Hi everyone,

I've liked the Acura ILX since it first came out and I almost purchased one in January but I held off hoping that the 201HP engine would be offered in automatic or at least with the Tech Package for 2014. I took one for a test drive last weekend and I really like the car but the 150 HP engine just felt so sluggish between 40 - 60 MPH. I passed on the TSX because it Tech Package is now outdated because of the ILX. For you owners out there with the 150HP engine, do you noticed the lack of power or does it suit you just fine? I'm not trying to race or even put the pedal to the floor, but I am concerned about going uphill and freeway driving. Any insights would be helpful.

Thanks

Honestly. If acura was going to release a 2.4 automatic we'd hear about it probably a year before it debuts. Even then it'll take another year to mass market.
Maybe we'll see a 2.4 automatic with the mid generation make over if the ILX even sees one. Id be willing to bet the ILX serves a short term like the RSX did.

Exactly, these big changes take time and if they actually plan on making it a reality, we hear about it.
