Holden has just released its first official teaser for the 2016 Commodore Series II, which will officially debut on September 13th, saying that the vehicle has been 37 years in the making and is a culmination of what makes a Commodore, a Commodore. The tagline accompanying the teaser image reads Hearing Is Believing — a fitting slogan, seeing that the design of the 2016 Commodore Series II will follow what the Series II nameplate stands for: evolution, rather than revolution.
The Commodore Series II will be historic in Australian automotive history. Not because of its performance, power, design, or the rumored LS9-powered HSV variants. Nay, the 2016 Commodore will stamp its place in history books because it will be the last Commodore manufactured in Australia. Ever.
Stay tuned for additional information as we approach the September 13th reveal date. But for now, remember this moment as our first look at Australia’s last homegrown Commodore.
