    Acura Planing Product Blitz

      Do you miss the ZDX? If so, there might be hope for you. 

    Pebble Beach could mark the debut of a nearly production-ready version of the Acura Precision concept. The concept debuted at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show and previewed Acura's Precision Crafted Performance design theme first seen in production on the 2019 Acura RDX.  While there are (hopeful?) rumors that the 4-door coupe will wear the name Legend, there is not enough evidence to support them. What that means for Acura's aging RLX sedan is anyone's guess. 

    Also coming is an updated Acura TLX with a Type-S version, a new Acura MDX, and rumor has it even the ZDX may be making a return.  All of these could debut over the next 12 to 18 months, but Pebble Beach is in August, so we'll just have to sit tight until then.

    Rebadged Hondas, yawn.  What we want is more lemmings to jump off the crossover coupe cliff.  Porsche has one coming, Acura needs to get in there.

    Acura was arguably one of the first. 

    What we really need are more crossover sedans.

    I am holding out for double decker sedans or crossovers with 2 levels of seating.  Even better if you can drive from the 2nd level for more luxurious views of the road.  That will be the next body style when people start hating on mom’s crossover and grandpa’s sedan and want something new.

    They've canceled the Airbus A380 you know... double-decker is already passé. 

    Or maybe you're thinking Megabus

    No Mommy Mobile. I am looking for a modern Typhoon, Trailblazer SS EV style. Not more of the drag my ass on low riding cars that get lost in the deluge of coupe style blandness.

    LOL, "coupe style blandness".  We are in the middle of the sea of vanilla crossovers, they are ALL family appliances.  Any coupe or sedan with some style will really stand out.  Whatever your preference of course, just don't pretend that crossovers are exciting unless you get a 100k pumped up Grand Cherokee or X5 or Porsche.

    This.  There aren't many exciting looking crossovers out there.  Plenty of nice ones, but not many exciting ones.

    I totally get what your saying as both cars and CUV's have become very bland and that is why I clearly state the two SUVs that I did as they stood out from the crowd. We really need some exciting changes.

    Get on your General boys to do this. Their CUV lineup is as bland as anybody else's. No CUV as a high performance street version and no CUV has a high performance off-road version.

    Totally agree with you. With the Supercharged motor in the Corvette, they so could build an awesome performance line of SUV/CUVs.

    They could do the off-road thing too. Those don't need some monster motor crammed in there.

    The concept looks beautiful, but how many times have we heard Acura is going for a new look, new this, new that?  I think what will really help their case is to add more letters.  I personally would love to tell people I have an TLX with SH-AWD Type-S... hell, throw the whole keyboard on the bumper.

    • in two days, THREE year VANIVERSARY! New cars, buy or lease, are pretty unobtainable nowadays.  Sales wanted me to reup the lease for 300 more bucks /mo.  MSRP's through the roof, for the same thing. And weirdly, there is not much for color availability for a replacement, in other than black and white these days.  No can do.  Took advantage of the really cheap buyout price and now are owners. Sitting about 29,000 miles.  Using as a daily driver 2 days a week now, and the Regal 3 days a week. Still enjoying this ride and its been knock on wood, no issues. Last fall I bought OEM wheels for cheap for winter rubber... but never did get the tires this year as winter has been so mild and without snow.  But next winter I'll be able to get some X-Ice or Blizzaks. Love the comfortable seats.  And the higher ride height is a nice welcome contrast vs the Regal.  The Harmon Kardon sound is really good.  Far better than the junk Bose (redundant term, I know) in the Regal. Pacifica sales were really good last year, and this vehicle will remain in the Chrysler lineup for the foreseeable future.  In fact, there is a major refresh now coming out in 2025 or 2026.  I can't wait to see what it may be.  Some rumor renderings look good, some others don't.   Part of the reason for the buyout was GM hasn't gotten their new Acadia and Traverse out yet.  Painfully slow getting them to market!  And the Enclave too!  3 times now and technically this is the 4th time we could have looked to get into the GM three row products.  The Pacific is just easy to drive and own.  Rides great, quiet.  May look to replace the TourX one of these days when GM finally gets those new 3 rows to the market. Our last three vacations, we've rented Pacificas also.  The front drivers pull amazing highway mpg when your doing interstate driving. Have still had interest in the plug in version.....I think they still have teething issues with them, but also..they are heavy due to the battery and you lose stow n Go as well as all wheel drive.  I was interested in test driving a Sienna hybrid, but you can never find one on a lot.  Plus, the Sienna interior is ghastly.  
    • Recent oil change again. Sitting at about 43,000 miles now. The dealership has a great car wash!  
    • Interesting another one bites the dust.
