Acura needs to make the Imperial! [View Article]    (Score: 1, Normal) 11-30-2006 10:22

I love Honda and Acura, but that Chrylser Imperal is the car I want to see Acura make. I currently have an Audi A8L, only because Acura does not make anything that compares. Even the new LS460L is an awesome car. My wife had to settle for an Escalade because the Pilot was not big enough for the family anymore. I love the RL, but it is almost the same size as the TL. I really hope Acura comes out with something to compete with the Bimmers and Mercedes of the world. I think Acura needs the be the Japanese Audi. Just make all cars AWD, and dump the FF. And please make a car to compete with the 7 series and the S Mercedes, with an 8 cylinder!

Acura needs to be Acura, not Audi. Take Audis advice and "Never Follow"! And by the way all Audis are FWD based excluding the R8.

Thanks, I am aware of the configuariton of Audis, my point is that if Acura is not going to get into the rwd market, then they should at least offer all cars with an AWD option. I love Acuras, but I no longer want to drive a FWD car, and the RL needs to be a larger car with an option for a V8 to compete with the A8s, S class and 7 series. These are the type of cars I am forced to shop because Acura does not offer anything in this class of auto. To restate my self, I LOVE Acuras, but they need to move thier flagship car up a couple of nothches. The RL is comparable to a 5 series or E class, not the flagship cars from Mercedes, Audi, and BMW or Lexus and Infinity for that matter.

Zeebee069 is right civicB18,

Acura needs a LWB V8 in the Model change in 2010 and they need to call it the Legend 4.5 SHL (Super Handling Long wheel base) I also love Acura, I drive one.

They need this car for their line up if they are going to be looked at as a contender in the Luxo market. Other wise they will always be looked at as a great starter car, with nowhere to go but Lexus. I hate to say that, but it's true.

This is a no brainer for Honda, they just need somebody to pull the lever at the top and run with it. I like the 2004 RL, it had class, ride and didn't look small, it even had a larger rear seat, it was a flag ship, without the flag.
