What are the engine options for the Acura RLX? The ILX has a 2.0L and a 2.4L. If they are thinking about replacing the Acura RL it's going to have to be a V6. Any hope of a hybrid V6 motor from the accord and TL with upped horsepower? What about the supercharged V6 concept from Honda?

I was reading something that there will be 310hp one and a 370hp one? I'm guessing one hybrid and one normal?

Supercharged V6 would be nice but they also need to be "green" I think a turbo would be better, they seem to work well with keeping MPG's at a respectable level.

I think Acura should either do a single turbo for lower RPM's just to get the RLX up to speed faster, or sequential turbo's if they really want to make this a performance beast!

BMW did it with their 335i and it turned out to be amazing, I don't see why Acura can't be different for once and do this.

The Acura RLX is the current flagship sedan by Honda's Acura brand, which debuted at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show as a 2014 model. The RLX replaces the outgoing Acura RL. The model will offer an improved all-wheel steering system and an upgraded all-wheel drive system, in a desire to compete in the market with the best German and Japanese luxury cars.
