Agreed! but I am just going based on other manufacturers. If they are releasing the car last 2018 then yes it's too early and we have to be patient.

Unlikely a V6 is in the offing. Honda can spread the development costs of the 1.5L & 2.0L turbo 4s over a large base of product and with the amount of tech in cars today and pricing pressures, they need to save and take costs out wherever they can. The engine will be tuned a bit different but fundamentally the same as the Hondas.

I think there will a V6T coming. It just won't be for the RDX (think TLX Type-S, or an engine upgrade option for the RLX and MDX). Most semi-lux and lux manufacturers have a six-turbo option in their line up and if Acura ever wants to play in the same league, they're going to need something that's in between the 2.0T and the 3.5TT SH-SH-AWD in the NSX. A 2.0T SH-SH-AWD would be a viable alternative to a V6T as well.

Dude works for Honda/Acura.
Nexx has spoken to top heads at Acura. this we know.
what we dont know and what I suspect Nexx cant give; is the info we really want and need. release dates and exact power numbers.

so in the meantime; all we can do is wait and listen to Nexx give out half truths.
this is why speculation threads arent really fun....Sure it's fun to guess....but no one knows whats really going on behind the scenes

no one is asking you to post or even read in here, if speculation isn't fun for you.

By gobbs and gobbs, I'm hoping you mean the torque will be in excess of 300lb-ft!

The 2.0T in the Honda Avancier makes around 270/270 so Id think/hope that the newer RDX would improve on those numbers. That kind of tq down low in the powerband and the RDX could be quick.

The current version of the J35 is a dinosaur. But, the newer 3.5 GDI version used in the MDX and TLX would be a nice option to have. Why not offer 2 powerplants?

You *just* said above (post #326) that speculation threads aren't fun. And yet you're in here. I don't get it

Look, with 5 year life cycles, that leaves a whole lotta time for us to speculate. What else are we gonna do? Watch the grass grow?
