Holden HSV Commodore Wagon

Supercharged LSA Engine

The GTS features a 6.2 litre Supercharged LSA engine which provides a staggering 430kW of power and 740Nm of torque (DIN).

With all this power comes the need for massive amounts of air cooling, which is why the GTS’ design is not only stylish and sophisticated, but also functional with 130,000 square millimetres of air intake frontal surface area. To also assist with this need for cooling, the GEN-F GTS is fitted with a stacked plate engine oil cooler and Water to Air charge intercooler system.

Unique tail shafts cater for the higher torque loads and the rear differential helps transfer all of that power to the ground.

Torque Vectoring

Torque Vectoring uses the ESC system to detect when the vehicle is starting to understeer, and helps correct it. The system works by transferring torque across the rear axle from the inside wheel to the outside wheel. This is accomplished by braking the inside wheel and adding torque, through increased engine power, to the outside wheel. The result is a “rotational moment”, acting on the body, helping to steer the vehicle through the corner.
Driver Preference Dial

The Driver Preference Dial allows the driver to control the following electronic systems in the vehicle without making the selection too complex:

• Traction Control
• MRC (where fitted)
• Launch Control (manual only)
• Electric Power Steering calibration
• Bi-Modal exhaust
• Torque Vectoring (GTS Only)

Each model has different functions dependent on the electronic systems fitted to the vehicle however the function of the Driver Preference Dial is similar in each case – it is designed to increase vehicle performance with every clockwise turn of the dial.
