Holden Commodore Pricing and Specs

2020 price from
$19,300*

The Holden Commodore is available from $28,888 to $54,998 for the 2021 across a range of models.

Close your eyes and picture suburban Australia and, somewhere amongst the the Hills Hoists and dangling blue Bonds singlets, there will be be parked a Holden Commodore. Holden was churning out Australia's chariots from 1978 until 2017, but they saved the very best 'til last. The VF Commodore Series II was unveiled in 2016, offering world-class refinement and engineering wrapped in the distinctly muscular body style of this uniquely Australian large sedan. The German-built ZB marked a seismic shift when it arrived in 2018, which currently ranges from the $28,888 Commodore LT to the $54,998 Commodore VXR.

Holden Commodore FAQs

Check out real-world situations relating to the Holden Commodore here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • What type of differential is fitted to the 2001 Holden Commodore?

    The standard differential on this vehicle was a non-LSD (non-limited-slip) unit with a final-drive ratio of 3.08:1. Some owners changed the gears in the diff for more acceleration, although this was more commonly done in V8 models where owners were chasing performance at the expense of a little fuel economy.

    If you’re in doubt, you can put the car on a hoist, mark a spot on the driveshaft and then turn the rear wheel a full revolution. By counting the number of times the driveshaft rotates during that process, you’ll know the ratio. In this case, one full rotation of the rear wheel should equal 3.08 rotations of the driveshaft.

  • Holden Commodore 2010: Does this model suffer from the timing chain issue?

    The early VE model Commodore V6s certainly had all sorts of dramas with stretched timing chains that could run into thousands of dollars to fix. Holden changed the design of the chain and while it did help, we’ve still heard of later post-2008 model Commodore V6s exhibiting the same problem.

    The problem is made worse (accelerated) by poor servicing, so if the vehicle in question doesn’t have an absolutely up-to-date service handbook with evidence of every scheduled service being carried out in full, we’d be walking away. Same goes for a car that rattles on first start-up, won’t idle properly or has a check-engine light illuminated on the dashboard.

  • Should we replace our Holden Commodore with a Subaru Outback?

    A car with a little extra ground clearance is great for camping as it often allows you to get a little farther away from the masses in their caravans who tend to huddle around the shower block at bush campsites.

    The Subaru Outback is a good, solid choice and if you can find an independent workshop to service it, you’ll avoid the cost of dealership prices. And you’re right, the all-wheel-drive would be great for gravel roads. Another vehicle to look at would be a late-model Ford territory diesel which is big and clever inside and has the option of all-wheel-drive. The diesel engine is a plus on the bush where that fuel is more readily available (in really remote areas) and gives you more range for big holidays in the mulga.

    Don’t rule out things like the Mitsubishi Pajero, either, which won’t be as around-town friendly, but is a proven quantity and is absolutely tremendous off-road. The same goes for a Toyota Prado or Nissan Pathfinder prior to the current model (which is a bit less hard-core adventure).
