Holden continues to wheel out pricing and specification details for its 2014 Commodore family, today announcing price cuts and new technology for the VF Ute range.

Unlike the Commodore sedan, the Ute range features no Evoke or Omega model, kicking off instead of with the eponymous Ute.

The Ute is priced at $32,990 - $2500 less than the VE Omega - but like the Evoke sedan, it adds Auto Park Assist, reversing camera with front and rear parking sensors and an eight-inch screen with iPod connectivity and Holden's MyLink infotainment system.

Blind Spot Alert and Reverse Traffic Alert can also be optioned with the Ute model.

Power in the Ute is provided by Holden's 3.6 litre petrol V6 (the Evoke sedan gets the 3.0 litre engine), and a six-speed auto is the only option.

Buyers seeking a six-speed manual can opt for the SV6, which carries the same price as the Ute and the same 3.6 litre engine.

Moving up to the V8-powered manual SS Ute marks a $3500 price cut to $38,990 and offers features that mirror the less powerful SV6 model.

The SV6 and SS models are equipped with a sports body-kit, 18-inch alloy wheels, projector headlights with LED daytime running lights, Sportec/cloth combo seat trim, Blind Spot Alert, Reverse Traffic Alert, a chrome exhaust tip and a soft tonneau cover.

Choosing the manual SS V adds leather-appointed seats, 19-inch wheels, sensor key with push-button start, front fog lamps, a colour instrument cluster display, satellite navigation with live traffic updates, footwell lamps and DVD playback.

Topping the range is the SS V Redline, which adds Brembo brakes, forged 19-inch alloy wheels, updated FE3 Ultra sports-tuned suspension, a colour Head-Up Display, Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning.
