Holden Commodore to be sold as the Pontiac G8Enlarge Photo
Holden’s previous export program to the US, which saw 40,000 V8 GTO coupes arrive to US, indicated to GM that the Australian subsidiary was capable of a full export program. The Pontiac G8 will be based on the Commodore SS-V, a V8- powered sports sedan with a 360hp (270kW) 6.0L V8 and RWD.
Holden is also developing the new Camaro, which is based on the VE platform. Benefiting from this development, the advanced architecture of the Camaro will eventually filter down across the VE range.
