Hardwearing, functional and practical – these are the traits tradies look for in a utility vehicle. Although your lifestyle should also be considered, a durable workhorse with enough space to load your tools is crucial. Given these needs, Holden saw the opportunity to introduce a vehicle which can double as runabout vehicle and a dependable trade mate. Enter the Holden Commodore Ute – a tradie’s best mate.
Flexing its Holden muscle
Its lighter and more streamlined body could fool anyone but the Holden Commodore Ute knows how to flex its Holden muscle. This ute’s athletic stance and sweeping lines speak of strength and elegance. From the cabin’s nose to its tray’s tail, everything is perfectly in proportion. In addition, its trimmed shape enhances its aerodynamic efficiency. Bearing the hardworking legacy of its predecessors, the Commodore ute will work its trade and get the job done with ease.
Powerful and precise performance
In contrast to its ultra-sleek exterior, this vehicle carries a beast within it. Powered by a 6.0-litre V8 engine, it produces 270 kilowatts of power at 5600 revolutions per minute (RPM) and 530 Newton metres of torque when paired with its 6-speed manual transmission. Its smooth, short-throw transmission will always deliver spirited driving. Thanks to its precision-tuned Electronic Power Steering or EPS, drivers can expect a 0.2-litre savings per 100 kilometres. Light-weighting measures were also included to help save on fuel and enhance its performance on the road. The Commodore ute was engineered for pure performance.
Designed for perfection, both inside and out
More than just a weekday utility vehicle, this ute is a lifestyle machine. Holden’s designers took their time in improving the Ute inside and out so you can work hard and play hard. Inside, drivers will be treated to power adjustable driver seats with lumbar support and leather or cloth seat trim. This ute’s cabin space was also extended to offer more room for its driver and passenger. It also features behind-the-seat storage which allows for 245 litres worth of baggage.
Outside, a high-density tub liner was included to protect and maximise space. Its ergonomic design protects the tub from the elements and allows for more payload. Loading bulky items is now easier than ever with the ute’s tub featuring grooved floor rails and moulded load ramp recesses on its tailgate. These help tradies ensure their cargo is secure while travelling.
Delivers a comfortable ride and improved road handling
Holden’s designers and engineers included wider tyres to maximise grip with every turn. Front and rear ventilated disc brakes help maximise the vehicle’s stopping power. Linear Control Suspension and Electronic Stability Control also help keep the ute safe while on the road. Designed to be stable and flat while navigating around tight corners, this vehicle’s independent rear suspension and low centre of gravity ensures a safe and comfortable ride.
The Holden Commodore Ute is designed for work, created for an active lifestyle and engineered for durability. Every tradie who wants a reliable and fun utility vehicle should consider this fine specimen. If you are in the market for a Holden Commodore Ute in Brisbane, check out Bartons Holden.
