rear part too. Sedan cars featured redesigned tail light clusters. VH model was equipped with different engines: one 1.9 liter four-cylinder and one 2.85 liter six-cylinder. In September 1982, Holden released the sports-oriented Commodore SS sedan. This model was equipped with large engines of 4.2 liter V8 or even 5.0 liter V8, while they used a four-speed manual transmission.

The VK model came in 1984 and it was produced until the end of 1986. VK cars adopted a six-window glasshouse, in order to appear larger than their predecessors with only four-window designs. New types were released to the market: the Commodore Executive – a superseded design with automatic transmission and air conditioning, Commodore Berlina – replacing its mix-range designs, and Calais – replacing the previously produced top-of-the-line variants. All this new types were equipped with the 3.3 liter six-cylinder 142 hp engine or its larger alternative of 5.0 liter V8 engine.

The last vehicle model of the first generation was the VL, produced between 1986 and 1988. With a substantial makeover of the VK model, VL Commodore has been sold in record numbers. Its most powerful engine developed 200 horsepower.

Starting with 1988, the second generation of Commodore has been launched.

Its first model was produced between 1988 and 1991. VN Commodore took the bodywork from the larger Opel Senator B and Opel Omega A. The second model, VP reached the market in 1991 and came with significant improvements concerning the engines. In 1992, the Anti-lock braking system was introduced as an option on the Calais vehicle. In 1993 was released the VR model which brought a major facelift of the second generation architecture – almost 80% of the car was re-designed. A new safety feature – the independent rear suspension, was introduced only for the electronic GM 4L60E automatic transmission. Further, the VS model was released in 1995 with an Ecotec engine of 197 horsepower. This was the last model of the Commodore’ second generation.

The third generation of Commodore cars was launched starting with 1997. The VT model was produced until 2000 and was, once again, based on one of the Opel’s body shells. VX Commodore was produced between 2000 and 2002. Its rear tail lamp panel was replaced by two separate light assemblies, while using a full-width boot-lid panel incorporating the registration plate and tail lamps. VY model reached the market in 2002 with a new curvaceous dashboard design and a satin chrome plastic façade of the center console stack. The last model of the third generation was VZ, launched in 2004. It brought a new series of 3.6 liter V6 engines, Alloytec V6, developing 235 hp or 250 hp.

The fourth Commodore generation started in 2006 and its models are produced nowadays too. The Holden VE Commodore was entirely designed in Australia and the budget allocated to the car’s development exceeded $1 billion.

The 4th generation Holden Commodore comes in three different shapes and sizes: the comfortable Berlina, the sporty SSV Z-Series and the luxury V-Series. The latest model, Calais V comes with a stylish design and dynamic lines. It is equipped with a chrome quad exhaust, which increases its performances. The front frog lights and projector headlamps come in a new exquisite design, significantly improving the car’s overall image.

Concerning its interior design, the latest Commodore model benefit of the Holden-iQ system; this mechanism allow its passengers to access the CD collection, their iPhones or iPods and the navigation system, all through a single LCD screen user interface. It is also equipped with a high performance Audio system. In order to facilitate the car’s parking, the Park Assist mechanism and a Rear View Camera were both introduced.

Holden Commodore newest model has received a five-star rating regarding its safety systems. Its overall safety and stability have been increased through the Electronic Stability Control, the Anti-locked Braking System and the Brake Assist mechanism. In addition, for a maximum protection, the car has been equipped with 6 airbags (two frontal, two side impact and two side curtain airbags).

Related to its sporty part, Holden Commodore will reveal this year the new Future Race Car. The new sporty-version Commodore will be powered by a 5.0 liter V8 engine which is able to develop 600 horsepower and it is expected to make a successful run at the V8 Supercar Series this year.

Through its innovations, designs and performances, Holden Commodore reached the performance of being Australia’s favorite car for 15 consecutive years, occupying the top-selling on this large market.
