Just saw this in another forum....
http://www.autoevolution.com/news/honda-announces-10-15-and-20-liter-vtec-turbo-engines-71294.html


So I guess the 2.0 Turbo will replace the V6 in the next generation. I figured Honda would go down the same road as Kia, the other H, Ford..in not offering V6 power anymore...:paranoid:
Turbos are pretty reliable these days - no?

Probably easier to meet the MPG standards with a 4 cyl turbo versus making the V6 jump through hoops to get decent mileage.

This stuff blows my mind when you compare it to what we had to choose from back in the 80's when I started driving.

That would be interesting for honda since they have so little turbo engines being made in their line up... But in their turbo era F1 the were kicking some serious rear ends.

True....but will the turbo 4 be as smooth and linear as my V6? The Turbo in the first generation RDX was not very good. Burned a lot of fuel and other problems, so much that Honda went with the reliable 3.5V6 in the 2nd gen. But Honda is a good engine maker, so I am sure they will get the kinks out before they release a new engine. :thmsup:

Coming from a turbo car, I'd rather have the v6.

Honda Develops VTEC TURBO Direct Injection Gasoline Turbo Engine That Achieves Class-leading Output and Environmental Performance

Automobile - Japan - November 19, 2013

TOKYO, Japan, November 19, 2013 - Honda Motor Co., Ltd. today announced that it has newly developed VTEC TURBO, a direct injection gasoline turbo engine most suitable for small-to-medium-sized vehicles. The VTEC TURBO is a new addition to the Earth Dreams Technology, the next-generation powertrain technologies which achieve both the fun of driving and excellent fuel economy at a high level.

^ 1.5 L 4-cylinder direct injection gasoline turbo engine



^ 1.0 L 3-cylinder direct injection gasoline turbo engine​


With the application of variable valve motion technology such as Honda's unique VTEC along with direct injection turbocharging with highly-fluidized combustion and a thorough reduction in engine friction, this engine achieves class-leading output and environmental performance, while downsizing engine displacement.

Along with existing hybrid technology and diesel engine, the VTEC TURBO that features displacement size variation of 2.0 L, 1.5 L and 1.0 L will be adopted by Honda's future global models in accordance with characteristics of each model and needs of local customers.


Lineup of direct injection gasoline turbo engines

High output and high response were achieved by VTEC, a high-output turbocharger, direct injection technology, and a high-performance cooling system. This is an innovative high-performance engine that realizes the maximum output of more than 280 HP as well as high environmental performance that complies with the EURO 6, European emission standards which will become effective in 2014.​

These are next-generation compact engines that combine a base engine with a newly designed framework, the VTEC variable valve train system with thoroughly reduced friction, a turbocharger with a low moment of inertia and high responsiveness, and direct injection technology to achieve good balance between high output and torque, above those of conventional naturally-aspirated engines, along with excellent fuel economy.​

What kind of torque do you think that 2.0L will develop and will the torque curve be pretty flat?

I don't mind going with a turbo 4 on a future car I guess, as long as the reliability and performance is still there. But I've just owned my V6 for 3 days now, so I'll be enjoying it for many years to come and won't worry about the "next thing" for awhile.

It will probably peak 2500-3000rpm and drop off around 4-5k.

v6 equipped cars I feel that they're more refine, but in the same time honda just wants to keep up with the competition.

I'd take the V6 in a car like an accord as opposed to a turbo option any day. Power numbers aren't that important in a car that is zero % oriented to performance, to me. If i was shopping for a WRX, MR2, RX7 etc, diff story. Accord segment is for reliability, value, etc. If it ain't Saab or Volvo, I don't equate turbo with reliable longevity...

I wish I could delay my car hunt for another year or two... I have a feeling that Honda will offer the Accord with that 2.0L turbo, and I definitely want to see how it performs versus the J35 in the 2014 Accord.

ok so before everyone was complaining honda didn;t have any turbo in the lineup and once they have a turbo in the future lineup everyone is saying "id rather have a v6 then turbo". make up your minds people.

it would be sweet as hell if they had a 2.0 turbo for the LX/EX models and i guess since all the engines are 2.0 im assuming maybe the EXL accord will get the 280hp version.

According to articles ive been reading the new 2.0 Turbo engine will be used in the new Civic Type R overseas. no mention of U.S. anywhere.

False, I call a bluff. You would line up in a heartbeat to buy a new EARTH DREAMS fitted turbo in any new Honda especially a coupe that would crush a Hyundai Genesis coupe R Spec or how about a Wrx MR/Sti annihilator or how about GTR quicks anyone?..but I digress cause Honda would have me with a new CRX turbo. yeah, that got the juices flowing...we came around!

Yeah we won't see these engines in an accord for a long while, if ever. Looks like the 2.0T is aimed at the Civic SI to make it more competitive with its rival cars (ala GTI, Genesis coupe etc). A 2.0T engine is becoming the worlds standard engine as it can fit alot of applications and would make sense on an Accord due to its weight.

It's for the Civic Type-R which isn't slated for America. Don't bet on that ever making it into the Accord.
