eek FWD Commodore

I was talking to a mate, who said a mate of a mate, was doing some work for Holden, and he said he saw a current model commodore with the bonnet open with east west V6 in it. He said it had DOHC stamped on top of the engine. Has anyone else heard of this? I really hope they do go FWD, Ford will have to built another assembly line to cope with the demand

Probably got confused with a Vectra or some other Holden product.

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.

Mabey he saw that electric-hybrid one which has a four-cylinder engine and batteries mixed together and i think it was front wheel drive.

He said it was a full size V6, and he said he could see the drive shafts to the front wheels, until some Holden heavies told him to leave.
I don't know if it is fact or weather this bloke is pulling his pud, but maybe Holden is that arrogant, they think people will still buy a FWD commodore in the same numbers as they do now?

Maybe it was an AWD Commodore?

Remember the new GM V6? Could it be one built for testing purposes? Think about it..
