They're good cars. US built engines in an Aussie designed and built body.
The Monaro/GTO is from the previous generation, still a good thing, but let down by a very old design semi trailing arm rear suspension.
The newer VE Commodore that we know it as, what you call the GXP etc, ie the 4 door version, is the current generation, with much better packaging, but unfortunately isn't available in a coupe version as such.
Most of you won't know that the Camaro is actually a VE/GXP underneath, and the majority of the engineering and testing was completed on the Camaro right here in Australia.
Australia is now effectively known within the GM world as the "Centre for Global RWD architecture". Aussies just love RWD, therefore our engineers are good at developing it
Yep, proud Aussie right here
So you can effectively think of the GXP as a more practical, family version of the Camaro
We also have a "W427" version here, complete with the 7.0L engine from the Z06 'Vette
