The question is, will the SS have the Holden front and grill with a bow-tie on it (like the mid-east Chevrolet's) or will it have Chevy's new corporate grill and front end styling?

The yellow Chevy looks like a G8 with a Cruze grill.

Based on those renderings, the new Commodore doesn't look much different than the current car.

GM: Please don't put a Malibu front end on this car.

Re: Chevy SS/Commodore VF Renderings

It is going to look more like the blue and black rendering.

Re: Chevy SS/Commodore VF Renderings

eh. I'll await till Feburary. Those pictures are still using too much current GM products to make their renders. Reminds me of all the 2014 impala renderings which looked nothing like the final product.

Re: Chevy SS/Commodore VF Renderings

I like both the blue and yellow renders, I wonder how the production car will look? Anyways, V8 RWD Performance sedan - damn tough choice if the SS makes it for a few years SS or GT??????

I'd say GT500 but I figure with the way Ford is going along with the economy a GT500 kitted out right will easily be 80k or more come next generation.

Nascar "SS"


If this is an indicator, looks like we are getting a Holden with Chevy badges. That makes me happy because Holden's usually have good aggressive styling.

Youtube video of the new 2013 Commodore VF Race car. If Nascar adopted to this type of car, now that would be cool and get me watching again!

It was skipped for that very reason.

Chevrolet is moving away from the split grill. It starts with the upcoming Impala, and next up the refreshed Cruze won't have it.

GM is merging Holden and Chevrolet. The Commodore SS and Chevrolet SS will almost certainly be the same car with different logos the way Holden's Cruze, Volt, and upcoming Colorado are vs Chevrolet's versions.

BTW, this a closer rendition of the Holden/Chevrolet VF (also you can even just barely make it out on the NASCAR version):



Also (and I won't hold my breath till it's actually sitting in a showroom), apparently the idea of importing the Ute is back on again.

The 3 things putting it back on the table?

1. It won't look like a G8 with grille change (the VF styling is new from the front pillars up), and would be a good companion vehicle to the SS

2.GM is serious about making Chevrolet the world's biggest brand over Toyota.

3. The vehicle is CAFE neutral (although it would actually help GM's truck CAFE numbers...which are figured differently than cars...it's expected to sell in such small numbers that it wouldn't make a difference).

Plus one other thing...

The Chevy Spark wasn't predicted to sell anywhere near the numbers they're selling, and GM is scrambling to get more to dealers. This has some people at GM rethinking some of the other vehicles they don't think would sell here, and the Ute is one vehicle on the list


BTW: for those of you thinking that's just a Volt front photoshopped onto a VE, check it out again.

Re: Chevy SS/Commodore VF Renderings

Holden = Chevy is a great thing!
I don't know if it works the other way around... but i am glad to see such a move!
