Holden Acadia, arriving soon

Last week nearly 200 Holden Dealers gathered in Melbourne, for the launch of the all new Holden Acadia. It had been a while since we'd had the chance to collectively hear and see from the Big Lion, so Holden's executive team took the opportunity to update us on their model strategy for the next little bit too. I've got to say, I was super impressed with how this new entrant for Holden both looked and drove. It also comes with some amazing technology, that are firsts for the Holden range and certainly place it well ahead of the pack. The Acadia is a true 7 seat SUV and with it's road presence, superior drive and keen price point its certainly about to help get Holden's swagger back. One super cool aspect of the trip, was the chance to hear from Triple 8 racings owner and chief Roland Dane. Coming fresh off success at Bathurst with Craig Lowndes win, Roland gave great insight int how the world of V8 Supercars can be brought into the discipline of our day to day lives and businesses. He listed some key points that keep him on track and two really stood out for me. The first Assume Nothing, and the second Party Strong. It's really important to have laser like focus and always be alert in business, but you also have to celebrate the milestones and enjoy the successes along the way. The Acadia hits our showrooms over the next few weeks. Keep an eye out, you won't be able to miss it!!
