A pictorial history of the Holden Commodore Ute from 1990-2013.

While looking for information on my old Holden, I realised that data on original equipment and model specifications was hard to find. At the same time, photos documenting original Holden cars on the internet are rare. To this end, I have put together an image library of GM Holden cars from 1948 to the present day. Some pictures copyright GM.

Holden cars are documented in their own gallery and Monaro models are in Holden Monaro History. For newer models, see Holden Commodore 1978-2013

Please standby while I migrate all content from the old servers to this one...

 


VG Commodore Ute

By 1990 there was sufficient demand for Holden to start building utility vehicles again after a gap of over five years since the WB Holden ended production. 

The VG ute was built on a long wheelbase platform also used by the station wagon and the VQ Statesman variants.

VP Commodore Ute

The utility model was updated in-line with updates to the Commodore sedan and the VP model began to use the same model designation as the sedan.

VR Commodore Ute

The VR sedan was a major update to the styling and engineering so the front of the VR ute carries these updates but the back end of the bodywork looks the same as the previous models making it look somewhat dated.

VU Commodore Ute

With the release of the VT Holden Commodore, there was a desperate need to replace the almost ten year old utility model. When the VT was updated to the VX, Holden finally released a utility successor, the VU. Almost everything was changed to update it to current specs...under construction...
