If a pre-production model make it then, i wonder when they plan to launch production?
as usual, months after. that's when Acura should be releasing information, pictures, specifications, video, etc on the production model and the wave of reviews roll in.

During a mid-year speech being delivered in Japan, Honda Motor Co., Ltd. President and CEO Takanobu Ito stated that the production 2014 Acura RLX sedan will be revealed at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show in late November. The RLX Concept (pictured) first debuted at the New York Auto Show this past April.

The most significant part about the RLX package will be its use of Honda's new Sport Hybrid SH-AWD, which is essentially a through-the-road electric all-wheel-drive system. This new technology uses three individual motors, and combined output is said to be somewhere around 370 horsepower, the bulk of which comes from a 3.5-liter naturally aspirated V6. When the RLX Concept debuted, there was talk of a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, but we'll see if that actually flows through to production.

A less-powerful, 310-horsepower, front-wheel-drive version of the RLX is also said to be in the cards. Acura initially stated that the RLX would be capable of achieving at least 30 miles per gallon in both the city and highway driving cycles.

We'll have more details about the 2014 RLX closer to its debut. The LA Auto Show festivities kick off on November 28. Scroll down to read Acura's press release, containing the full notes from Ito's speech.

It's confirmed that Acura WILL be bringing a production model Acura RLX to the LA Auto Show! No pre-production BS :D

2 months left until we finally see what will be on our roads.

It's finally here ladies and gents!

In the following link you'll find a 15minute video of the RLX production model unveiling along with a ton of detailed information on the RLX....with probably the most information out about it right now!

Disappointed that I see the RLX has technology like this and....

Forward Collision Warning (FCW) uses a camera mounted in the upper portion of the windshield to detect vehicles ahead of the RLX and audibly and visually alert the driver when it determines a frontal collision with a detected vehicle is possible.
it doesn't have any pre-colission braking technology which would make it that much better.
