No keyless entry like the JDM Accord or no optional tech package for the TSX?

We'll probably see this feature for sure in the 4th generation TL.

That would be my guess. Right now Keyless Access is too "ingrained" with the RL right now. It is one of the features that separates it from the TL.

Now I would guess that the RDX will be the next Acura with Keyless Access as well as the next MDX. By the time those roll out the RL will have gained more features and maybe some styling changes to push it further away from the TL. Then the next TSX will get it (this is assuming that the TSX doesn't get it before the TL since it will be redesigned first).

I think most people would say that SH-AWD is the main thing that separates the RL from the TL!

To me the next generation (4) TL is really worth wating for. After reading an article in Acura Style about motorsports, I am more convinced now that Acura will not build a factory TL-Aspec. But for the 4the gen, they will go all out. Everyone else has upgraded, BMW, Audi, Lexus, and not with much fanfare. So expect Acura to do just one or two better than what everyone else has laid out on the table. I dont' think the Lexus IS350 will be a big hit because of price. The next big thing will be the redesign of the G35, which could coincide with the debut of the 4 gen TL. We can expect in the next TL SH-AWD, nice engines with CV and gobs of HP and Torque and some of the amenties in the RL like real-time navigation and keyless entry, for sure. And of course, a few surprises from Acura.

I wish Honda would just take out one of their sedans. I mean, they're all stepping on each other's toes and have no room to expand. The Accord can't go up like the Altima can. The TL can't go up because of the RL. The TSX can't go up because of the TL or down because of the Accord I4.

One of them has to go.

If it is horse power your talking about then sure. One of the glaring problems I see it the platform being used. It's a good one but no room to expand.

The RL should have more room the the TL. I don't care if the RL's room is the same or close to a 5, E, GS, or M it should have more back seat room, head room and front leg room the the TL. The TSX is fine as it is scaled down.

Now, there is hope with the possibility of a V8. With it maybe a new platform could be created. As it stands, the current GMSP cannot support a V8 so a new one has to come. To off set the cost then the TL and the rumored coupe can use the same platform. I even see the MDX being based off of such a platform as I'm sure the V8 will be offered.

With the RL being in V8 territory and still offering a V6 at a lower price point then the TL has room to grow. I see the TL pushing past 300hp with an engine shared with the next RL. This allows the TSX "wiggle" room to expand.

The Accord will surly expand and can sit at the 250 or 260 hp range and not bother the TL. The TSX is a diffrent beast so it really doesn't matter what the V6 Accord's hp #'s are.
