The first look of the Opel Insignia was unveiled sometime back. Now, Australia is all set to get its very own version of the Opel Insignia. It is the 2018 Holden Commodore. It’s the first time in the history of Commodore that a car won’t be built in Australia. Instead, it will be a relaunched version of an international General Motors model. But that fact isn’t much to worry about. This is because the car promises to start from the point VFII generation model ended. The Holden Commodore also boasts of some latest exciting powertrains and technologies.
The most significant addition to the 2018 Holden Commodore is the 2.0 liter four-cylinder diesel and petrol engines. The four cylindered engines is a replacement for the present six cylindered entry level engine. There are no details about the particular power outcomes of the 2.0 liter powertrains. But experts think the engine will be clubbed with a 9 automatic speed transmission power for the front wheels. The downsizing trend will extend to the 2018 Holden Commodore also.
The car is packed with V6 3.6 litre engine that churns out 230 kW and 370 Nm of torque. The car also boasts of an all wheel drive structure. The car enthusiasts might mourn the letting go of the V8. But the car’s E2 global architecture from GM has done wonders with its weight. The Commodore will weigh between 200kg to 300 kg which is lighter than the existing model. The 2018 Holden Commodore will pack in matrix LED headlights; massage front and back seats, folding rear seats etc.
