SKU TR16D

The VL was the final 'small bodied' Commodore and proved popular enough to ensure Holden's survival until the arrival of the larger V6-engined VN. At launch in 1988, the Trax Commodore was seen as a bit 'modern' but the passage of time sees the VL now fit neatly into the Trax 'Golden Age of Australian Motoring' ethos.

Features Include:

  • Diecast chassis
  • Detailed exterior
  • Limited edition of 5,000 pieces
  • Released Year 2000
  • Packed in box with clear plastic window (Code G)

The Commodore was smaller and lighter than the traditional Australian family sedan and Opels sent to Australia - especially those fitted with V8 engines - suffered dramatic failures during testing. The local Commodore was redesigned to such a degree that 65 percent of components were Australian.

During the Commodore's first eight years on the local market a variety of 'home-grown' six and eight cylinder engines with automatic or manual transmissions were available. But that changed with the arrival of Unleaded Petrol (ULP) and the VL Commodore. Released in March 1986 this model became the first 'full-sized' Holden to use a Japanese engine. Powering the VL was a 2962cm3 Nissan engine with electronic fuel injection, a single overhead camshaft and electronic engine management. Known as the "Powertech 6 Ei', the allow head engine developed 114kw in standard form and from August 1986 was also available in 150 kW turbocharged form.
