2006 Holden Rodeo
Only travelled 149012 km. This 2006 Holden Rodeo can tackle the toughest terrain or work site.
This 2006 Holden Rodeo has had a freshen up in terms of a new petrol engine. The 2006 Rodeo has been upgraded with the new Holden Alloytec engine. Designed and built at Holden’s Global V6 engine plant in Melbourne, it’s the same engine that powers the latest Commodore V6 range here in Aust.
The LT Rodeo is equipped with Dual front airbags Anti-lock brakes [ABS], Power windows and mirrors, power steering, Sixteen-inch alloy wheels, remote central locking with engine immobiliser, fog lights and a limited slip differential. With Metallic paint and Air conditioning, it is in a class of its own.
Space & practicality
Space wise the Crew cab provides adequate space for all passengers. The centre console has two cup holders and a storage binnacle, the door pockets though are somewhat shallow.
The high seating position typical of most off-roaders is also obvious with the Rodeo, it gives the driver a clear view of all points of the vehicle.
Dual airbags and ABS brakes are standard on the Rodeo LT. Its been evaluated for the ANCAP safety ratings and it receives a 3 star rating, 1 star behind the new Toyota Hilux and ahead of Mitsubishi Triton and Nissan Navara, both older designs without airbags. There are three lap-sash seat belts across the rear and the outside two are adjustable for height.
The Black paintwork looks great.
Remote keyless entry and an engine immobiliser are standard for LT Rodeo.
On the road
The Holden Alloytec engine fitted to the Rodeo develops 157kW at 5,300 rpm and 313Nm of torque at 2,800 rpm. It’s the same all alloy DOHC 24 valve design that is found in the Holden Commodore, with the power and torque characteristics changed to suit the Rodeo.
Handling & steering
The variable assist rack and pinion steering is light enough at parking speeds. Off road, on reasonable quality fire trails the Rodeo is right at home.
Smoothness & quietness
Replacing the engine in an existing design vehicle can often lead to problems however the new Rodeo showed no such issues, the engineers in Australia have done a good job adapting the Alloytec engine to the Rodeo. The engine is smooth, cabin noise quiet, and well insulated from road noise.
