2015 - 2017

The Holden Ute was the most practical muscle-car produced in Australia, and its stance and taxation made it a favorite among the petrolheads from there. Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end, and the Ute was doomed after GM's decision to shut down the model just a few years later after it introduced the last generation of this outrageous pickup.

2003 - 2007

Registered as a utility vehicle and powered by a Chevrolet LS1 engine, the Holden Ute was an underdog for the sports cars segment. The Holden Ute was one of the most Australian cars someone could describe. But don't get fooled by its utility look.
