Has anyone else read about Honda dropping the V-6 in the Accord for 2018? It sounds as though the new Accord will receive a de-tuned version of the Type R motor instead. Actual performance numbers haven't been released as yet, but I'd expect to see about 250hp from this. Honda has released a nice little video outlining the technology in the 2.0L turbo, which isn't quite the same as what's up with our 1.5L's, but it isn't terribly far off:


Sadly, we don't get the VTEC, just the VTC to allow for scavenging for improved low end torque.
