The advanced 3.6 litre Alloytec engines are more powerful, responsive and fuel-efficient than the outgoing ECOTEC V6. Matched to all-new and upgraded transmissions they deliver noticeable increases in all-round driving refinement. Selected models bring advanced active safety features that electronically assist the driver to maintain vehicle control in emergency situations.

The lightweight, all-aluminium 3.6 litre Alloytec is a 60-degree V6 belonging to a new family of GM Global V6 engines that incorporate state-of-the-art features and premium performance characteristics. It is locally produced at Holden's $400 million Global V6 plant in Port Melbourne, Victoria, and comes in two variants: Alloytec and Alloytec 190.

The Alloytec engines operate with advanced double overhead camshafts and four valves per cylinder. A combination of high feature technologies allows them to extract more power from less fuel, with fewer emissions. They deliver more peak power and considerably more torque across the rev range than the outgoing 3.8 litre 152kW ECOTEC V6.

The Alloytec produces 175 kW of power at 6000 rpm and 320 Nm of torque at 2800 rpm. Ninety per cent of the torque is available between 1630 and 5460 rpm.

The high-performance Alloytec 190 produces 190kW of power at 6500 rpm and 340Nm of torque at 3200 rpm. Ninety per cent of the torque is produced between 1570 and 5870 rpm, which is a 38 per cent wider rev range than the previous 171kW Supercharged V6 engine. This wide 90 per cent torque range is a performance attribute normally associated with V8 engines.

Alloytec feature highlights include continuously variable cam phasing for outstanding operational flexibility, a powerful micro-hybrid engine control unit that facilitates extremely fast data flow, electronic throttle control, variable intake manifold (Alloytec 190), coil-on-plug ignition, forged steel crankshaft and piston cooling jets. Long-life new exhaust systems have cast-iron manifolds and dual close-coupled catalytic converters.

Models powered by the Alloytec 190 offer a new five-speed automatic transmission with 'Active Select' paddle-shifters on the steering wheel. A new, premium application six-speed manual transmission is available as an option on the sports performance Commodore SV6. Models powered by the 175kW Alloytec and V8 offer a comprehensively upgraded four-speed automatic transmission that provides smoother shifts under all operating conditions.

Improvements to throttle control, engine calibration, induction and exhaust bring increased power and torque outputs for the SV8 and SS V8 which now produces 250kW of power at 5600 rpm (a rise of 5kW) and 470Nm of torque at 4800 rpm (a rise of 5 Nm). The Statesman V8 increases peak figures to 245kW (a rise of 10kW) and 465Nm and V8 Calais and Berlina figures are unchanged at 235kW and 460 Nm.

Electronic Stability Program (ESP), widely regarded as one of the most significant automotive safety systems ever to come on the market, is offered for the first time on an Australian-manufactured sedan. ESP greatly improves vehicle safety performance in situations where the driver takes emergency action to avoid a collision. It does this by electronically correcting vehicle paths through brake application to individual wheels and engine torque management. The system operates so smoothly that in most situations the driver will not be aware it has been activated. All Alloytec models with ESP feature Corner Brake Control, which helps to maintain optimum vehicle stability during heavy braking on curves and corners.

The latest generation Bosch ABS system, which optimises stopping distance with faster, surer braking, is specified on all Alloytec models. As another advancement, Electronic Brake Assist comes standard on all ESP-equipped sedans. Commodore Executive, Berlina and wagon models have a Brake Assist feature. Both systems can sense how hard and fast a driver hits the brake pedal and they give extra braking assistance if it is required. Alloytec-powered sedans and wagons have an Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) feature that optimises control of rear brake pressure on all road surfaces and under all vehicle loading conditions.

Complementing these advances, all models have upgraded braking systems with a new brake booster/master cylinder combination that invokes a very fast brake pressure response and increases safety margins by reducing stopping distances by approximately four per cent. All models are equipped with a new traction control system for smoother, more flexible brake pressure control.

Refinements to front suspensions deliver sharper, more direct steering response and all models receive high quality new lightweight power steering pumps.

January 2006 brings changes to engines to comply with the strict Euro 3 (ADR 79/01) emissions regulations. All vehicles built from the 1 January 2006 must comply with these new regulations. The main change is the introduction of the Gen IV 6.0L V8, known as the L76. This V8 replaces all current variants of the Gen III 5.7L (LS1) V8 used by Holden. Note that Holden Special Vehicles (HSV) will continue to use the LS2 variant of the Gen IV. The L76 is rated at 260kW and 510Nm. The 3.6L Alloytec engine requires minor changes to the engine, exhaust system and calibration to meet Euro 3 requirements. These changes included new fuel injectors and a new exhaust catalyst.
