Holden has revealed its all-new VF Commodore, giving Americans a preview of the Chevrolet SS Sports Sedan that will be imported from Australia.

Being heralded as the “most technologically-advanced car ever created in Australia” by Holden, the VF Commodore was revealed alongside the Calais V-Series luxury model, which will be the flagship for the new VF range. The Calais V has plenty of technological-firsts for Australia, including Auto Park Assist, Head-up Display and Reverse Traffic Alert.

It might be the most technologically-advanced car ever created in Australia but when it comes to the states, i wonder how technologically advanced it will be when compared to other chevrolets and vehicles from other car makers.

It should have everything tech wise that the 2014 Impala has plus it will have a different frontal appearance to the pictured Calais V variant, and a different bonnet from what I have heard.
The interior will e the same as the Calais with a different theme going on ie: Carbon look trim some possible extra tech themes including HUD ( I am hoping for MRC but am not holding my breath)
Most importantly it will ha a manual option

HUD is a must! Chevrolet is long over due for this tech, now they have the chance to do it, they better take advantage of it!

What is MRC?

MRC = magnetic ride control ... top-dog holdens already have it, and US corvettes have had it since C5 generations. MRC uses magnetic fluid in the shocks and struts to have driver-selectable suspension firmness (touring verses cornering) at the flip of a switch.

Personally, I'd love it if Chevy IQ could make it over. Sounds fun.

Or on second thought ... maybe there's some US electronics wiz who can aftermarket the HSV E3 radio upgrades like in here:

The Chevrolet will basically be a mirror copy of the Holden variant and the HUD will definitely make it along with the Chevrolet Mylink ( 8 inch screen will be used ) system that has been previewed in the Impala will be standard, as to what tech goodies they include for use in Mylink will likely be announced when they are good and ready, right now would be my choice :)

Chevrolet's MyLink better be good. Since Cadillac falls under the same brand Chevrolet is under, General Motors, I hope MyLink won't be anything like Cadillac's CUE system.
