Car and Driver's Future Column Provides 2005 RL Info
 Date: October 15, 2003 22:30
 Submitted by:  Anonymous
 Source: Car and Driver "Future Product Intelligence Database"
 Credibility Rating: 6


Car and Driver's new database on upcoming model changes lists the following for the 2005 (or 2004.5 as it states) RL:

"The flagship sedan will be redesigned with more expressive styling and a 300-hp 3.8-liter V-6. Remains FWD, with possible all-wheel-drive and hybrid drivetrain. on-sale spring 04."

They also hint that the 3.8L engine may be placed in updates of the Odyssey and MDX (the horsepower in those, of course, is still unknown).
