VT Commodore Engine and Transmission Specifications

VT Commodore Other Specifications

The VT Commodore was the first Commodore in the 3rd generation. As a brand new car, the VT looked much more advanced and futuristic than the previous model VS. It was a complete makeover from the previous model.  

The VT was the result of a $600 million development by GMH Australia to improve its already popular Commodore. The investment paid off, with the VT Commodore being the best selling Commodore to date.

The VT Commodore won Wheels Car of the Year in 1997.

The Monaro was released in 2001 and was based on the VT Commodore. The Monaro had not been seen in the Commodore era.   

The VT did not have an aaccompanying utility vehicle. Instead the VS utility was carried over from the previous model and would continue in production until the year 2000, when the VT was ultimately replaced.
