When taken a closer look, the Commodore is more like the Opel Insignia with the lion logo. The uncertainty of the future of 2018 Holden UTE has led to speculations as for how the vehicle might be. Mentioned below are speculations regarding the Holden UTE if it is based on new generation Commodore.

2018 Holden UTE – Fresh New Look Promised

The 2018 Holden UTEs expected to be built on GM’s global E2 platform. And this would make this vehicle extremely light in weight, yet durable and tough. Along with the light-weightiness, the sleek European appearance makes the vehicle look stylish and elegant. The aerodynamic shape of the vehicle imparts a sense of sophistication to the UTE.

The front fascia of this amazing UTE will present a broad grille structure along with a winged strip. The grand lion logo is present on the strip. On both sides of the grille are sleek and slim headlights, which run on IntelliLux LED Matrix Technology. The front bumper is narrow and has many small openings.

The fog light slots are small but stylishly sculpted and give the vehicle a very smart appearance overall. The subtle fender flares along with incision on door panels and smart character line give a new dimension to the vehicle. Work has also been done on the rear side with new bumper and taillights.


Like the exteriors, the interiors of new Holden UTE are also expected to be done in state-of-the-art style. Great combination of advanced technology and new European-inspired design is what gives the vehicle an upscale appearance. The dashboard of the vehicle is redesigned with 8-inch touch screen along with smartphone compatibility.

The cabin is well insulated from outside sound and noise and you can enjoy a peaceful journey. The seats are comfortable with proper heating and cooling features. Among the other prominent features, adaptive cruise control needs special mention.
