Not the first Commo 2.0

Wheels (Australia) - - Headtoheaod -

Ev­ery­one knows there was once a ‘Com­modore 4’ (a 1.9-litre nail from 1980-83) but did you know there was also a VL Com­modore 2.0? For NZ and Thai­land, Holden pro­duced a down­sized 2.0-litre to sit be­low the 3.0-litre RB30 sixes. But the VL 2.0 was no or­di­nary dunger. Drink­ing leaded fuel, it pro­duced a strong 95kw/180nm ( com­pared to 114kw/247nm for the ULP 3.0). And as its RB20 en­gine des­ig­na­tion might im­ply, it packed six cylin­ders, not four.
