The XR6 Turbo can throw down better than any Holden Commodore SS or HSV 1

Ford BA Falcon XR6T v Holden VY Commodore SS. Ford’s original S-XR6 did a fine job of making its XR8 stablemate look a bit girly back in ’91, but then it wasn’t quite man enough to embarrass HSV’s VP Clubsport, and it neglected to set any new benchmarks. You can throw the SS around with confidence because it encourages you to do so, and its brakes are bloody good, too, refusing to fade after several 185km/h stops, and offering unyielding force on the road. It feels quicker, more effortless, and more polished than the SS, and with its instant torque, the Falcon has grin-inducing thrust out of corners. Ford Falcon XR8 vs Holden VFII SS V Redline. And I don’t want to hear any griping about how either Ford or Holden have already taken their bats and balls and gone home, leaving us with leftovers to carry us through to our date with destiny. In the red corner, the Commodore SS has picked up a few visual changes, some new gearing, suspension and brake tweaks and the piece de resistance: the 6.2-litre LS3 V8 nicked from the storage cage over at HSV. Not only does the Commodore have more feedback and a better quality of it at that, it’s also a more natural steerer.

I can only comment on G8 ute Vs XR6T ute (both bog-stock autos) Falcon: Pros: bigger tray, great gearbox, nicer braking feel, better turn-in, goes way harder. Other than traction control and ABs, the ford has no driver aids, the traction control is useless, can have bellowing smoke with or without it:D Oh, it does have launch control which actually does work well, used it. AS a break down road service I see a lot more SS Holden’s then fords broken down but neither are too bad.

Just for reference, the HSV ClubSport R8 LSA and Holden Commodore SS-V Redline we also tested on the same day at Heathcote were both slower than the GTS and XR6, confirming the GTS if anyone had any doubt is indeed the quickest GM vehicle available in Australia. That’s also more power than the 350kW we saw at the rear wheels of the limited-edition FPV GT F 351 in 2014, when it out-powered the 340kW GTS. Unlike the regular red rocker cover of XR6 Turbos or the blue of the old F6, the Sprint gets the black finish last used on the Territory Turbo. They were also tested locally against key rivals like the Commodore SS-V Redline and even the kilowatt-king HSV GTS. It feels lighter and better defined in its operation than the same unit in the current Holden and HSV V8s, and is actually quite sweet to drive once you acclimatise to the spring-loading that’s still heavier than the norm.

Well my brothers, my step father and I test drove an XR6 Turbo today. My stepfather is a Ford bloike, but he had to admit that the HSV was a better drive than the XR6 Turbo.

With traction off it’s much more ebullient through corners, and generally speaking it’s lighter front end makes it easier to throw into corners without the front outside wheel pushing wide. It holds gears for engine braking and shifts down if a lower gear can deliver more power, and the surely if ZF is still selling them to Audi and BMW to put behind V10 powerplants then something’s going very right. Road Test: HSV Senator vs. Yep, as you’ve probably heard, Holden Australia is closing down local manufacturing of its vehicles by 2017. This means there will be no more Commodore. To cap it off, Holden will also service your car for free at any of its dealers until 2020. Gently around suburban streets, and the steering is well weighted and composed but take it to the limit on a track, or throw it down a winding road, and the XR8 will arc up and chuck out it’s 335kW of power in a flurry of growls and cracks to give big fun. 0L inline-six engine fuelled either by petrol or LPG, but you can have a four-cylinder EcoBoost engine as a no-cost option on Falcon and G6E models.

Whet he said, The SS wins hands down as far as V8’s go, but my pick would still be the turbo with a t56 manual. The Typhoon is a 270kw upmarket version of the XR6 Turbo.

RX – 3yrs, XR6T – 2.5yrs, 6MPS nearly 2 years, Heritage – 7 months so far! I agree, but that means finding something I really like. A 3.0L Liberty barely does any better. The V6 in the Holden is crap, so the V8 is the only option. Only the SSV Welly and SWMBO must drive our harder than you:9wink:. And still the factory is pumping out more SS & HSV units as we speak:rolleyes:. I think it’s a fair call to say that Holden Lova’s 420kw Falcon runs nines – 12. Xr6t, bags me out for what was just a bit of a test run. This thread is funny but I can’t help but think there is more than one person posting under that tards user name.

Top Gear Australia magazine claim in their new issue that the XR8 will have 375kw courtesy of a ‘transient over boost’ which gives it an extra 40kw for short bursts, also that it will have xr6 spec interior to keep costs down as they claim it will be targeting the SS. And its RWD!!!! I’m giving Ford as much of a go as I can, Mid Feb I have to make a decision, lease is up, I either dump the FG and update to a 300 or Commodore or pay out the FG and tread water till FH is released. Norm one of my bro inlaws has had a number of hipo cars over the years incl a heavily modded XR6T to FPV 335’s to driving many friends hsv’s to M3’s GTR’s etcetc.

HSV has long claimed to produce world-class competition for the German benchmarks and, while there’s certainly a long history of offering exceptional performance and value, the Clayton concern has perhaps brashly claimed to be equal on pure merit, sticker price notwithstanding. The GTS’s 1880kg puts it on par with rivals E63 S (1795kg) and M5 (1870kg), XFR-S (1875kg) and RS6 (1935kg).

Sodium-filled valves – I know the ’84 Volvo 760 Turbo had them, so they’re older than that. I see the HSV GTS as a Holden that narrows the gap to the more expensive European luxury touring cars like the BMW M5 and Merc C32 AMG.

For the asking price of a SS you could have a base model 4cyl BMW, a secondhand, grey import, no warranty R34, or a WRX (styling) if that turns you on. GT stripes are highly identifyable with the GT name, they couldnt bring back the GT without at least the option of stripes. As for the comment earlier in the thread about a Ford to put up against the HSV, well why bother, the 300kw hsv gts does a 0-100 in 6 seconds, if you compare this to a XR6 turbo who has 2 less cylinders and 60 less kw and does the same 0-100 sprint in 6.

Im not interested in whether an LS1,LS2 or LS7 ( or anything pushrod from GM for that matter ) is economical on fuel or not, they just arent anything earth shattering in my opinion, versatile or not, it just proves how narrow minded and lazy GM are, or how ignorant the Australian buying market are, in Europe i doubt one of these cars would get a 2nd look over a BMW or Audi in a similar price range that shits all over them in every category.
