Acura's 300hp Club: Joined by 2007 TL Type-S and 2007 MDX?
 Date: May 01, 2006 16:01
 Submitted by:  JeffX
 Source: TOV News
 Credibility Rating: 7


To follow up on our Spring Cleaning brief we've received a few more (unconfirmed) tidbits on the TL and MDX.

First of all, the TL's upcoming Type-S variant is said to be getting a bump up to around 290hp. As we've mentioned, it will do its best to deliver that through the front wheels. Supposedly the suspension geometry remains largely unchanged, so that doesn't bode well for squelching the complaints of torque steer. We remind you that this information is still in the rumor phase at this point, so we'll have to try to dig up more on it. Inside the car, the interior is said to be receiving some minor freshening including a restyled shifter and revised gauges. On the exterior, the fog lights are said be changed but it's not clear what that means. This is purely speculative on my part, but perhaps this means that they will be relocated from the headlamp assembly down into the lower bumper? The person who sent this information to us mentioned that the wheels "suspiciously resemble Nissan's Altima SE-R (wheels)". Again with the speculation, I would expect that the Type-S will arrive in showrooms wearing at least 18" wheels.

As for the MDX, the only real development in terms of information is that the motor is said to generate 300hp from its 3.5L displacement. Still no word on a 6AT, but we can always hope. Since the RDX will be shipping with 18" wheels, could the MDX see Honda's first factory fitment of 19" (or larger) wheels? We should know fairly soon...
