With early Commodore sales booming, the WB Statesman was the only passenger car survivor of the aborted HQ-based WA/WB Kingswood project.

New, Americanised front and rear styling, a longer roof, redesigned rear doors and profile, more interior space, a bigger boot, a fully remodelled cabin, better air-con and ventilation, and increased equipment levels highlight the changes.

Only the front quarter panels, windscreen, bonnet and front doors were HZ body carryovers.

The SL/E model was dropped. A revised 5.0-litre V8 engine now produced 126kW.
