Its clear now that the Holden VE Ute and wagon are coming. The life cycle of the current model ute is about to end and to help maintain sales before the new model rocks up, Holden have come out with a Special Edition Commodore SVZ Ute And Wagon.
Available now, the 2007 Commodore SVZ Ute offers a six-speed manual transmission from $29,990 and a five-speed automatic from $30,990. Powered by the same engine found in the VE series, the Alloytec V6 engine which produces peak power of 190kW at 6500rpm (automatic transmission) and peak power of 187kW at 6000rpm (manual transmission) and 335Nm of peak torque at 3200rpm.
As well as the ute, the Commodore SVZ Wagon is priced from $32,490 and powered by the 172kW 3.6-litre Alloytec V6 engine with four-speed automatic transmission. Which is a shame, given that the industry is talking about eight-speed automatics.
Holden says both offers are limited to private buyers only – so fleet buyers beware.
