Holden has announced the arrival of a new set of performance-oriented special editions for the Holden Commodore family, with the Commodore Black joining the range with V6 or V8 power and in three different bodystyles.
The Commodore Black can be had in either SV6 or SS form, and as a ute, Sportwagon or sedan.
The cost? A mere $1000 more than a regular SV6 or SS. The price of entry for the Black SV6 Sportwagon comes in at $42,490, while the SV6 ute and sedan have special drive-away pricing of $38,990 and $34,990 respectively
V8 versions will retail at $42,490 for the Black SS ute, $45,990 for the Black SS sedan and $50,190 for the Black SS Sportwagon
There are no power upgrades, but with the SV6 pumping out 210kW of power and 350Nm of torque and the Commdore SS making an even gruntier 304kW and 570Nm, the standard level of performance should suffice for most.
Instead, the Black Edition presents a value-packed spec upgrade.
For the extra spend, buyers will gain a colour head-up display, satellite navigation, unique 18-inch alloy wheels, red contrast stitching on the seat upholstery, Black Edition floormats, Black Edition exterior badging and a Black grille, DRL surrounds and mirror casings.
For the sedan and ute, a set of 20-inch “Baretta” alloys can also be optioned in for an extra $1000.
The full Commodore Black SV6 and Commodore Black SS range is now on sale nationwide.
