This is how a 2018 Holden Commodore Ute would have looked like

Less than three months remain before Opel and Vauxhall unveil the new Insignia Grand Sport – the second generation of the Insignia – to the global public at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show in March 2017. The new Opel/Vauxhall Insignia Grand Sport will have other versions as the Buick Regal (North America) and the Holden Commodore (Australia).

In the Land Down Under, the Holden Commodore has a utility (ute) version, which is basically a Commodore transformed into a coupe-like pickup. However, Holden has decided to stop production of the Commodore in Australia. Instead, Holden will import the Opel Insignia Grand Sport and rebadge it as the Commodore. Because of this, Holden practically killed off the ute version of the Commodore. This means, that for the next generation of the Commodore, the ute will no longer be available.

Perhaps knowing that the new generation of the Holden Commodore won’t have an ute anymore, a certain rendering artist named Theophilus Chin created his own – albeit through visual graphics. Chin’s eagerness to see an ute version of the Commodore and the frustration that it won’t be available anymore could be why he made an effort to imagine and render an ute version for the Australian auto market.

2018 Holden Commodore comes with a V6 just like its Insignia Grand Sport

Just a few short moments after it unveiled the new Insignia Grand Sport, GM is up for another astonishing revelation. Apparently, the 2018 Opel Insignia Grand Sport will be getting a new V6 engine version for Australia. So let’s all welcome the new generation Holden Commodore for the land down under!

Blame it on the different time zones. Others have thought that Holden was the first to reveal their V6. Whatever the case may be, we think both are sure winners. Hyped as the “most advanced Commodore” yet, Australia’s rebadged Insignia Grand Sport will be powered by a 308 hp V6 3.6 litre naturally aspirated engine with up to 273 lb-ft of torque.

In that case, there may be a slight difference from the current Commodore’s engine specs. The new version gets an additional 27hp and 15 pounds feet of torque aside from the standard AWD layout and GM’s first ever 9-speed AT gearbox.
