In December 2013, GM announced that it will discontinue Australian production of the VF Commodore and all other Australian production in 2017. The VF Commodore is built on an altered version of the Holden designed GM Zeta platform, which was first used in the VE Commodore. The VF is an evolution of the VE, with several visual changes. The VF features new styling at the front and rear, with a more modern, sculpted appearance replacing the simplicity of the VE’s design.
