Holden gives its heroes a boost with the special-edition SSZ sedan, ute and Crewman

16 Sep 2005

HOLDEN has announced an incentive package for performance-oriented SS variants of its Commodore, Ute and Crewman models.

On sale from early October and available in limited numbers, the "SSZ" special editions are claimed to offer up to $6300 in extra features.

First up, the SSZ sedan adds leather seat trim with SSZ logo, premium performance brakes, a colour-coded SSZ instrument cluster, black centre-mounted oil and volt meters, 18-inch VZ Monaro wheels, rear park assist and Bluetooth compatibility.

Priced at $49,990 ($1300 less than the standard SS Commodore’s $51,290 sticker price), Holden says the Commodore SSZ sedan delivers $6300 of extra value. A total of 930 examples will initially be produced.

SSZ Ute pricing is $40,940 - $300 less than the SS utility’s regular price – and Holden says this represents $6250 of extra value. A total of 1200 will initially be produced.

Finally, the SSZ Crewman features all of the SSZ Ute’s extra gear - excluding 18-inch VZ Monaro wheels, premium performance rear brakes and the aero forms – for the same $47,190 price as Crewman SS.

Holden says this delivers $5250 of extra value and just 750 SSZ Crewmans will be produced.

Holden marketing director John Elsworth said premium performance brakes and leather seats were the most popular options among SS buyers.

"SS has long been Holden’s performance king and our SSZ editions make the cars even more tempting," Mr Elsworth said.

"The SSZ models have been designed to include the most appealing features to sports model enthusiasts.

"We also wanted to extend the concept across the three body styles because the SS models have been such fantastic winners in Ute and Crewman as well as the sedan.

"Similarly, we will offer the packs on all the usual SS colours to maximise buyer choice."
