Yeah, a 3.0T with two electric engines would be a very sweet setup. A 450-500hp Acura that could possibly play with M/AMG/RS/F, but more affordable of course! Can a FWD-based drivetrain handle that...

Evolution would be really good actually. Sedan sales are way down, so realistically, the TLX is more than enough to carry sedan sales, since it already does so. I don't see Acura using the Legend...

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...

It's amazing how some drivers can be the nicest people in the world, but behind the wheel, they're can behave like a spawn from hell.

Yeah, the overhang looks really weird, but I'm wondering if it's just the angle. The MDX render has a much shorter overhang.

Yeah, I know. If Acura asked me which powertrain I would like to see on the future MDX Type-S, I would choose the 400HP SH-SH-AWD over the upcoming 3.0T.

It's too bad Honda didn't swallow its pride and use an Aisin 8-speed back in 2014. Would have spared them the grief and bad publicity.
