2018 Holden Commodore VXR

2018 Holden Commodore VXR 1The next-gen Commodore VXR offers a different execution of performance to the outgoing SS but make no mistake, this is a more than worthy successor,” said Holden’s lead dynamics engineer, Rob Trubiani.

Three drive modes allow the driver to adjust steering, transmission, AWD and CDC settings, with Holden lead dynamics engineer Rob Trubiani saying they create “distinctly different driving experiences”.

“The next-gen Commodore VXR offers a different execution of performance to the outgoing SS but make no mistake, this is a more than worthy successor,” Trubiani said. “We’ve been involved in the development of this car from the beginning and I personally have spent significant time behind the wheel overseas and at Holden’s Lang Lang proving ground.”

Poppitt also teased V8 Holden fans with another reference to Holden’s mooted “two-door sports car”, hinting it will fill the void left by the Commodore SS if the VXR doesn’t. The ‘Holden sports car’ was first cryptically announced by GM International boss Stefan Jacoby at the 2015 Detroit motor show but since then the brand has refused to reveal any further details, but speculation suggests it will be either the Chevrolet Camaro or Corvette; or potentially both will come down under in future generations.
