Acura News: Acura ILX Could Get 2.0L Turbo Engine, But Not Till Next Time

Acura is in the midsts of giving their lineup a bit of excitement once again. With such models as the new TLX and refreshed ILX, it seems Acura is figuring out how to make cars that appear to be fun. There could be more excitement on the way. Honda is currently readying a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine that will go into a number of their own vehicles. This has caused talk of whether or not Acura will use it as well. Car and Driver decided to ask Acura product planner Gary Robinson if the 2.0L turbo engine could go into the ILX.

“Acura is always going to get the best engines Honda makes,” he said. And the cars in which they will be found “will always be more powerful” than their Honda counterparts. “Obviously, a 2.0-liter turbo is more of a must-have in the luxury world than it is in the mainstream world, so . . ." said Robinson.

Now before you start dreaming of a turbocharged ILX, Robinson explained that the current ILX would require a lot of re-engineering to allow for the turbocharged engine to fit. Most likely it will come when the ILX is redesigned, expected in 2018 or 2019.
