    Rumorpile: Next Honda Civic Si Could Use A Detuned Version of Civic Type R's Engine


    • Next Civic Si could be getting some bits from the Type R

    While everyone has been wiping the drool from their lips with the announcement of the Civic Type R coming the U.S. that will be arriving in 2017, there is still the Civic Si coming around the corner that should whet our appetites when it arrives sometime in 2016.

     

    The folks at CivicX Forums got their hands on some intriguing info on Civic Si. According to a source, the Si will use a detuned version of the turbocharged 2.0L found in the Civic Type R. Power is expected to be around 220 to 230 horsepower. A six-speed manual will be the sole transmission choice. It is expected that the Si will share a number of parts with the Type R as well.

    Once a Honda fan, always a Honda fan.

    I had an Accord from the late 80's that I wish I kept a lot longer.  

     

    Honda's recent styling seems to be gaining traction with me.

    Are you sure, because the new Type R appears it will impress.  I am guessing about 320hp.  So a de-tuned version of that 2.0L should do nicely too.

    I just think that this demographic needs extreme.

     

    Another strong point with the Honda is excellent interior quality, fit  and finish.

    I think the Focus RS falls a bit short in that department.

    If this is one of the few segments that preserves a its tradition of a standard transmission, and if using bold and controversial design elements is something that attracts a lot of attention to the segment.

     

    Then I'm all for it.

     

    The thing is, like how conventional vehicles are starting to look like the production-near concept cars for years ago..

     

    These kind of cars are starting to admirably convince you they are hot wheels cars. And they are hot wheels.

     

    And whenever I think of hot wheels (from my own childhood)... I think of Doritos and Mountain Dew. Anyone with fond memories of any of those three products as a young professional adult today, is the buyer these manufacturers are targeting. I think.

    GM just has to give us a 2.0t option for the Cruze, a performance suspension and skip too many cosmetic changes while keeping the price in check and I'd be happy. Keep the boy racers from wanting to race me. The new Civic does make the ILX seem even more pointless.

    I would prefer several levels.  

    Base

    Sleeper

    Gonzo

     

     

    Some do want a sleeper minus the extreme-ness.

      Continuing to buck the industry trend, Honda car sales helped push the brand to a new November record.

"Considering the continued consumer appetite for trucks and SUVs, we're excited to see Honda cars resonate so well with our customers," said Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of the Honda Division. "This is especially gratifying considering the strength of our light truck lineup, as we continue to hit on all cylinders with individual retail buyers."

Reaching another milestone, the custom-crafted NSX supercar has topped 200 customer deliveries since sales commenced in May. "Strong sales of the new Acura MDX demonstrate that our design direction and focus on performance is the right path for the Acura brand," said Jon Ikeda, vice president and general manager of the Acura division. "With the NSX and the MDX leading the way, we will take our entire lineup toward Acura's Precision Crafted Performance DNA."

      Plans for a flagship Jeep may have been trashed. Autoline Daily reported yesterday that Fiat Chrysler Automobiles have cancelled plans for the Grand Wagoneer that was due for the 2019 model. Citing information from industry planning company Auto Forecast Solutions, Autoline Daily says the company cannot stretch out the platform that underpins the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango for a model that would be in a higher segment. 
      Autoline Daily goes on to say that work may continue on a flagship model for Jeep, but use the platform that underpins the Ram 1500 pickup.
      Rumors of the Grand Wagoneer have been floating around for a couple of years and it only recently confirmed by Jeep CEO Mike Manley. Last month, we got a possible preview as to what Grand Wagoneer's front end could look like.
