The Honda Accord V6 Will Die For 2018
Automotive News reports that for 2018, Honda will offer an all-new Accord with two turbocharged inline-fours, a 1.5-liter and a 2.0-liter. The smaller of the two is the same, excellent unit found in the Civic and CR-V and replaces the outgoing Accord's naturally aspirated 2.4-liter four-cylinder. In the new Civic Si, this engine produces 206 hp, but it's unclear how much it'll make in the Accord. The 2.0-liter four-cylinder is similar to the engine used in the new Civic Type R, which produces 306 hp.
Both engines can be paired with a six-speed manual transmission, and as for automatics, the 1.5-liter is mated with a CVT, while the 2.0-liter gets a 10-speed unit. Honda also said today that it plans on updating the Accord Hybrid, but it didn't announce specs.
The 2018 Accord will ride on the new platform that underpins the Civic and CR-V, and will adopt some of the Civic's fastback sedan styling. We should learn more about the car in the coming weeks. Read more about the Honda Accord V6...
