Holden Commodore SL (VK).jpg

Holden Commodore (VK). 1984–6 (prod. 135,705, incl. HDT and Calais). 4-door sedan, 5-door wagon. F/R, 1892 cm³ (I4 OHV), 3298 cm³ (I6 OHV), 4987, 5044 cm³ (V8 OHV). With Ford’s Falcon rising in sales, Holden responded by restyling the Commodore to make it appear larger, adding fuel injection option on six, delivering a good power boost (86 to 106 kW). No four-cylinder model domestically, though still offered for export; 2·8-litre six and 4·2-litre V8 deleted. Six-light body similar to Opel Senator; wagon less changed. Three-slat front grille more contemporary, with badging location different depending on trim level. L became SL; SL became Berlina, the first time this model variant appeared. SL/E spun off into new model line, Calais, replacing Statesman’s old position. Competition victory at Bathurst for 1984. New V8 from June 1985. Last Holden with an engine made in Australia till the VZ Commodore.
