Acura Debuts 2010 Acura TSX with 280hp V6

Full article

For 2010, Acura will offer a V6 trim level on its TSX. Since its introduction in 2004, the TSX has only been available with a 2.4L engine. Rumors of a V6 model sprung up almost immediately following the introduction of the 2009 model, and it was made clear that there was indeed room for a V6 under the hood. Well now it's official, the 2010 TSX will have the option of a 280hp V6, the same engine as seen in the base model TL. Along with that, the V6 model will feature 18 inch wheels and improved suspension tuning. The only transmission option, at least for 2010, will be the 5-speed automatic. No rumors yet as to the availability of a 6-speed manual (with LSD) or SH-AWD. At this point I think it is up to consumer demand and the economy, as to whether Acura will make those trims available.

Wow, that's some pretty good grunt. I wonder if the handling will be screwed up because of the extra weight up front.

It will probably appeal to buyers of the previous TL who are turned off by the price and ugliness of the new one. The new TSX and the old TL are comparable in interior room.
