HSV launches new Grange


Holden Special Vehicles will launch a more powerful, restyled HSV Grange WM3 with a host of new technology for 2011

The HSV Grange WM3 has received a host of upgrades and improvements including more power, a new more dynamic styling package, and three new technologies.

As standard, the Grange will receive HSV's Enhanced Driver Interface (EDI) which is an touch screen performance data interface. EDI delivers real-time vehicle dynamics and performance data to drivers, including G force, power and torque, accelerator and brake position, and stability control data.

HSV Grange will also be available with HSV's new optional LPI technology, which allows the engine to operate on both LPG and regular unleaded petrol.

Also as standard, HSV Grange receives Side Blind Zone Alert (SBZA) which provides the driver information and warning when objects are passing through their vehicle's blind spot.

HSV Managing Director Phil Harding believes the upgrades in the new Grange suits the character of the vehicle.

"The Grange buyer traditionally wants the most luxurious, and technologically advanced Australian-made performance car there is," said Harding.

"Grange has always fitted that description well, but the new styling, increased power and extra technology makes WM3 a compelling proposition for a luxury car buyer that is passionate about driving."

The HSV Grange WM3 goes on sale at the end of September 2010, and becomes the second HSV model (following GTS) to be powered by the company's 325kW 6.2-litre LS3 V8 engine.

It now features the company's unique 'hi-flow' intermediate exhaust with bi-modal rear mufflers. Maximum torque remains 550Nm at 4600rpm.

The HSV Grange WM3 will receive a new front and rear design, and for the first time will incorporate Daytime Running Lamps.

HSV Grange also receives a new premium leather colour option in Light Urban, which is available as an alternative to Onyx Black.
