The big launch today has been the Opel Insignia Grand Sport, the new generation of sedan German. Although General Motors (GM) operates through several brands in different countries. That’s why we’re going to talk about the Holden Commodore 2018, what has come to be the Flagship Grand Sport will come to Australia. If the Opel will come to Europe in the second half of 2017, Holden will have to wait until 2018.
One of the main differences between markets are the mechanics that we use. In Australia, premiered mechanical four-cylinder and 2.0 liters in both petrol as well as diesel. Will be the new access to a range that previously began with a six-cylinder. We do not know the power that will deliver, but yes that will be front-wheel drive and that will be linked necessarily to a automatic transmission of nine speeds.
Although the aspect that most of us envy will bring to some european customers will be the engine V6 naturally aspirated 3.6-liter. Has increased its power and now develops 312 HP and 370 Nm (27 HP and 20 Nm more). This variant leads all-wheel drive series and the same automatic gearbox nine speeds. Although some australians sure are annoying because the new model does not offer mechanical V8, at least for the moment.
The positive part is that the new platform used by the Holden Commodore in 2018 (the same as the Flagship Grand Sport) makes it up to 200 kg lighter than its predecessor. Also that its technological equipment has improved considerably and you will have a complete equipment. This Commodore will be the first that will be manufactured outside of Australia, since Holden is reducing gradually their activity and even shut down its engine factory a few days ago.
