Grab your pics boys, Acura is taking legal actions, TOV and Reddit have already took down the pics. I think the other media outlets will follow suit.

I think it's the design language from the precision concept, first shown in the ILX:

There are more pics here:

And one of the pics shows a V6 engine clearly. But not sure if that's for the TLX or MDX....

https://news.yahoo.com/photos-next-g...213300367.html

https://www.caranddriver.com/news/a2...dx-tlx-photos/
  1. Renderings that could show the next-generation Acura MDX and TLX have popped up on the forum AcuraZine.com.
AZ has made the mainstream media news

I see them all the time around here, flabbergasted every time that someone walked in and said "yes, I want to spend my hard earned money on this car and not the far superior other car down the street".

I see no turbos on that engine. Probably another ~280hp 3.5L NA V6 with some gimmick to get 0.0002 extra mpg.

Shocking for sure.
Just checked & there are only 4 Mitsu dealers in Houston. That alone would give me pause to buy one, since the closest dealer to me is 1/2 way across the city (25 miles, or at least 1/2 hour to 45 min) from me.

That only makes the "leaks" (which they are not, the photos were in the apk) seem even more true.

And they're both ugly as hell. I guess the 3G TL will continue to be the last original, pretty design Acura put out.

In the RDX thread... whoa.



I like the interior if they could find a better grille design, it would make the front end look great. The designers need to stop making a specific grille part of their design language, especially when it hasn't ended up looking decent in a while now.

Almost anything is an upgrade from the current TLX.... but please... dont put the same 3.5L V6 in a brand new TLX....

It served its purpose (many years ago), it is time to let it rest in peace.... or pieces.

Agreed. The J series is over 2 decades old. It's not a bad motor by any means, but when you can get a Camry with more power, it's...sad.

The turbo V6 can't come fast enough (or, you know, four years ago).

At this point I'll take a turbo anything...

In all fairness, both of these renderings look really good. The MDX will for sure sell like hotcakes (if they finally get rid of that stupid double screen) and the TLX looks far better than ever before.

just look at Honda Passport height relative to competiton. with performance and fuel efficiency greater. I don't see any reason to replace it.

I've missed your completely irrelevant responses to people.

. Acura version with Premium fuel 310bhp and 10 speed auto will further improve performance.
This 310bhp and 6speed auto was started with RLX FWD in 2013. RLX FWD did not got 10 or 9 speed auto.

Send the power to the right fucking wheels, give it more than 300 hp and dump the ridiculous v6 from when Majofo was still allowed to go to playgrounds.

And we know the final version is just going to look like a more bland Accord with funky lights.

Basically a Camry V6
