ZB LT Sedan 4 cylinder 2 Litre Petrol Turbo
Just wondering if say the 2020 ZBs are still retuned for Australian conditions, as was occurring with 2017, 2018 releases/manufactures and perhaps the 2019 release too.
Reason I'm asking is that I saw on car sales a 2020 ZB advertised. Can we get to the the truth of it. I gather you/we need to know one of these engineers to actually find out????? Tezza

They are. They removed Opel badges and stuck Holden badges. They also call it a Commodore...and some people really thought it was so went out and bought some. In reality...purchasing disaster in terms of street cred bruz

You seem totally incapable of writing intelligibly, and with efficacy about anything at all .
What's the chip on your back?

I bought a widget with a 4 cyl. 2 litre petrol turbo and it's absolutely brilliant, yes it has a badge on it .. All I did was research what info I could .. Yes Holden officially badged it as a Commodore, ZB . I bought it because, indeed, it is brilliant as independent reviews unequivocally stated. There is also a member on this site that gave it high praise.. " engine is a cracker " , and so on. I have owned it for 12 months and it is still a cracker. It's a goldilocks ( just right). car in all respects.

Of course they were retuned for Australia, especially the suspension.
The Holden engineers specified the heaviest duty suspension available, to give the Euro a chance to survive the warranty period.
