    Default 2021 Acura TLX

    I was watching this guy trying to catch some sort of "Live stream" unveiling
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E5hldThUydc

    Underwhelming "event" along with nothing outstanding.
    They took the vag seats and pretty much entire cockpit out of the RDX... Not sure how they are marketing this as "nothing like anything else in the lineup"

    Here's the video and newroom

    No Type-S HP numbers but it does look good!

    I'm sure they will.... in the RDX-S. Pretty sure they've already stated RDX-S is coming eventually.

    It's FINALLY getting a decent powertrain, have to give them props for that. There are still a few hold outs in the segment using boring N/A family sedan V6's (looking at you, Lexus).

    Now...if only they would put the 2.0T from the CTR / Accord into the ILX with SH-AWD, that would be the sweet spot IMO.

    Good for them for still running with the sedan idea (So many companies have ditched the focus completely), and it really seems like the first leap forward in the TL line since the 04 TL that came out. I imagine that 3L Turbo will be in the mid-3's HP wise (after all even their 2.0T is getting in the high 200's).

    I still have a soft spot for the brand, and want it to do well. The TLX was bland AF, although a very competent vehicle.

    The car looks great, and hopefully they do something distinctive with the colors to make it stand out. It might have a chance at success considering Lexus has been sleeping at the wheel with the IS, Infiniti is pretty much doomed... but the competition is different now, the G70 will be tough to topple.

    Agreed, I am guessing the fear that it will eat into the Accord/TLX value proposition. Although... I am sure it would be a net positive overall.

    Weird, I can't see that it looks much different than the current one.

    Chances are it will probably fill the price range for G70s.

    And looks like it's now wider and bigger, RLX size.

    The front suspension is interesting. The interior bit isn't as fluid as RDX. RDX based on different platform won't be as good even if it gets TTV6.

    Detuned CTR engine with awd for 45k?

    That’s not bad. I’m guessing it’ll be around 45k, maybe 40?! That would be amazing.

    Type S will be 60ish?

    That is indeed sweet!

    Lots bigger too, so more like E class size, and it will be a bargain as usual .. Lexus should wake up with the next IS ...

    Wow ... I wonder who will buy those Hyundai G80 (or 70?)
    The Original !

    Hmm 3L turbo.. for the Type S.
    I assume ~350 hp / 350 lb-ft of torque? That's pretty sick for a Honda sedan.

    It's a very good looking car. I wish it wasn't so big though. Nice to see Acura trying at least.

    Car and Driver says the Type-S will be 350hp. This excites me big time. I'm a honda/acura fanboy, and if I don't get a wagon next, I could definitely see this replacing my S4. Is it actually that big of a car?

    Bring on the RDX type-S and I'll replace my wife's RDX with one of those in a couple years.

    All in all, very happy they are bringing back the type-s (and it doesn't really appear to suck).

    Remember they shrunk it when it went from TL to TLX. This is just a return to normal I think.

    Starting at low 40s in Canada. Since it is starting mid 30s in US which is only $2K more but SHAWD is standard now.

    Well now.. that isn’t half bad is it?

    In a couple years it might dip into the 30s with an incentive. Why buy a touring accord? It almost makes no sense to even consider a Honda over a base-ish TL.

    Cool.

    Agreed! The blue is nice as well.

    That interior is a beauty! Type S V6 mmmm Acura > Lexus in this case.

    This will be a popular car!

    The profile/proportions of this car are so awesome. Dash/axle ratio is

    Wow.
    Acura nailed it on this one. If the type S is in the ~350hp range this thing will be a ton of fun.
