About the Commodore VP

The Holden VP Commodore is really an automobile which had been that is generated by Australian automaker Holden from 1991 to 1993. This is the seventh generation Holden Commodore. The VP Commodore was released in September 1991 with mainly cosmetic and feature changes with regard to the outgoing VN Series Commodore. The 3.8 litre V6 and 5.0 litre V8 engines out of the VN were carried over, but also the V6 engine received various revisions that improved its refinement and noise characteristics plus boosting power by 50 percent kilowatts. The 2.0 litre straight-4 engine which had been offered on the VN in certain export markets was discontinued. Semi-trailing arm IRS became standard on Calais and Commodore SS models and became an optional extra on lower-end models. This new suspension drastically improving ride and handling over that which is available from the live rear axle. ABS brakes were also introduced while in the VP range such as an option on Series 1 Calais and Commodore SS models, is without a doubt most models with IRS for Series II versions. Additional security features were introduced all over the range, including an ignition-disabling device and a driver's door deadlock. The VP have also been sold in Thailand, but used an Opel 2.6-litre inline-six Dual Ram engine.
