Any Australians anxiously awaiting the return of the Thunder can were able to breathe a tremendous sigh of relief; when Holden brought back the special-edition Thunder nameplate to the VE Series II Ute line-up. The special edition was launched as a celebration of the 60th anniversary of the original 1951 Ute and was be based on the popular SV6 and SS Ute models. The SV6 was powered by a 3.6-liter, SIDI, V-6 and the SS Ute came with the standard V-8. Both models came standard with a six-speed, manual transmission or an optional six-speed automatic.

The special edition Holden Thunder Ute will be available in 10 exterior colors and will be distinguished by unique 19-inch five spoke charcoal alloy wheels. Thunder badges will also be visible on the side and rear of the exterior, while the interior gets sports seats with leather bolsters and Touch-screen Holden-iQ system with Satellite Navigation.

"Over 60 years of production, the Holden ute has evolved from typical tradesman’s transport to two-door sports machine with a practical edge - that’s epitomized by the Thunder range," Holden Executive Director of Sales, Marketing and Aftersales John Elsworth said. "It is a really bold, tough looking ute which we think will appeal to many of our traditional sports ute buyers. We’re expecting it to be an absolute winner in our showrooms."
