4 Door Holden Ute

I saw a 4 door Commodore ute this morning in Merrylands very similar to the one in wheels magazine.

It was obviously a custom job and looked like a Station wagon with the back cut away. It didn't look too bad but looked very much out of place. I definately think it would take some getting used to seeing such a long ute.

Sorry there was no pics, couldn't get the camera out in time.

There is a place in Newcastle that makes them. Not sure of the name, as it doesn't really interest me. I see a few every now and then around Newy, there is a fugly gold one that parks near work every day.

The 4 door Commodore ute was shown at the Melbourne Motor Show. The most interesting thing about it was that it featured a leaf spring rear end, in place of the usual IRS.

This is a strong hint that the Commodore ute line-up is likely to be expanded with a cab-chassis one-tonner model. Falcon has recently dominated the ute market almost as much as Holden has owned the large sedan segment - so this development only puts more pressure on the AV Falcon.
