  • Common FAQs
  • Early models, 2010 for example, boasted a braked towing capacity of up to 3,000kg for some variants. Built to take on the tough stuff, the Holden Rodeos can also carry a 1,000kg payload.
  • Prices for the Holden Rodeo range from about $2,600 for a 1978 model, to between $7,000 and $18,000 for a 2008 model, for example.
  • The very first Holden Rodeos (1972-78) were collaborative efforts with Izuzu and successive generations continued this partnership as the ute grew both in physical size and stature to a kerb weight of 1,715kg with a gross vehicle weight of 3,740kg in 2019.
  • As a dual cab it shares many of the properties of a passenger car but the Holden Rodeo is a rugged, reliable workhorse, a ute designed to compete on building sites and bush tracks against the Toyota HiLux, Nissan Navara and Volkswagen Amarok.
  • The top speed varies according to the model but averages at about 160 km/hour. The 3.6-litre manual Holden Rodeo can shift from zero to 100km/h in a credible 10 seconds.

Servicing

SIMILAR MODELS TO HOLDEN RODEO

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR: HOLDEN RODEO

The V6 petrol engine was far from perfect in the Rodeo with some reports of higher-than-acceptable oil consumption. If the engine ran too low on oil, the rings and bearings would both suffer, requiring a major engine rebuild.

The later Alloytec version of the V6 was also prone to stretched timing chains. In extreme cases, the chain could snap, potentially destroying the engine. Early signs are a check-engine light as the stretch in the chain allows the valve timing to wander. Even if the chain remains intact, a stretched chain will require replacement.

As with any commercial vehicle, the chances of buying an ex-fleet car are higher than they are with a sedan. So check any Rodeo for signs of hard use and adjust the asking price accordingly.

Four-wheel-drive variants also need a close check underneath, for damage and signs that they've been abused off-road.
