New Ute Unveil in 4 days, 22 hours

36 posts in this topic

I was checking the Holden website. The unveil of the new Holden Ute is August 23. You can sign up for updates via your email. Hopefully an official announcement for the El Camino will be coming during the auto show season?

Camino, are you ready? I know I am!

I'm gonna take a while guess and say it'll look something like this:

:P

Pull that grill down alittle bit further and it would be pure sex. Right now it is about 90% sex. :AH-HA_wink:

I think Dodgefan may be right on the money, and 90% sex is better than no sex. :lol:

Question... And Holden fans don't get angry.

What is the fascination?

Do the sunrays in the Southern Hemisphere make you get wet over big, RWD car based pickups? I really don't understand.

If you have to ask, then you'll never understand. It's something in your blood man.

But, to think about it. A car based truck gives you utility with bit better gas mileage than a full size truck due to the weight advantage, and also the handling is better than a tradition pickup truck.

Another good thing, most are two seat and you can take the wife (or husband, or partner) with NO KIDS. There's a pleasure in that. Also, if you want a Crew, you can get one and have a practical truck with room for the family and a bed for utility. Its the best of both worlds.

What's not to like ? Utes are perfect for many uses, from a base model for tradies to a two door sports car with a tub out the back. They have a carrying capacity up to 1800 lbs and a towing capacity up to 3500 lbs ( and these are very conservative figures ), and a 6.0l v8 manual with IRS "SS" model that has everything an "SS" sedan has minus the back seats, whilst being lighter, faster and about 9-10k cheaper, and having better resale value. Then there are the HSV models with LS2's - awesome. These are the VE's that I am most interested in and it's been a long wait.

Can't wait to see what it will look like!

Take a VE and cut the back off, it's a Ute. :smilewide:

Take a VE put a Pontiac badge on it, it's a Pontiac.

Take a VE put a Chevy bade on it, it's a Chevy.

Take a VE put a Buick badge on it, it's a Buick.

Take a VE put a Cadillac badge on it, it's a Cadillac. :rolleyes:

I just can't to see it and the HSV versions. The wagon should be great too. Just get yourselves down here and see them in person - they're sex!

I love them because even with the hi-po models I can still throw stuff in the back and use it in a practical manner yet its a faster, cheaper coupe.

And.. the ute is an Aussie invention, the ute culture here is massive!
