    Possible Commodore MY17 updates

    I read somewhere that Holden will be dropping Jungle Green and Some Like it Hot for the final MY17 run and the green would be replaced with another 'hero' green.

    I saw this Commodore quite a few months ago at a Holden dealership and it's running a test paint. I don't think it's surprising that it's now sitting across the road in the used car lot with under 6000klms on it. The colour is out there (and the photos are pretty accurate in colour representation)...

    EDIT: So this colour is called Spitfire.


    Some others that have been discussed in other forums -

    Light My Fire (apparently will replace Some Like It Hot - maybe toward the very end) I like this colour

    Spitfire has been around for a while but I'm definitely not a fan. I saw it on a wagon and it's not even something I think I could grow to love.

    I liked the orange that came out with VF. That Orange on a wagon with SSV wheels would have me (and Mrs Mak) sold.

    I think Holden might be in a pickle - put too many goodies on the last Commodore, the replacement will have even bigger shoes to fill!


    I'm seeing a lot of Empire Bronze on Caprices and Calais, looks great!

    Now or never, GM. Give Holden good RHD cars, or give Holden to someone who will.

    I still don't know why they haven't included the ventilated seats. Maybe the seat frame for the Chevy SS is different? I know the bolstering certainly is. But they are the biz and everyone would love them!

    Every company should name their paints like Holden. Son of a Gun Grey makes me giggle for some reason...

    You do know that "Jungle Green" was originally "Jungle Fever Green" before it came to the US.


    It's also important to note that GM has stated an order window opening date for the 2017 Chevy SS.

    I know! The best part about Holden's colors isn't even the names, it's the actual colors. GM NA's color pallet is practically black and white in comparison.
