To stem off the re-engineered Holden VZ Commodore and revised Toyota Camry, the BA MkII XR range was about a host of minor trim and specification alterations, including several new colours, redesigned alloy wheels and a suspension upgrade on the 260kW/500Nm XR8.

The 240kW/450Nm Turbo and XR8 models were now fitted with a Tremec T56 six-speed manual gearbox, while the standard 182kW/380Nm XR6 remained as a five-speeder.

Plus there were subtle modifications to the auto and suspension tune, with traction control made standard on both auto and manual.

New standard features: cruise control, headlights-off device, rear power windows.
