Holden Statesman

VQ Statesman and Caprice

Holden logo1 Mar 1990

Based on the 2nd generation VN Commodore platform, the VQ series both resurrected and separated the Statesman and Caprice monikers.

A longer body and wheelbase (2826mm), independent rear suspension, a revised dashboard and plusher interior differentiated it from its cheaper brethren.

Both were fitted with a 165kW 5.0L V8 engine mated to a 4-speed automatic gearbox.

The base model Statesman featured climate control air-con, cruise control, remote central locking, power mirrors and power windows, while the luxury Caprice added anti-lock brakes, alloy wheels, sports suspension, variable ratio power steering and velour and suede trim.
