Dispatched in 2006 after GM’s 2003 deserting of their last European back drive vehicle, the Opel Omega, the VE is the principal Commodore model planned totally in Australia, rather than being founded on an adjusted Opel-sourced platform. Given this and high open desires for quality, the spending plan in building up the vehicle purportedly surpassed A$1 billion. Underpinned by the new Holden created GM Zeta stage, the VE includes more complex free suspension in general and close even 50:50 weight circulation, prompting improved handling. Engines and transmissions are to a great extent continued from the past VZ model. However, another six-speed GM 6L80-E programmed transmission was presented for V8 variations, supplanting the old four-speed programmed now consigned to base models. The plan of this new model included imaginative highlights to help limit send out costs, for example, a balanced focus reassure that houses a flush-fitting hand brake switch to encourage its transformation to left-hand drive. Internationally, the Commodore is again identification designed as the Chevrolet Lumina and Chevrolet Omega, alongside its new fare market in the United States as the Pontiac G8 (stopped starting at 2010 alongside the Pontiac brand).
Variations by Holden’s exhibition arm, HSV, were delivered not long after the car’s introduction, trailed by the long-wheelbase WM Statesman/Caprice models. The VE Ute didn’t enter creation until 2007 while the Sportwagon started creation in July 2008. A VE V8 Calais was granted Wheels Car of the Year, being the fifth Commodore/Calais model to do so.
In late 2008 Holden made changes to the VE Commodore, including the expansion of a traveler safety belt update framework. The rollout of such alterations permitted the VE range to be redesigned in stages (subject to show) to the five-star ANCAP security rating during 2008 and 2009.
