The Holden Special Vehicles (HSV) production line located in Melbourne are still in operation! At the moment, they are working hard in converting the new pick up Chevrolet Silverado 1500 V8 petrol from left drive to right. This new large pickup model has made its debut in Australia starting from $113,990 plus on-road costs. This price is costlier than its rival, the RAM 1500 V8 pickup by around $34,000.
Holden Special Vehicles has stated that the higher price is due to the currency exchange rate and RAM Australia will also be increasing their prices for the same reason.
