Holden Commodore, Ute and Crewman SSZ Text & Photos courtesy of General Motors Corporation 09-15-2005 Extra temptation for Holden's performance heroes Holden’s SS model performance heroes will deliver extra temptation in SSZ special editions to be released on Commodore, Ute and Crewman. The SSZ packs provide up to $6,300 in extra performance specifications, interior and exterior features being demanded by typical SS customers. Holden Marketing Director, John Elsworth, said premium performance brakes and standard leather seats topped the list of extras for people wanting the long-standing leader of Holden’s sports range. “SS has long been Holden’s performance king and our SSZ editions make the cars even more tempting,” Mr Elsworth said. “The SSZ models have been designed to include the most appealing features to sports model enthusiasts. “We also wanted to extend the concept across the three body styles because the SS models have been such fantastic winners in Ute and Crewman as well as the sedan. “Similarly, we will offer the packs on all the usual SS colors to maximise buyer choice.” In addition to the usual SS specifications, the SSZ sedan features leather seats with SSZ logo, premium performance brakes, color-coded SSZ instrument cluster, black centre-mounted oil and volt meters, 18-inch VZ Monaro wheels, Rear Park Assist and Bluetooth. Recommended retail pricing of $49,990 (excluding dealer delivery and government charges) delivers $6,300 of extra value. A total of 930 will initially be produced. SSZ Ute features leather seats with SSZ logo, premium performance brakes, color-coded SSZ instrument cluster, black centre-mounted oil and volt meters, 18-inch Monaro wheels and color-coded hard tonneau cover with twin aero forms. The aero forms were inspired by the Utester concept vehicle released in 2001. Recommended retail pricing of $40,940 (excluding dealer delivery and government charges) delivers $6250 of extra value. A total of 1200 will initially be produced. SSZ Crewman features leather seats with SSZ logo, premium performance brakes on the front wheels, color-coded SSZ instrument cluster, black centre-mounted oil and volt meters and color-coded hard tonneau cover. Recommended retail pricing of $47,190 (excluding dealer delivery and government charges) delivers $5,250 of extra value. A total of 750 will initially be produced. The SSZ sedan, Ute and Crewman will go on sale in early October

Wow, after all these years when I look at the Commodore's roof and doors I see CATERA. I can't wait for the new generation to start showing up... because that will mean the US isn't far behind.

Interesting...more variations...it seems like Holden has made a ton of performance variants of the Commodore, Monaro and other models over the last decade...every few months it's some different HSV or other performance variation...

I am really becoming a Holden convert...took me awhile. The exterior updates are slightly unusual, in that the sides look soft but the front looks very angular and crisp....they look great though.

While I like the Catera (hey it was the lone RWD model and it was made in Germany) and I still love these Holdens I agree wiht you Ocn. These cars are getting mighty long in the tooth. They have that hint of 1982 Corvette desperation in their styling.
