    There is currently 2 model Commodore SS's sold here, the SS - the entry level v8 sports model, which would likely sell for roughly 22k USD when it hits the US, then the SS-V which is the luxury v8 sports model, which should be priced between 25-27k USD. Both come with 270kw (360 horsepower), 6.0L L98 v8's.

    Here is some photos...

    First the "SS". - Key differences from SS-V: different interior centre consoles, different wheels, different "non ricer" lights.

    ^ In this photo you see the VE infront of the outgoing model commodore, the VY, which the GTO is built off. The VE is completely new from the ground up.

    I love the non-studio photos.

    This car is replacing both the Grand Prix and Bonneville, so that will give everyone an idea what it will cost.

    Holden engineered this car with North American export in mind and to be a Pontiac. Hence the red interior lighting.

    Keep in mind Holden's colour is red too, so the red lighting works for them.

    I'd love to see the HSV models and the future Utes and the Crewmans get exported to the Middle East...

    STFU...

    [​IMG]

    They do a 4WD version too...

    Corvette based motor
    6 speed transmission
    4 doors
    4 full seats
    4 wheel drive
    raised suspension
    truck bed
    car body

    It's like going to the buffet and piling your plate up with a little bit of everything.
