Whats happening around Nicholson Autos?

With Holden having a huge change within the company, it is exciting to see all the new models starting to come out. The 2017 Holden Cruze is no exception.

Coming as a sedan to run alongside the Holden Astra hatchback next year, the medium sized car market has a lot to look forward too. The US-market Cruze is powered by a 1.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine producing 113kW of power and 240Nm of torque. GM claims a 0-100km/h of around 8.0 seconds. Technology is another huge factor, coming with an 8″ MyLink touch screen and the all new 4.2″ instrument cluster display. To put the icing on the cake add in these safety features 10 airbags, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane-keep assist and forward collision mitigation.

With so many new improvements to the Holden Colorado, here are a few things you may have over looked…

 

  1. Remote Start: That’s right, with one press of the button you can start your Colorado from outside the vehicle.
  2. Windows drop 5 centimeters: The front 2 windows open 5 centimeters when opening the door, then close once the door is shut. This eliminates the “thumping” noise.
  3. Embedded Sat Nav: No more BringGo, now with Sat Nav as factory in some models.
  4. Phone Projection Technology: Send’s everything up onto your 8″ Touch screen using ApplePlay or Android app.
  5. 18″ wheels now standard on LTZ & Z71.

Is the new Buick concept the NEW Holden Monaro? Fitted with a V6 twin turbo pumping out 400hp and over 300kW of raw power! This Buick was only released last night in Detroit.

Will this be the next Holden Monaro? We are hoping so. This vehicle has the right balance of technology and design to make it stand out and turn heads. Just to see the Monaro badge back next to the lion would be exciting.

Here are a few features about the new LS3 engine that is in the all new Holden Commodore Series II V8. This is a very high performance engine that demands respect.

Engine highlights include:

 

  • Cylinder Block and Rotating Assembly: the engine block was developed with math-based tools and data acquired via GM’s racing programs, and provides a light, rigid foundation for an impressively smooth engine. Its deep-skirt design helps maximize strength and minimize vibration. The bulkheads accommodate six-bolt, cross-bolted main-bearing caps that limit crank flex and stiffen the engine’s structure. A structural oil pan further stiffens the powertrain. Within the LS3 block is a durable rotating assembly that includes a steel crankshaft and connecting rods, as well as high-strength, aluminum-alloy pistons. The flat-top pistons are also lightweight, a characteristic that enhances high-rpm performance by enabling the [...]
