    The sv6 is just like the SS styling wise, except its powered by holdens 262 horsepower 3.6 v6.

    This is the best you could hope for styling wise, for the SS/SV6.

    That's a shitty Motortrend chop. They pasted the G6's grille onto the car.

    The Commodore would look good with a grille more similar to the Vibe. Short in height, wide and more angular.

    I could probably draw it and make it look hot.

    No, Zeta. Aussie engineered for this car first, and GM is going to use it for a bunch of other products worldwide.

    I really think these cars are boring-looking.

    this is a bad sign.. this means the base v8 will probably be close to 30k, the hsv maybe 35+ :wtc:

    I also figured we'd likely get the SV6 Commodore considering it's replacing two of Pontiac's mainstream sedans here. The wider the range the more Pontiac can sell.

    The HSV news is a pleasant surprise. I'm sure Pontiac can at least move 200 of those a year if not more.

    Of course, a loaded G6 is $25k easy. You can always negotiate a lower price with the dealer.

    I was hopeful that I could get a loaded v8 for under 30k, but it's looking more and more improbable with the larger line:hs:

    It's possible, but you'll have to wait. I didn't pay anywhere near MSRP for my GTO.

    Lutz predicts the SS V8 model will go for roughly $25,000 US.

    The HSV will be close to VE GTS pricing. The SV6 could even very well be $21-22...

    The SV6 engine is quite nice too. The turbo version should be out sometime in 2007. With roughly 330 horsepower.

    The SS runs 13.4 stock in T-56 form, possibly could do better. Its no LS2, but its still one of GM's gen 4 engines, there is very little difference. Just 30kw of power (but the HSV's weigh more...).

    Put it like this, when these 6.0L L98 engines got introduced, they blew the previous ls1 powered commodores to bits, more low down torque, more top end.
