    Walkinshaw Performance (WP) has announced a new Fury Pack for the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 in Australia.

    GM’s partner Down Under is offering visual upgrades and performance parts for the full-size pickup truck. Available exclusively for models remanufactured by HSV and equipped with the 6.2-liter V8 engine, the Fury Pack includes a WP cat-back sports exhaust system and a 2-inch (51-mm) lift kit for the suspension courtesy of 35-mm (1.4-inch) MTV dampers.

    The suspension upgrade is designed to maintain the truck’s on road handling as well as comfort and stability on harsh terrain; it’s also said to improve towing stability and tracking when hauling heavy loads, and body control across all applications. Walkinshaw Performance performed a 14,000-kilometer (8,700-mile) lap of Australia over the harshest terrain to validate the hardware.

    Doesn't matter either way for cost or loyalty to Holden reasons it is a dead duck. GM is dead in Australia and nothing they do will ever fix their huge image problem.

    Is that why they left the market? I've never been to Australia, but via Australian posts on GMI I've always felt like Holden's image was tied to the past - cars that people loved but no longer want. Holden couldn't convert its customer base to modern vehicles. In other words everyone wanted Holden to build the Ute and Commodore but few actually wanted to buy them anymore.

    THey sold more of them than any of the ZB Commodores or any of the colorado light trucks that Holden was left with after local production stopped

    Even at it's lowest point people bought more local Holdens than any of the imported crap they were stuck with

    I visited a Holden dealership four years ago in Adelaide. There were so many good choices. When I said that to a local, I was told "You're a bloke!" As if that was bad thing.

    The "modern" cars GM/Holden were trying to push people into lazily rebadged Opels and that strategy hasn't really worked anywhere except China.

    No one was being pushed, they chose to buy Hyundai and Great Wall instead
