Holden has officially pulled the wraps off the 2016 Commodore VFII.

The last Australian-built Commodore is also the fastest and most powerful one ever made and it has been called the Commodore VFII. The model in question is bringing revised styling tweaks for the front fascia and rear end, except for the Evoke trim level which has remained unchanged and the LPG variant which has been discontinued. The rest of the lineup is adding new front and rear bumpers, clear taillights, a new look for the grille, new LED taillights on the Sportwagon and 18-inch wheels.

The Holden Commodore VFII Evoke has a 3.0 liter V6 engine under its hood, with 250 HP (185 kW) and 290 Nm (214 lb-ft) of torque. The SV6 version is bringing a 3.6 liter V6, producing 285 HP (210 kW) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque. The SS variant has an LS3 6.2 liter V8 engine, with 410 HP (304 kW) and 570 Nm (421 lb-ft) of torque, enough for a 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration made in 4.9 seconds. This is connected in standard to the 6-speed manual transmission but for an extra 2,200 AUD, customers will get the 6-speed auto on the Sportwagon. The suspension system has been revised and the vehicle is said to have improved handling and comfort. The range-topping model, the SSV Redline, is bringing standard rear Brembo brakes along with the optional 20-inch wheels. You can check out the Commodore VFII in the photo gallery posted below.
