Hot laps at Bathurst in a Holden Commodore VFII SS-V Redline

Growing up in a small town in regional Queensland, the V8 Supercars Championship Series was the catalyst for heated debate among friends over drinks. This debate sparked family feuds that lasted decades and was even rumoured to have ruined marriages. Did your blood run red or blue? A side had to be chosen and God-forbid you changed your mind or sat on the fence...

2016 Holden VFII Commodore - bimodal exhaust sound-off

Read the article here. One of the key selling points of the new Holden Commodore VF-Series II is the bimodal exhaust fitted to LS3-powered SS models. A V8 engine is nothing new for the SS, but does the new exhaust make much of a difference? We put a VF-Series I car up against a VF-Series II so you can hear the difference  ...

January 26 is one of our great nation's most contentious days of the year – Australia Day. Now being the simple folk we are at CarAdvice, we'll leave debate about this country's origins to others, and instead focus on enjoying this big island we all live on. Plus, we can use the day as an excuse to have some fun in cars...

Ford Falcon XR8 v Holden Commodore SS : Comparison review

History dictates that (power) wars don’t end in draws. When the Ford Falcon XR8 arrived in 1992 it made an identical 165kW of power to the Holden Commodore SS and with 388Nm of torque listed a crucial 3Nm ahead. From either side of the trenches the two 5.0-litre engines threw grenades until Holden used Yank weaponry in 1999 with the 220kW 5...

Ford Falcon v Holden Commodore Evoke : Comparison review

Once upon a time, if you worked for a big company that gave you a fleet car, chances are it was one of this pair’s ancestors.

2018 Holden Commodore: Fresh clues about future large car

1983 Holden Commodore SL/e Review

This is a car for an enthusiast. A lover of anything with presence. And, someone with the desire to frequent the servo, regularly. The interior of this vehicle would rival the opulence usually associated with a sheiks luxurious jaunt through the desert on a clear Arabian night. The velour seats are soft (much like a lounge suite), don't really offer much support and become incredibly hot when driving in summer...

2005 Holden Commodore Review

Hi all!! My name is Dylon Folley and today I am reviewing my 2005 VZ SV6 Holden Commodore.

For me the 05' VZ SV6 ticked all the boxes for me...

1998 Holden Commodore Review

The 1998 VT Commodore was essentially the love child of the Australian automotive industry, on release it won the illustrious Wheels Car of the Year in 1997 and easily outsold the ugly and unloved AU Falcon. The styling appealed to the average punter and the engine choices ranged from a 3.8L V6 through to a 5.7L V8. The 3...

2009 Holden Commodore Review

2009 was an interesting year. The world was in the midst of a global financial crisis, people weren't sure if they were going to keep their jobs and Greece wasn't in the headlines every 6.8 seconds as it is now. It was also the year in which my Holden SV6 Commodore was born – 26 June, 2009 to be exact. I've had it for 5 years now, bought it with 41,000km on the clock...
