The era of the original rear-drive Holden Commodore is coming to an end.

The Holden Commodores will be discontinued after the latest model that is soon to arrive. Where the model is not going to totally disappear from the market, it surely will lose its originality, starting from the next generation model which is due to come.

The new and next generation model will share its platform with the next-generation Opel Insignia. This platform is supposed to be nothing like that of its predecessor.

The new Commodore will be available for sale in the start of year 2018. It is going to be the first Commodore which will be imported to Australia and will be available for Australian customers. 

This news has arrived from Holden which actually released a few pictures of a perfectly camouflaged 2018 Commodore. The car is engineered and built for most of the part in Germany alongside Insignia.

Holden says that they will be monitoring the development of this new Commodore in order to ensure that it remains true to its roots. 

The new range of Holden Commodores is supposed to have four wheel drive and 2.0 liter turbocharged four cylinder engines. These engines will be available in diesel and petrol engines both.

These will arrive in hatchback, wagon and a sedan version of the cars. The highest model in the fleet will have a V6 engine offering an output of 308bhp, according to AutoBlog.

The V6 engine will also accompany a 9 speed automatic and torque vectoring all-wheel drive system. It is also said that it will use the same kind of GKN rear end that is available in Land Rover Range Rover Evoque and Ford RS. However this news was not confirmed by Holden.
