    OK There's no doubt they are nice vehicles but I guess there had to be a starting point and these are those starting points.

    I'm guessing GM USA had a significant hand in stopping HSV really going to town on the Colorado at least?

    I don't think there's anything we didn't really already know?

    We knew the Camaro was coming as a conversion. Silverado was suspected as well.

    And the Colorado is a bit so so. Would have been nice to see some kind of engine tickle at least but decent brakes and the option of Supashocks are nice. Hopefully the pricing is on point. I'm glad they didn't call it Wildfire to compete with the Wildtrak

    Really I'll keep buying Holden/HSV because there installing a dress up kit on a Colorado with zero more power than a stock Colorado. Silverado which is a real specific market due to it's size (same power output in a Colorado would interest me) & lastly Camaro which has my interest but not at the price tag it will have with added conversion cost. If you compare cost to the Mustang which be honest is it's competitor in the market place. FAIL all three for my interest.

    I was waiting for someone to say that about the Wildtrak!

    Tell me guys, Tim Jackson HSV boss, he would have to have been the great NSW/Australian 100/200m sprinter back in the early/middle 90's is he not? Had the nickname Tim "Jet" Jackson. The guy had supercharges on each leg. I remember watching him nearly run a sub 10s 100m in the 1990 Commonwealth Games in NZ

    Silverado will likely be 120-150k
    Since I Tow I want one but not at that price.

    LT1 Camaro meh they should have came out first go with the big doggy ZL1 and said a big HELLO and watch how many people part with 120-150k without even batting an eye lid.

    Colorado you can’t hype it up without making it make more HP... that’s the whole point of HSV making cars go faster.

    Tend to agree with all 3 points GenF.
    Also, any idea why they are not looking at a V6TT ZB Commodore ?? maybe GM will import the Cadillac ATS-V ??
    It kinda sounds ok, but to me HSV = fast 4 door sedans.

    I would sell a kidney to get into an ZL1
    I tow, a lot, & the Silverado would be great..but the buying price & then the $$$$'s
    to keep it on the road would be HUGE!!!

    They claimed it doesn't fit in the engine bay. May be some issues with AWD vs RWD as well.

    Caddy is meant to be coming at some point in time
