VF is the "base" vehicle here, planned to be sold in the US under another name, with minor cosmetic differences.
Should things get too unwieldy or the models prove sufficiently distinct I can see the need for two separate articles but not now.
They should be merged IMO. -Oosh (talk) 13:01, 12 December 2012 (UTC)

– Although having the model code (e.g. VF) in between the make and model is acceptable usage, it is confusing especially for international readers who would find this unique-to-Australia convention thoroughly odd. It is equally as common in the media to have the format as VF Holden Commodore or Holden Commodore VF. International readers may understand the model to be marketed/badged as the "VF Commodore", when in reality it is just "Commodore". As per Wikipedia:WikiProject Automobiles/Conventions#Disambiguation, parentheses should be used after the make and model to contain the generational identifier (VE, VF, etc). AFAIK, the only other batch of automobile articles that have their page titles similarly formatted are the Australian Ford Falcon, which I will nominate separately if this proposal succeeds.

Support, for the reasons you have given. Also, consistency makes it easier for the readers to find articles based on their knowledge of other articles they have read (ie make, model, model code). Stepho talk 07:11, 6 May 2014 (UTC)

Now that the Holden Commodore & Ford Falcon page names have been "internationalized", has any consideration been given to the existing naming of the various Chrylser Valiant pages, eg Chrysler VC Valiant? Has any consideration been given to the hundreds of entries in various Australian motoring and motor sport pages which currently use the “Holden VF Commodore” format style in the actual page text? How do we now describe a Ford XB Falcon GT Hardtop? Is it a Ford Falcon (XB) GT Hardtop or a Ford Falcon GT (XB) Hardtop or a Ford Falcon GT Hardtop (XB)? GTHO (talk) 09:24, 4 June 2014 (UTC)
I think that the Chrysler Valiant pages should be changed, with the goal of conformity, as should the format on motoring pages (which would take a while, I know). Ford Falcon XB GT Hardtop would suffice...no need for parentheses in my eyes (like how the Altima is listed as "Nissan Altima L33" on the V8s season articles). Manufacturer-model-model code-specification level makes more sense than any other order. KytabuTalk 11:25, 4 June 2014 (UTC)
As the old page names are redirects, this is not a problem. If you wish for "Holden VF Commodore" to become "Holden Commodore (VF)", you could request a bot to do this as it is an easy task. I also support the moving of any possible Chrysler articles using the old format. As for the Ford XB Falcon GT Hardtop, I'd personally use Ford Falcom (XB) GT hardtop or possibly Ford Falcom GT hardtop (XB). But whatever you choose is not of great consequence as long as the intended information is conveyed clearly. OSX (talk • contributions) 15:04, 4 June 2014 (UTC)
Depending on context it should not be neccessary to write a phrase like Ford Falcom GT hardtop (XB) at all. Within the Ford Falcon (XB) article Falcon GT would be sufficient. --Falcadore (talk) 11:10, 5 July 2014 (UTC)
Ford XY Falcon GT page should be moved to Ford Falcon (XY) GT to fall in line with the changes in designation. I did relocate it, but edit was reverted.Space alligator (talk) 11:14, 5 July 2014 (UTC)
I agree with you, but you can't do a cut and paste move. It will need to be nominated and then moved by an admin, see WP:MOVE. OSX (talk • contributions) 11:29, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
