The 2012 Honda CR-V was spied without camo just days before its official unveiling at the LA AutoShow. Power train rumors include a new 201 horsepower 2.5 liter 4-cylinder with 177 ft-lb of torque as a optional engine while the existing 2.4 will the base model and drop from 180 horsepower to 175. The transmission will remain a 5-speed model like the current Civic.
Honda claims that its recent troubles with parts supply from a flooded Taiwan will not effect the CR-V launch as it has with the Civic.
