4WD Commodore

I heard on the radio this afternoon that Holden has announced that a 4WD version of the Commodore will hit the streets in 2003.
It seems that they have yet again beaten us to the punch. While Ford talks of doing things Holden actually does things.
Come on Geoff, lets get things moving.

Yes, so true. Ford always are full of talk. We will do this, we will do that.

But Holden always does them...Ford just talks about it..

Commodore 4WD is old news. There was mention of it in the latest Wheels or Motor.

Today's Daily Telegraph (Sydney) has a picture of it today. It is obviously a computer mockup, but looks real enough.

At least the Ford was out and about and in the flesh. It only requires approval from the US to build it... No-one has seen the real Dunnydore yet..

Actually - I remember seeing photos of a Commo with 4WD and a transfer case visible a while back.

Yeah it was in the June edition of Motor or wheels i think.. if my memory serves me correctly. It was the white station wagon with the crossover but there was also a picture somewhere of a falcon wagon with a all wheel drive set up..
