what about Evoke, SV6 models? surely you got some of those as well?
There's no Evoke build allocated. If you get an order for an Evoke, we need to contact Holden and see if they can allocate one...
We got plenty of SV6, so much so that I'm not sure how we're going to sell them without a discount. Right from the start the V6's have never really sold without some form of incentive, people don't chase them like they do the V8's.
I reckon with the reduced build numbers and gap to the new model, they could have just built V8 only (apart from police and rental) and put them at RRP until sold. With no V8 in the near future, they would not really go stale. The 6cyl is a whole different segment and has a lot of competition, but if you want a V8 sedan, options are thin !
It definitely feels like they've under forecast V8 demand. V6 retail orders are always strong, but at discounted prices, not anything like full RRP. It's going to be interesting to see if they will pay incentives on SV6 etc, because at present it's $36490 on the road for a 2016 SV6 Black edition, whereas a 2017 SV6 runs into about $45000.
I would assume that even with the huge american aftermarket crate engine market, that holden is still the largest customer of LS3 engines at the moment. I wonder when the last delivery of the LS3's from Mexico will be made or are the engines stockpiled in Melbourne? Does anyone know if the LS3 will remain in production as GM Powertrain crate engine after the last commodore V8 rolls out the door in Adelaide?
Somebody got my plates before I did. I actually ordered and paid for them and then was told too late someone already purchased them.
GM still make brand new SBC engines in Mexico for the aftermarket, so I dare say they will make LS for a while also. They are doing LT crate engines now but people are still using LS as the fuel setup on the LT is more complex due to direct injection... plus there have been some high profile LT failures in the first Corvettes to use them.
Having said that, if you want one I cant see them being much cheaper here than right now. I bought one from a Holden surplus shop for $7200, a lot of engine for the money.... much cheaper than shipping it from the US.... at least while they come from Holden !
Hi Timandhayley, any advise on when the dealerships are going to be briefed on the MY17 line-up, it would have to be before Thursday I'd imagine. My dealer says no news to date but from their point of view they already have a sale, is changing car orders a PITA for them, thanks.
They should already have it. I ordered 30th Dec and the sales guy showed me MY17 commodore range and specs sheet.
Holden officially will update their website on the day they announce MY17 and the packs 19th i believe.
MY17 stuff is already out, has been for a while. I put up the spec changes and RRP increases a few weeks ago, along with confirmation of colour changes.
19/1/2017 is just confirmation of the 3 special pack models they are building from June onwards (Names, Features and prices). There's a few people holding out until then, but 99% of the information is already out, so I don't know what people are waiting for.
A big red NOS button lol
Has cross drilled rotors been mentioned for the packs
I don't know the full specs, I've only seen our internal RPO codes list, but there's a few ambiguous ones in the list which can mean any number of things.
What codes are they?
Do you know if the MY17 will get the chevy SS seats?
I'm waiting for the price and options on the special editions, my dealer can't advise of either. As 99% of the information is out maybe you could let everyone know what the options are and the RRP, thanks Tim.
Price is not available yet and I'd only be speculating, but I would assume a $6k to $7k premium over and above the regular models. That will be the big thing released on Thursday, along with the specs, names I don't think mean much to most people. We've taken deposits on most of our cars, customer's are going to buy them whether they're $65k or $70k. Maybe our customer's are different to you guys, but a HSV doesn't seem to interest them, they're after the exclusivity of the last build, individually numbered cars.
Not sure, sorry I can't be more helpful.
These are the option codes (RPO) for everything fitted to the car. Now these link up with individual models, so sometimes the same code on a different car can mean different things. If you look at the specs for a Chevy SS Sedan, the car will be very similar to that
Well that's suitably intriguing, Bet you can't wait for Thursday timandhayley, maybe the questions will slow down a bit, at least they should be answered
Separate names with a comma.
