Holden has announced the last Aussie-built Commodore will be official unveiled on September 13.

The upgraded VF Commodore Series II is expected to go on sale in October and will come with an updated front fascia along with some interior cabin tweaks, including upgrades in the infotainment area. However, by far the most important change will be the adoption of a supercharged V8 6.2-liter engine for the 2016 SS version which is also set to receive Brembo brakes at the front, a bimodal exhaust system as well as steering wheel-mounted shift paddles for the model equipped with the automatic transmission.

Exact output figures are not known at this point, but rest assure the SS version will be substantially more powerful than the outgoing model which has 353 PS (260 kW) and 517 Nm (382 lb-ft) when equipped with the automatic gearbox and 367 PS (270 kW) and 530 Nm (392 lb-ft) of torque for the manual model.

As a final note, Motoring is reporting that Holden will stockpile a large quantity of the most popular VFII models to last until 2018 when the first imported Commodores will go on sale in Australia.
