Holden VE II Commodore SV6

VE and WM Serial II marks the modish versions of Australia’s almost democratic sedans, wagons, utilities and luxuriousness long-wheelbase vehicles. The new stove has seen Holden delicacy the recipe that has made Commodore the state’s top merchandising car for 14 age square by introducing impertinent multimedia engineering, improved fire thriftiness, and the capability to run on environmentally favorable bio-ethanol.

VE Serial II brings more multimedia features to Commodore than always earlier done an allnew documentary organisation that delivers wax Bluetooth®, USB and iPod consolidation crossways the scope.

Known as Holden-iQ, the scheme is controlled done a apt, user-friendly touchscreen mounted in the essence smokestack – the fundament of a fresh midland conception crosswise all models.

Introducing increased plug-and-play medicine functions and the capacitance to rip and depot capable 15 CDs on an national flashbulb cause, the arrangement likewise delivers advance orbiter piloting features on selected models including subsist dealings circumstance alerts to helper drivers forfend over-crowding delays.

Commodore’s impertinent engineering extends to the Serial II powertrain line-up which delivers advance fire thriftiness improvements on all models.

Holden’s stinting 3.0 liter SIDI V6 now achieves saving of 9.1 litres of fire per 100 kilometres in the functionary ADR81/02 trial. The two per penny advance adds to the 13 per penny fire thriftiness win made in September close class when Discharge Kindling Engineer Shot locomotive engineering was introduced to the Commodore orbit.

The 3.6 liter SIDI V6 secondhand to superpower agiotage Commodore models makes intermediate fire saving gains of more tercet per centime by spell all sumptuosity and execution models powered by Holden’s Gen IV V8 meliorate on intermediate by more six per centime.

In a major footstep towards creating a cleanser Australian fire landscape, Serial II customers bequeath likewise be able-bodied to run their cars on bio-ethanol, known in many markets as E85; a commingle of capable 85 per centime ethanol and 15 per centime gasolene.

Bio-ethanol is a renewable fire that can be made from a reach of thriftlessness products from the product of straw and dinero and evening family drivel. In Australia now use of the fire reduces lifecycle CO2 emissions by capable 40 per centime when compared to gas.

A kickoff for an Australian-made car, Serial II models powered by the 3.0 liter SIDI V6 and 6.0 l V8 engines testament deliver flex-fuel potentiality, allowing them to run on Bio-ethanol, E10, Leadless, Agiotage or any combining in betwixt.

Long Wheelbase

For long-wheelbase sumptuosity vehicles, Serial II testament see Holden fling buyers two well-specified versions of the flagship Whim modeling.

The debut of an updated WM Serial II scope in September leave score the unveiling of the Holden Impulse V-Series.

The sports opulence V-Series appellative matches that of early agio Holdens and identifies this framework as top-of-the-range.

Complementary the line-up is the Whim Serial II, which shares the stretched silhouette, 18-inch admixture wheels and firm invention persona of its similitude.

With this relocation, Holden discontinues its long-running Solon nameplate.

    Modifications included flowing improvements, which frown fire phthisis by reduction the fomite’s hale co-efficient, and mechanical changes. Z and Berlina models were besides fitted with depress peal opposition tyres.

    Streamlined improvements admit:

  • Add-on of panels nether the fomite flooring to slenderize airflow draw (saloon and Sportwagon, excluding Z)
  • Decreased shave altitude on Z and Berlina saloon

    Flex-Fuel EngineTechnology

    In an Australian commencement, all Serial II models powered by Holden’s 3.0 L SIDI V6 and 6.0 L V8 engines volition deliver flex-fuel potentiality, allowing them to run on bio-ethanol, E10, Leadless, Agio or any compounding in ‘tween.

    Bio-ethanol is a cleaner-burning get-up-and-go origin comprising ethanol and gasoline. Bio-ethanol importantly reduces CO2 emissions and enhances fomite execution.

    In Australia, bio-ethanol is presently produced from rot streams created by the industrial product of straw and boodle. None of these resources would differently be put-upon for nutrient product.

    To ascertain handiness of the fire for Serial II vehicles, Holden has entered an alinement with Australia’s starring fire retailer, Caltex which has attached to merchandising the fire below the Bio EFlex marque.

    Caltex testament birth Bio E-Flex uncommitted in 31 help stations in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide and Canberra by the end of October, increasing to 100 metropolitan and regional locations in 2011.

    Holden is besides investigation the viability of establishing Australia’s offset second-generation ethanol implant, as contribution of a pool including the Prissy Politics, Caltex, Veolia, Mitsui and Coskata.

    The embed could be able of turn materials such as menage trash and construction dissipation into more 200 billion litres of ethanol a yr.

    Holden’s leading in substitute fuels in Australia is role of GM’s globular sustainability and vigor variety scheme. In the US, GM is the prima manufacturer of flex-fuel vehicles with more 3.5 1000000 E85-capable GM cars on the route.

    Although fire ingestion of bio-ethanol nonparallel II models bequeath be higher because ethanol contains less vim than gas, bio-ethanol’s higher octane evaluation agency wagerer fomite functioning. As an instance, Holden V8 Supercars made the successful alternate to E85 in 2009.

    For Serial Holden engineers suffer introduced a figure ironware changes to the companionship’s 3.0-litre SIDI V6 and 6.0-litre Gen IV V8 engines to piddle them flex-fuel able.

    Foremost due to lubrication differences victimisation bio-ethanol, stand locomotive ironware has been changed to admit treated ingestion, expel and arse valves.

    A new fire heart whole made of dissimilar materials to sour with bio-ethanol has likewise been installed on with a flex-fuel detector to observe the inebriant story in the fire occupation and cater entropy to the locomotive mastery whole (ECU).The spying takes berth aft every replenish and too endlessly during drive.

    Divagation from ironware changes, important standardisation oeuvre has likewise been undertaken to fulfil Holden’s flex-fuel inevitably.


    The multi-award-winning VE Commodore made a potent and striking pattern affirmation, characterised by its graeco-roman bum pedal campaign proportions and an gymnastic position emphatic by salient bicycle arches.

    For VE Serial II, designers briefed to review the outside birth executed a serial of pernicious changes, including new movement dashboard, lattice and headlight treatments crosswise the scope.

    Berlina stipulation and supra sport new debase wheels and the speed decklids of the saloon models are enhanced with merged aero lip particularization.

    On the national, Holden has continued its style of creating unequaled personalities for apiece example. Mainstream, prestigiousness and sports models all welcome new center flock features, mouldings, ornament and elucidation colors.

    Inside invention ferment has focussed on gamy standards of sensed caliber, and creating a more ‘cowcatcher orientated’ cabin integration new features and accessories.

    Pronto unmistakable is a higher-mounted, more salient locating of the Holden-iQ arrangement expose covert, controls and air vents.
