It’s not a shocker, but the market is already beginning to dictate resale values for the final bunch of locally-produced Holden Commodores. According to CarsGuide, resale values are already performing much better than in the past, due to many factors.
The next Holden Commodore will not be made in Australia, and Holden’s manufacturing arm will be shuttered definitely, making these final VF Commodores, especially the 2016 VF Commodore Series II, star performers on the resale side of things.
“Commodore V8 models are all expected to perform better than they have in the past as they exit the market. The same can be said for Falcon XR8 and XR6 Turbo models,” Glass’s Santo Amoddio said.
“The resale of the vehicles is improving significantly and this trend is expected to continue once they are discontinued.”
Even though the V8-powered models will be the strongest performers over time, V6 equipped cars are also projected to hold steady over the next five years and beyond, too.
“Other models of Commodore and Falcon are not expected to perform as strongly. However there will be additional demand for these cars as they will have some appeal to enthusiasts.”
