Not as strange as you might think. The Highlander vs. the RX300 same engine, bigger cargo area (OK, the identical V6 is an optional engine on the Highlander but most people get it that way).gokings55 said:Unless Acura/Honda decides to follow in the steps of Nissan (i.e. making the Altima more desirable than the Maxima- IMHO) I would not think Honda/Acura would put the exact same engine in the Honda version, as well as make it bigger, thereby making it possibly more attractive than its more expensive counterpart (MDX). But...stranger things have happened.
Ahh, another teaser from C&J01MDX!C&J01MDX said:Just my opintion
The honda version will get the same engine as the odyssey
The honda version will receive a few goodies that the mdx doesn't have(dvd)....but the mdx will be superior for 03 model.
Detroit show is second week of January.go2ron said:Dear C&J01MDX,
Do you think production will start in april? Honda was planning to produce it in the new factory (southern US). When is the Detroit show? Any web sights known for more info?
I wouldn't. I already have an 'X. But, If it is larger and is 5-7k cheaper, and has the same drivetrain(engine, chassis, tranny) then it would be something to consider. In other words, if you are already waiting for a '02MDX until april or may, then u might as well wait and check out the Honda SUV.TDLoftin said:Why would you choose the Honda over the Acura?
