We knew it was coming and 2017 has arrived, the year that sees the death of vehicle manufacturing in Australia. If you want to secure one of the last Commodore’s made in Australia, then you’ll be glad to know their now available.

The 2017 Holden Commodore is expected to see high demands, so best to get in quick with customers encouraged to order any personally configured MY17 Commodore vehicles via their local Holden dealer before April 2017, with all vehicles ordered after that being subject to availability.

Adding to cosmetic enhancements, Holden has introduced three new colours to the 2017 Commodore range, including Light My Fire (orange), Spitfire Green and Son of a Gun Grey, giving customers looking for a collectable final model year vehicle another tough decision to make.

The Commodore range has been simplified for 2017 with manual transmission reserved for V8 sports sedans and utes, whilst SS-V models and Calais Sportwagon are no longer available.

Communications Director at Hold, Sean Poppitt said,

The 2017 Commodore honoured the attributes that have elevated it to be one of Australia’s most loved cars, whilst hinting at the exciting, technology focus the next-generation will offer.

Commodore has always stood for leading driving dynamics, exceptional customer value and a striking road presence, and the 2017 Commodore is a perfect example of that,” said Mr. Poppitt.

Not only have we added some great styling enhancements like black accents and some stunning new colours, we’ve also dialed up the technology offering with head-up display and satellite navigation available on SV6 models.

There’s a range of trim levels ranging from the Evoke which starts at a reasonable $35,490, right up to the Caprice V at $61,490.
