MORE fuel-ef­fi­cient six-cylin­der en­gines head­line the changes in the 2010 Holden Com­modore. Dubbed Spark Ig­ni­tion Di­rect In­jec­tion, or SIDI, the en­gines give bet­ter per­for­mance and sub­stan­tially lower fuel con­sump­tion. A new 3.0-litre en­gine will power sev­eral passenger mod­els, and a 3.6-litre en­gine will pro­pel the sporty SV6 ute and some passenger cars. The 3.6-litre en­gine boosts power from 195kW in the cur­rent SV6 en­gine to 210kW at 6400 revs, and torque is up 10Nm to 350Nm at 2900 revs. Claimed fuel con­sump­tion is down by 11 per cent on SV6 utes with the man­ual gear­box and 13 per cent on those with auto trans­mis­sion. The auto is now a six-speed unit in place of the pre­vi­ous five-speed. The Omega ute and its dual-fuel vari­ant keep the 3.6-litre Al­loytec V6 en­gine and four-speed auto.
