Jon Ikeda, the Acura Brand NA GM, said outright to MotorTrend that all future Acura models will get the Type-S treatment and that they're investing in the Type-S sub brand.
MT: Will all future models get a Type S?
JI: That's the plan. The Type S is the sports derivative of all of our lineup. We need to focus on them. The equity we want to put on Type S is huge. Yes, we want to put Type S on everything, starting with the TLX.
That roadmap was from June of 2020. A lot has changed since then. So idk how hopeful I should actually be but if there is a Type S and it has a manual transmission I will definitely be trading up for it.
