    Can confirm part of the end of the video - Holden Acadia is built right here in Spring Hill, Tennessee alongside the GMC Acadia (no way, really?!?!), Cadillac XT-5, and Cadillac XT-6. Even though they are essentially a sticker swap of the GMC version I actually think the Holden version looks incredible!

    Holden wanted to End off the non-HSV Commodore by fitting one with an LS3 containing 304 Kw (407 Hp) on a Performance-Oriented, 95-98 Octane Sedan: The VF2 SSV Redline.

    Very good video, the "ute" was actually first designed far earlier by ford. And it was a car to take pigs to market during the week and nice enough for church on sundays, do one on the aussie ford falcons as they had alot going for them also (fastest production 4 door in the world at one point)
