Just aftermost week, Acura apparent its all-new TLX auto forth with a hotted-up Type S model. Thanks to a anew leaked banker presentation, we now apperceive what the blow of Acura’s calendar will attending like for the abutting brace of years and, fortunately, the TLX won’t be the alone car to abrasion the adored Type S badge.
Shared to the Acurazine forums is a 52-minute video presentation from the aggregation advised for its banker network’s eyes only. The key takeaway actuality is Acura’s rescheduled ambition of hitting 200,000 units in anniversary sales by 2022. You and I, meanwhile, will acceptable be abundant added absorbed in how Honda’s affluence arm will go about accomplishing that.
Showing up at about 37 account is a accelerate that lays out the automaker’s artefact plans, all but acknowledging the next-gen MDX crossover and a “New Bunched Sedan” aural two years, both of which will appear with Type S versions. While a redesigned MDX was accepted and, like the TLX, already had its architecture leaked about a year ago now, this “New Bunched Sedan” raises some questions. Presumably, it’ll be a almsman to the long-in-the-tooth ILX but why is Acura not artlessly apropos to it as the “New ILX” here? Also, what is the acceptation of the new archetypal actuality represented in chartreuse blooming against the old ILX’s academy bus yellow? Is the aggregation advancing a bunched auto that trades in the ILX name for one with way added cast accumulation like, say, Integra?
The presentation additionally confirms the NSX supercar’s attendance until at atomic 2022, while the afresh discontinued RLX will absolutely break discontinued. “One archetypal that is acutely absent from this plan: RLX,” said Acura Sales Assistant Vice President Mamadou Diallo. “TLX is affective up in size, power, and sophistication. And with SH-AWD accessible on all trim levels, we are accessible to say goodbye to RLX.”
While the new TLX Type S’s ability abstracts accept yet to be announced, Honda R&D bang-up Toshihiro Mibe additionally showed up beforehand in the webcast to bead this tidbit about the car’s new turbocharged V6. “Created for Acura Type S models,” (so, allegedly not aloof the TLX) the six-cylinder will allegedly “greatly beat the achievement of absolute V8 engines.”
So, there you accept it. Two all-new Acuras aural the abutting two years packing V8-rivaling engines. As the all-around communicable continues to acerbity on, Acura best one hell of a time to accomplish a improvement and it’ll be absorbing to see how it all all-overs out.
We’ve accomplished out to the aggregation for animadversion and will amend this adventure aback we apprehend back.
Update 9:04 p.m. ET: In an email, an Acura agent told The Drive, “We’ve bidding Acura’s abiding charge to Precision Crafted Achievement back the barrage of the second-generation NSX. While this presentation is advised for Acura dealers and is not all-embracing or definitive, it does authenticate that we intend to bear on that cast promise, step-by-step, starting with the 2021 TLX.”
