    2018 Honda Accord Kills the V6, Adds Type R Engine



    The 10th generation of Honda’s venerable Accord will debut for 2018 without a V6 engine option.

    A few months later to the all-new midsize party than the next-generation 2018 Toyota Camry, the new Accord will not follow the Camry’s entrenched path of providing customers with a base four-cylinder and a V6 upgrade.

    Continue to trend towards small turbo engines replacing larger displacement NA engines. Accord having the same engine as Civic so the Accord is now just a plus sized Civic.

    Yeah it is getting confusing just have to wait to see how this plays out, one thing for sure Honda is definitely going in a different direction from what they have in the past and putting all their eggs into one basket

    from the article

    In the all-new Accord that Honda says will debut later this year, the basic 1.5T — a non-VTEC powerplant — will be linked to either the continuously variable transmission or a six-speed manual. The 2.0T, on the other hand, will be offered with both a 10-speed automatic or a six-speed manual.

    Honda is really dropping the ball, the New Toyota Camry's new DOHC V6 is gonna be pretty nice.
