Will the next-gen TLX bring back double wishbones? Or a Plugin Hybrid model?

It's been a busy week for us, starting with our first drive of the 2019 Honda Insight (look for those impressions next week). We're still on the road but we received some information from long time TOV member ‘Civicb18’. He obtained some sort of document that appears to be an internal graphic depicting a next-generation product. There are no markings identifying Acura or even Honda but there are enough clues to conclude that it is related to a future Acura product.

While the graphic is full of information, it does not directly disclose which exact product is being described, but according to the source who provided the information to ‘Civicb18’, it is supposedly the next generation TLX architecture. The graphic uses the code ‘PF3e’ to label the architecture.

One of the key items referenced on the graphic is a double wishbone suspension for the front subframe. Interestingly there is also some reference to widening the front subframe ‘for EAWD Protect’, whatever that could mean.

The document also seems to reference the following powertrains:
  • 2.0T + 10AT
  • 2.0T + 10AT + SH-AWD
  • another engine (most likely the new V6 Turbo) + 10AT + SH-AWD
  • and for the MMC it references what appears to be a plug-in hybrid offering. This one appears to offer a 2.0T and some new transmission that's referenced as 10HMT.


Again, we cannot be 100% certain that this document is legitimate or even accurate, but if it is legitimate, from what we can see it does appear to offer some pretty significant clues concerning the next generation Acura TLX.
