Should be interesting to see the style and I wonder since they have also said they would be doing ice/hybrid/ev, what the powertrain lineup will be.

Type S...essentially the way to intro the new TLX, with blacked out windows and huge wheels, to the auto show crowd.

6 months later. "Wait, so it's an Accord with AWD again? Okay. Thanks."

I saw concept images of this 2+ years ago at an Acura conference. Essentually A Spec look, with bigger exhaust tips, etc. and the more recent RDX like styling overall. No shifter, weird massage me touch pad, etc. Soon, most Acura's will be variations of the RDX design, same FWD based platforms.

But, more power.

Look in the Carburetor of a vintage American Muscle car...you will probably find them.
