Turbo or Not for next gen TSX?
 Date: October 03, 2006 12:14
 Submitted by:  JeffX
 Source: TOV News
 Credibility Rating: 6


I bumped into some folks at the Petit Lemans (Road Atlanta) over the weekend and I heard an interesting rumor regarding the drivetrain for the upcoming TSX replacement. In short, these people indicated that the prevailing rumors about the TSX getting the SH-AWD system are solid but the rumors of the turbocharged motor are off base, and in fact it would NOT be fitted with a turbocharged motor. Unfortunately there wasn't any clear indication of what the TSX will be getting under the hood and the source was unable to confirm any sort of timeframe for the car's introduction.

Speculatively speaking, unless Acura can miraculously keep the TSX's weight below 3200lbs or so, I would say it would be a gigantic mistake to offer an SH-AWD TSX with anything but a potent V6.

So this is just another tiny datapoint to add to the pile, but it's our duty to report any developments.
