Some "MSX" tidbits through the vendor grapevine

We have received a bit of info on Acura's new sport crossover today. This information has reportedly been relayed to vendors who are supplying components for the project. At the moment we cannot ascertain how legitimate the information is, so take it at face value for now.

The information confirms that the "MSX" (this is what these folks are calling it, not sure if that's what it really will be called) will be launched at the upcoming New York International Auto Show. Also indicated is a production start date of March 30, 2009 at the Alliston, Ontario plant. Supposedly Acura was initially asking for pricing quotes based upon an annual production run of around 100,000 units, but they will actually be building them at a rate of around 80 per day (20,000/year). These sources indicate that the "MSX" will be priced "well above the MDX". As has been long suspected, the only thing currently on the table for the powertrain is a V6 with "over 300hp" (that sounds like another 3.7L V6 to me).

The onsale date has tentatively been set for late May/early June.

UPDATE: In case you missed it in the comments below, TOV member "Siegen" has given us permission to display this composite image he created of the MSX.
