Hopefully we do get the SS sportwagon, if not we can always get a CTS-V wagon :D

Instead of bringing all members of the new Commodore VF family out in the open at once, Holden has chosen to release the separate models in stages.

GM's Australian subsidiary began with the regular sedan and the more luxurious Calais, which were followed by the SS V and its American counterpart, the 2014 Chevrolet SS, and now, we have the Sportwagon and Ute models.

Both the station wagon and the pickup truck version of the Commodore VF series benefit from the same exterior re-skin and a new interior, with all body styles sharing their V6 and V8 engines, though, Holden has yet to release any details about the performance specs.

The Commodore SportWagon pictured here is the more premium Calais variant, while the Ute is the SS V model, likely sporting the Chevy SS's 415hp 6.2-liter LS3 V8.

Holden confirmed that all three Commodore body styles – sedan, Sportwagon and Ute – will go on sale at the same time.

Will we see any of the other body styles making it to North America? According to former Holden boss and now GM North America chief Mark Reuss, there's a possibility that one of the two body styles presented today could join the Chevrolet SS.

“It’s a little bit late for Ute,” Reuss told Australia's Drive. “[But] some people think it would really a really cool thing to do. It’s not too late for the wagon,” he added, leaving the door open for a SS Sportwagon model.

I haven't read anything about the UTE but I remember back in the days when the El Camino was out, it didn't sell all that well, it's not like something you would see out in the masses.

I think they should still bring it to the U.S. as the El Camino as a low production vehicle, just to make Chevy that much more cooler

An SS wagon or SS El Camino (Ute) in a sporty red or blue for me please. I could then sell my treasured '96 LT1 Roadmaster wagon. Either would work for me, I'm not asking for all that much....am I? But hurry G.M., I turn 58 next month :rolleyes: Got that whole mid-life thing going on right now!

Fellow motorcyle riders/racers will love the UTE, but I don't see GM selling the volumes to support this happening.

Personally, I prefer to just pull a trailer in exchange for a back seat or more utility. But, the UTE would be convenient for frequent bike transport.
