VT Commodore Calais

Holden logo1 Sep 1997

Again based on a corresponding Opel (the Omega), the third-generation VT model was the biggest, and most successful Commodore to date.

This version easily outsold its Ford rival, as buyers responded to the neat European styling and pleasant interior. An all-new cabin featured improved ergonomics, more space and better quality.

The VT also proved popular as an export, particularly to the United Arab Emirates.

Holden also implemented plenty of improvements underneath. The previously optional independent rear suspension was made standard across the range, replacing the old coil sprung live-axle unit that dated back to the 1978 VB.

A revised 147kW 3.8-litre OHV V6 engine also arrived, mated to either a four-speed automatic or five-speed manual gearbox.

New standard features: Long-range fuel tank, fog lights, power front seats Engine options: 179kW 5.0 V8. HSV-tuned 195kW V8 also availableSpecial editions:· Aug 98 – 50th Anniversary Edition: leather upholstery, special metallic paint, gold grille, decals (375 made).
