As for styling, think latest Cruze & Captiva for the lead.

If it takes on the cruze styling it could look really good...if it goes epica way...well it will mean one ugly piece of car lol.

Epica is quite dated now and has been more or less superseded by the the Cruze. Cruze II is the latest theme they are running.

lets hope they fix up one major problem. the A Pillars.
been in and driven a VE Calais and it creates a massive blind spot just waiting on people to be hit/killed because they werent seen

hopefully they do make it look better. and if they do go the cruze way itll look good.
maybe even some good stock models. eg the 5L executive could now be the 6.3L Omega

I doubt it will/can be changed till they give it a rebody down the track a bit.

well it seem to be what holdens done ever since the commodore was released in australia, 1st gen was around for about 10 years, 2nd gen was 9 and the 3rd 9. so makes sense that the VF will just have a face lift and a few minor cosmetic changes, until the 4th gen commodores days are up. it costs millions to make a brand new car anyway.

im guessing he means hopefully they bring out v8 based low end models, like a VP executive i use to own that was factory 5ltr... these days all omegas are v6... bring on a 6.2ltr omega
