Not the first Commo 2.0
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.
