At Detroit Auto Show, General Motors has confirmed that the Holden Commodore will be exported to the United States. The Commodore SS, a V8-powered sports sedan, will be sold as a Pontiac from late this year or early next year. Holden expects to export 30,000 Commodores annually, about half what it sells locally.

"We are seriously planning to import a lot of Commodore SS sedans as Pontiac G8s," Mr Lutz said. Mr Lutz said the export of the Holden Monaro as a Pontiac GTO from 2003 to 2006 (during which 40,000 of the V8 coupes were sold) brought Holden’s expertise to the attention of its parent company, General Motors in North America.
