Missing the Evoke badge introduced on the sedan, and ditching the Omega badge previously used, the now-unnamed base Holden VF Commodore Ute also opens with a 3.6-litre SIDI V6 engine instead of the 3.0-litre V6 used in the Evoke sedan and old Omega, while LPG is no longer available on any of the two-door range.

The price drops $2500 compared with the old Omega Ute, while the new entry-level Ute also adds front and rear parking sensors, auto park technology, a rear-view camera and an eight-inch colour touchscreen with iPod and app integration.

For the same price as the six-speed automatic-only Ute, buyers can choose the SV6 manual with the same 3.6-litre engine. The SV6 gets a heftier $5500 price decrease compared with the old model. Over the base Ute, the SV6 adds blind spot alert, reverse traffic alert, sports seats, FE2 sports suspension, 18-inch alloy wheels with chrome exhaust tip, limited slip differential for manual models, sports bodykit with projector headlights, soft tonneau cover and LED daytime running lights.

A six-speed automatic adds $2200 to all models except the base Ute, which has the auto shifter standard.
