Some quick facts about the ute (or what we locally refer to as the pickup truck). It has the same supercharged 6.2-litre LSA V8 engine that is shared with its sedan counterpart and weighs almost 1,900kg. You could have it in manual or in an automatic, both of which have six-speeds. There are three driving modes that can be selected by Driver Preference Dial, making adjustments to ESC, steering and the bi-modal exhaust system to suit which mood you are in. Surprisingly, it has torque vectoring to reduce understeer. Other interesting facts but not exactly useful to us include a payload of 400kg and towing capacity of 1,600kg.
Unfortunately, the world's fastest pick-up is only limited to 250 units and this model is likely to be the last of its kind as General Motors shuts down the whole Commodore range.
