Probably the TLX. Acura probably wants to get their bread and butter vehicles all redesigned first - RDX, MDX and to a lesser extent, TLX. RLX and ILX sales are woefully LOL so I imagine they won't...

More than likely, the next TLX will get the exact powertrain from the RDX. Having test driven the RDX, I can say the transmission is much better. Shifts are quick although I think Acura still needs...

WoodyB mentioned his brother's dealer just received some 2020s on another thread. The biggest change is the color white is being replaced by another color white. :D

If Acura decides to keep the A-Spec as a separate trim level, I want the adaptive dampers included. The sportiest looking of the trims should have got this to begin with.

The RLX version of the J35 make 310 HP & 272 lb-ft so Acura doesn't even need to do anything other than to plop that engine into the PMC TLX. But yeah, I agree that they missed an opportunity to do...

If the Type-S does get an electric motor, my bet is on a 48V mild hybrid. Done correctly, this should all but eliminate turbo lag as the electric motor helps get the car moving while boost is...

This marketing stunt is basically Acura's way of telling us there will be nothing exciting this year for Acura products. RDX will be carrying the freshness of the brand on its own for awhile longer.
