Was wondering what the go fasters were going to do with the demise of the Commodore.

Mad Max is alive and well.


Cannot see signatures any longer so it doesn’t matter.

If it does materialise it won't be a hit. The market for large petrol utes is pretty much nil judging by how many are available in this class and the last similar vehicle I can remember (TRD hilux) didn't sell very well. Too thirsty, not torquey enough for grunt work and not macho enough for overcompensating """""""""""""men""""""""""""" who buy them but never use them for their intended purpose.

The Colorados wereoutselling the Commondore.

Families were still buying SS Commondore wagons and sedans, which they can no longer get.

These will be a hit.

Not enough...torque? Ummm Twin turbo V6s start at like 500nM torque peak with a fat diesel-like curve even down to 1000-1200 revs, for a small one, and they go up from there. What grunt work are you referring to? Pulling a house off its foundation?

Same...the cars will be Euro FWD, and the race cars turbo V-6 and RWD.



But the Utes are going to go to the biggest market sector in the country, the dual cab 4WDs, like my Colorado.
