    I just Googled Holden Acadia to see what one looked like.
    I once saw one in Auckland a few months ago - it had advertising on the side for Schofield Holden Acadia.
    Haven't seen one since in Sydney but maybe I'm blind to them since it doesn't stand out from the pack, like many other cars now (not just Holden).

    Slightly off topic but I would have preferred the Holden Nullabor that never was, sigh.

    That Nullarbor would have sold well. If it had been released instead of the VE 2, before Holden's death knell was announced, who knows what might have eventuate?

    I would love one myself having had an Addy LX8.
    But Adventra didn't sell much so Holden probably a bit scarred from a package like this.

    It would be good (yet fanciful) if all Holden Commodore & Falcon lovers collectively chucked in and started a co-op based Aussie car company.

    That's a Jaguar F-Pace with a Commodore front-end photoshopped on - not a Holden design...

    There are V8 options for Colorado now. $100k plus though. Turns the car into something nuts!

    I have to agree, with the current offerings i wouldn't be surprised if the last nail goes in the coffin within 10 years.
