Many were speculating they would drop the award winning J-series in favor of a all 4 cylinder line up and....they did. A 1.5 turbo will now be the base engine with a Type R derived 2.0 as the top level option. Also, a 10 speed auto will be offered and they are keeping the 6 speed manual! Good on Honda for that!

Too bad. I love the J-series in my TL type S. It really scoots, and it gets great fuel economy.

By the way, you'd do the readers a favor by providing a link. I'll help you out

Car scoop also released their rendition of the 10th gen Accord. It's pretty attractive in my opinion. If you go back and look at the Camry they drew up, it's extremely accurate.

This would be the 1.5 TGDI that's in the Civic and CRV? Fuel dilution coming to Accords. Honda is hanging their hat on that engine.

Personally I don't like the industry's trend towards turbocharged engines, especially in the case of the Accord.

I understand the movement, better efficiency while allowing to still have power on tap when needed. My main concern is long term reliability.

Is there evidence that this "issue" s wide spread on the 1.5T? I know there is one member on here (might be you) that talks about it quite frequently, and If I remember correctly there was a UOA showing the dilution but wear numbers were great.

Yes, issue is real. I am experiencing it as well as many others. Unfortunately 95% of Civic 1.5T don't even check their oil in between the oil changes (when MM tells to do so), that's why we don't hear about it much. Since this is a new engine who knows how long will it last with fuel dilution problem. I'm 1500mi after recent change with top tier synthetic and level seems to start rising again:(

2.0T 6MT and a low price would be tempting to trade up to.

That was due to CAFE which was going to get tougher and tougher. Things might get rolled back under Trump but it takes years to design a car so it'd be a few years if things ever roll back. The old saying about no replacement for displacement is still true. I love a V6. Mercedes did the same thing with their E class, got rid of the V6 and just had a turbo 4 in 2017. You really had to step and pay a lot more if you wanted a V6 either the E43 or E63.

Let's see how this affects sales against the new Camry, which is keeping the V6 popcorn

Not what I wanted to hear. Was hoping to hang on to my daily driver for a few more years then pick up a new Accord with the 2.4L. Looks like I have a decision to make pretty soon. smirk

1.5L Turbo and a 10 speed automatic transmission?

There's another car I can check off on the list of one I will never own.

No kidding. Their 5 speed auto was a disaster, can't imagine what the 10 speed will be like! LOL add a tiny turbo engine that fills the crankcase up with fuel and it sounds like a nightmare of a powertrain.
