Dubbed by General Motors' Australian subsidiary Holden as the "most advanced vehicle created in this country", the new VF-series Commodore sedan will be officially revealed this Sunday, February 10, though, the automaker will use social media and a new microsite at 'buildthecommodore' to tease bits and pieces of the new model beginning on Wednesday, February 6.
The next generation of the Commodore sedan also forms the base for GM's new North American market 2014 Chevrolet SS, which is scheduled for launch towards the end of the year as a limited production model. As some of you may recall, CarScoop's Josh Byrnes recently rendered the new SS.
We still do not know when and where GM plans to reveal the rear-wheel drive sports saloon with the bow-tie badge, but this week's Chicago Auto Show and the New York Auto Show in April are prime candidates to host the world premiere of the new SS.
As for its Australian sibling, the new Commodore VF may very well be the last of its kind, as earlier this year, Holden boss Mike Devereux told journalists that production of the Commodore would cease at the end of 2016 and will be replaced with a different vehicle type without elaborating further.
"VF (Commodore) will run through to the end of 2016. We have a current plan to put a second (vehicle type) into the plant before 2017," he told Australia's News site on the sidelines of the Detroit Motor Show in January.
"VF (Commodore) will run into 2016 and if I had my druthers, I wouldn't want anyone knowing or having an inkling over what that second architecture was until almost the end of VF production," he added.
