Sources: 2010 3.5 V6 TSX to be revealed in Chicago
 Date: February 06, 2009 12:20
 Submitted by:  JeffX
 Source: Various
 Credibility Rating: 7


Word on the street is that the 2010 Acura TSX V6 will be revealed during the media days at next week's 2009 Chicago Auto Show. Details are scarce, but from what we've been told, expect to see the V6 version of the TSX fitted with standard 18" wheels, restyled front end treatment, some unique interior bits, and apparently the same 3.5L 280hp V6 that is currently found on FWD 2009 TL models.

It's not clear yet whether or not SH-AWD will be offered with the TSX V6, nor is it clear whether or not it will be offered with a 6MT/LSD pairing (which would basically make it a followup to the 2008 TL Type-S 6MT).

In other news, somewhat related to the TSX, Honda announced their new high-performance version of the i-DTEC Diesel motor. Generating 180hp and a whopping 380nm (280lb-ft) of torque, this engine is offered in Accord Type-S models in either saloon or tourer body styles. For the time being, it is only being offered with a 6-speed manual transmission.

According to Honda, "The new engine retains its 2.2 litre capacity and gains its additional power with a revised turbo-charger, cylinder head and larger intercooler. Performance, fuel economy and emissions data will be available once homologation is completed."

This uprated version of the i-DTEC engine was headed for the TSX until the plans were shuffled.
