Unfortunately, this is not a perfect world. The Holden VF Commodore Series II will soon exit production as the final rear-wheel drive, V8-powered sedan from the brand and its replacement will be sourced from Opel.
It’s all but confirmed the 2018 Holden Commodore will switch to a front-wheel drive layout with a twin-turbo V6 offering solace for V8 performance buyers. But, what if this was a perfect world? Let’s explore that for a moment.
Our dreams become a digital reality thanks to RM Design. After mumblings of the Buick Avista show car nearly reaching a green light for production in four-door coupe form, we felt this design could translate into a new generation of Commodore with a repositioned strategy.
Feast your eyes on a reimagined 2018 Holden Commodore with a little help from the stunning Buick Avista concept. The brand has been adamant in stating it no longer wants to just be known as “The Commodore Company”, but instead also play into the crossover and SUV boom that has unfolded the past few years.
Therefore, this 2018 Commodore allows CUVs to take center stage while design and form take on a more niche role for the iconic nameplate. Our 2018 Commodore supports a 3.0-liter LGW twin-turbocharged V6 engine, but also fits a 6.2-liter LT1 V8 engine under the hood, too. Because this is a Commodore after all.
With room for four, it carries the Commodore’s spirit of blending practicality, roominess, luxury and sporting cues in a modern package. It’s the Commodore only we could dream of.
