New ZB Commodore Recruited by South Australian Police
South Australia’s police force has conducted a number of exhaustive torture tests to find a replacement for its fleet of VF Holden Commodore police cars. And, the car to pass all these tests is the all-new ZB Commodore.
SA Police has selected the ZB Commodore RS for general and highway patrol duties and around 100 examples are expected to join the police force, gradually replacing the VF and other vehicles in the police fleet. The Commodore RS is laden with technology such as lane keep assist, active hood pedestrian protection system and autonomous emergency braking.
Power is delivered by a 3.6 litre V6, that sends power to an adaptive all-wheel drive system via a nine-speed automatic.
“SA Police have run an exhaustive comparison of vehicles from every manufacturer and we’re proud our latest Commodore has once again proven its credentials when it comes to vehicle safety, specifications, durability, dynamics, performance and importantly manufacturer and servicing support,” Holden’s Director of Sales, Peter Keley, said.
“Holden’s Australian engineers have worked collaboratively with SA Police to ensure this vehicle meets the leading safety and performance requirements needed for modern policing and importantly to ensure it is the safest vehicle possible to protect their frontline officers.”
The Kia Sorento is also expected to join the South Australian police fleet.
