Holden Commodore VZ

Updated on March 17, 2011

The Holden VZE Commodore was a full-size car that came as a 2-door ute, a 4-door sedan or a 5-door hatchback. There were also variants by Holden's performance arm, Holden Special Vehicles (HSV) which went under an HSV badge.  It was produced by Holden, a General Motors subsidiary, between August 2004 and September 2007. The Holden VZ Commodore was the thirteenth model of the Holden Commodore range, it superceded the VY series and has itself been superceded by the VE series.

The VZ had a 175 and 190 kilowatt (kW) 3.6 litre Alloytec V6 engine which had replaced the VY's older 3.8 litre ECOTEC V6 engine. The sports and luxurt versions also had a new 5L40-E 5-speed automatic transmission. There was also a 260 kW 6.0 litre V8 version of the VZ.

There were several standard variations of the mode. The Executive, Acclaim, Berlina, Calais, SV6, SV8 & SS were all available as sedans, whilst the Executive, Acclaim & Berlina were all available as wagons.
