  1. seriously one of the worst things Holden has ever done.

    I've seriously seen 2 maybe 3 of them.... and there is no freakin way i can recall the amount of Territory's i've seen. They shoulda made the Adventra look a helluva lot different to the commodore (or not made it at all?), theres just too many look-a-likes.

    when i first seen it i thought that it would be a flop.

    the Cross8 and Crewmans seem to be selling OKAY.


    Also, I've seen one HSV Avalanche, and yet to see an XUV (doubt I ever will too)
     
  2. They still try to sell them.
     
  3. They fail just like every other Holden.
     
  4. and now they are releasing the V6 version with 190kw and the five speed.
     
  5. The 10 or 20 people that have always wanted to drive their v6 commodore wagon offroad will be very happy.
     
  6. people will start buying them once the v6 comes out. the v8 was never gonna be a big seller because of the fuel economy problems and terrible auto tranny
     
  7. I asked Mr Holden. He told me to tell you that you're an arse.
     
  8. WHAT!?!
     
  9. I saw an Avalanche.

    I'd drive it.
     
  10. They do look like shit, there's no denying it.

    I'm seeing a hell of alot of Crewmans though, which I find quite surprising.
     
  11. You heard me/him. Or read.
     
  12. A guy i know called timowns a adventa its black looks ok in black. one of about four ive seen. I dout they will sell that many V6's compared to terra. Cant wait for a oil burner in the terra
     
  13. and where might they source this oil burner from, chances are...it isn't going to happen.
     
  14. The one thats in a jaguar and the land rover.
     
  15. chances are it is gonna happen for both ford and holden.

    did you know that Holden is actually owned by GM, which just happens to own one or two other companies as well. they seem to like sharing parts too.............
     
  16. The Territory needs an oil burner badly. It would be such a great car if they dropped one in.
     
  17. what's wrong with the standard 182kW inline six from the falcon? its a bloody top engine, and with 380nm, there wouldnt be many, if any diesel engines (in the current ford empire) that could better it
     
  18. Did you know that Ford isn't Holden?
     
  19. REALLY? I thought it was all along...why hadn't you said something sooner <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/pitlane/emoticons/tongue.gif"></A>
     
  20. i've been in an adventra they arnt the best cars but they certainly arnt as bad as everyone makes them out to be
     
  21. WHAT!?!?!!!?? noooooo..............you cant be serious................
     
  22. It's a soft 4x4 it doesn't need lots of kw's, plus it drinks fuel like it's going out of fashion. A diesel is perfect engine for the job being economic and torquey.
     
  23. I think what the narrow minded people on this forum don't realise, is what the car would need to make it better, and what would make it more profitable (by selling more units, for less cost) are completely different.

    THe Territory is not a "off-road" vehicle, it is aimed at the people who want something like an off road vehicle, but don't go off road.
    By introducing 2 engines into production for a car that would sell small numbers of diesels is impractical.

    It would cost an arm and a leg for them to get a diesel version ready for production, and the small amounts of people who would buy diesels for their benefits in fuel consumption and low end torque, go out and buy other vehicles such as Patrols, Cruisers, and (oh my goodness) LandRover Td5's.
     
  24. Did you know that nobody mentioned putting an oil burner in an Adventra or where they would source such an engine?

    Therefore making your poor attempt at owning somebody with sarcasm stupid and irrelevant...
