The Ford Falcon Examined In Detail
Holden produces a lot a different makes and models of cars and vans lets have a look the Holden Rodeo. The LT Rodeo has the most power, good fuel consumption, competitive pricing, great standard features, and the best interior in this class. All up, it’s tough to beat.
The seats are taller and deeper and the doors higher and wider. Standard features on LTs include power windows, in-dash six-stacker CD, tilt-adjustable steering wheel, remote central locking, and ABS brakes. As far as we know it’s the only vehicle in this class with cruise control.It’s also the only one to offer an automatic transmission option. Like its rivals, Rodeo also has the capacity to change from 2WD to 4WD High while moving at speeds up to 100kph.
Front suspension is wishbone and torsion bars, and heavy duty leaf spring on the rear. Holden claims the Rodeo’s ‘high rise’ front suspension gives its 4×4 trucks increased ground The instruments and controls are all functional and easy to use and the dash has a very clean layout. The seats have full slide and recline adjustability and are covered in a pleasant two-tone velour. The steering wheel and gearshift are trimmed in a soft leather-like material.Radio controls are simple to use, even at night In terms of passive safety, the Rodeo is built on a chassis that Holden says is bigger and more robustly constructed than any of the opposition in the cab-chassis and pickup market segments. Torsional rigidity has been increased by 60 percent through the middle of the frame, improving its energy absorbing qualities in a collision.
Front, side and rear structures are designed to deform progressively in a collision, and side intrusion bars help control crash energy loads on the passenger safety cell. All LT models have ABS brakes as standard equipment. Driver and passenger airbags are standard on LT Rodeos and the windows are deeper to improve visibility.
Graphics and visual displays have been made larger and simpler to read.Active safety features include upgraded brakes, bigger brake and clutch pedals, the largest windscreen in this class, and a driving position that is now higher and gives superior forward visibility.
