“We wanted to celebrate the anniversary of an icon by introducing even more great value features on the all-new VF Commodore. The VF range has been very well received and we’ve continued to look at how we can offer maximum value, so we’re delighted to be able to introduce an even more compelling package to large car buyers. At such a competitive price, and loaded with technology, we expect it to be another winner in our showrooms,” said Phil Brook, Holden executive director, vehicle sales, service and marketing.
The first-generation Holden VB Commodore, loosely based on the Opel Rekord E, was introduced in October 1978.
