|THE VL COMMODORE||6/17/07|
|The Commodore VL line was launched in March 1986, following the success of the VH line. Though the Holden VL was followed by many other models in the Commodore series, many people still believed that the VL series contained the best model that Holden had ever produced.|
Holden ventured outside the country to incorporate better engines ? such as the high-tech Nissan 3 L engine - and transmission into the Commodore VL?, though by 1986 drivers had begun to favour low-octane and unleaded fuel. However, these foreign-made engines and transmission systems gave the base model 33% more power and a 15% better fuel economy. Another optional feature of the Turbocharger, offered in July 1986, enhanced the power output of the Holden VL from 114 kW to 150 kW.
The Holden VL would be the last of the small-body Commodores and the only one to feature a modern OHC engine, which is, in fact, an alloy-headed unit designed and manufactured by Nissan. The power and fuel economy provided by these engines assured their immediate success with the public, so they easily earned the distinction of being the best Commodore that Holden had ever produced up to that point.
Holden stoped production of the vl commodore in 1988 althoe the vl is still a popular car choice for young drivers
