Just had a thought.
With all this talk of Holden reducing the size of the v6 from 3.6 to 3.0 and then some speculation about a possibilty of the 2.8 litre turbo joining the ranks do you think that holden might someday switch to a bmw or Merc style of naming the cars according to engine size? and pricing them accordingly?

What are your thoughts?

VE SSV
Holden at the VE model have changed to the "MY" numbering of the models.

ie: VE MY08, etc.
no longer will it be series I or II etc

2013 MY12.5 SV6Z + 2016 MY16 SV6, both manuals
Check VIN

July 08 will be an MY09.

To confirm, check the number just before the L on the VIN. 9 equates to MY09, 8 to MY08. However, I am not sure how they identify 8.5, 9.5 etc.

Do you mean something like "Omega 3.0", "Omega 3000" or "SS6000"?

Or Holden "CLX 3000" for example?

It could happen but Holden has a tradition of specific model names, rather than just BMW 520 for example, so I doubt that the current policy will alter. I do, however, think that the Commodore nameplate will reach its use-by date and be dropped eventually.

yes exactly what i was referring to.
for me it would make more sense to do it like that. especially with diesel engines coming into the line up.

MY09.5 60th Anniversary LPG Sedan
My10 ve

The next update to the VE Sedan, Wagon, Ute and LWB are dubbed the MY10 VE. The changes can be summarised as follows:

V8 Calais Sedan has been deleted, only the base, not the V.
Omega Ute manual has been deleted.

Atomic is no longer available
Provence is no longer available
Ignition is no longer available.

There will be 2 new colours:
Poison Ivy (Dark green metallic on sports models)
Wildfire (Burnt orange metallic, similar to Hackett Gold in a VTII)

They haven't announced any others changes as yet, but expect SV6, Calais, Calais V, Statesman and Caprice V6's to pick up the direct injection 3.6lt and 6 Speed Automatic.

Rumours are about that the Base motor drops to a 3.0lt direct injection, but nothing has been confirmed.
