Holden Commodore to get smaller 3.0L V6 with 25 mpg

Holden’s Commodore is expected to get its smallest engine in more than 20 years as Holden looks to fill demands for more fuel-efficient cars.

According to a report by Drive, the Commodore is expected to get a new 3.0L V6 later this September. The smaller capacity V6 will get an advanced direct-injection fuel-system to further improve efficiency and most likely be mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission.

The current 3.6L V6 in the Commodore gets an average fuel-economy of 22 mpg. The new 3.0L V6 is expected to average closer to 25 mpg.

Holden refused to comment on upcoming Commodore update saying: “We don’t talk about future products.”
