Holden revealed the 2016 VF Commodore Series II after much anticipation as to what would be in store for the last locally-engineered and manufactured Commodore.
What’s definitely hot about the 2016 Commodore Series II? The addition of the LS3 6.2-liter V8.
The 2016 VF Series Series II was expected to receive an L99-variant of LS3 with Active Fuel Management, but Holden engineers know this final-Aussie Commodore means so much more to consumers.
Besides the latest powerplant, the 2016 Commodore Series II receives updated looks in the front, and subtle touches in the rear. Sculpted air ducts in the front force air into the wheel arches for enhanced aerodynamics, and give the car its most different stylistic appearance. Additionally, functional hood vents are now present, as well as new LED lighting to replace the old foglights. A nice touch is the addition of an LS3 badge on the revised lower fascia, signifying the engine.
Out back, things are much the same minus the new, clear lenses for the taillights, which look to be a great contrast on the decidedly fluid lines in the rear. New VF Series II badging is present, as well as quad tips to be paired with the new bi-modal exhaust.
We weren’t expecting anything revolutionary in the styling department, but we think it’s a tasteful refresh of the VF Commodore. But, it’s your turn to say something. How are you liking the new looks? Is it too little, or just enough for the Commodore to stay relevant?
Regardless, Holden shouldn’t have any issue moving LS3-powered Commodore due to the car’s significance.
