2018 Holden Commodore VXR specs revealed

Top-spec Commodore details

Those Holden fans who love a sports-tuned Commodore will be well catered for with the 2018 Holden Commodore VXR.

That’s the message from Holden today as it released specification details for the range-topping model.

And, despite the car being an imported vehicle, Holden say it will benefit from almost 40 years of continuous local Commodore development.

2018 Holden Commodore VXR Key Data:

  • Powered by a 235kW/381Nm 3.6 litre V6 engine
  • Nine-speed auto transmission
  • Adaptive all-wheel drive with torque vectoring technology
  • Twin-clutch rear differential
  • Brembo front brakes
  • Sports-tuned suspension with Continuous Damping Control
  • 20” alloy wheels
  • Larger rear spoiler
  • Front and rear sports fascias

While Holden has also confirmed the model will boast adaptive LED Matrix headlights, head-up display, as well as heated and ventilated leather front seats.

Take a closer look at the new Commodore undergoing local testing…

Lead Dynamics Engineer at Holden, Rob Trubiani, tells us the 2018 Holden Commodore VXR is a worthy successor to the SS when it arrives early in 2018.

“The V6 engine with the adaptive AWD and 9-speed transmission make the Commodore VXR a quick and smooth car to drive, even in wet conditions.

“We can’t wait to get the car in the hands of our customers next year.”

While safety will be well catered for in the new Holden Commodore, the fully-imported is expected to land locally next year with a maximum five-star ANCAP safety rating.
