American Honda Reports June 2014 Sales

07/01/2014 – TORRANCE, Calif.

  • Honda Civic and Accord post sales of more than 32,000 each in June for increases of 8.7 and 2.1 percent respectively

  • Total Acura truck sales were up 6.1 percent in June
  • Acura MDX claims best-ever 6-month sales performance with an increase of 68.4 percent

American Honda Motor Co., Inc. today reported June 2014 Honda and Acura vehicle sales of 129,023 units. The Honda division posted sales of 117,817 units in June while Acura sold 11,206 units in the same period. Year-to-date American Honda sales reached 739,436 units.

Overall Acura sales continue to reflect the decreasing supply of TL and TSX models as the company prepares for launch of the 2015 TLX line of luxury performance sedans later this summer. With an unprecedented first half of the year, MDX and RDX continue to sell at a near record pace, pushing Acura truck sales up 6.1 percent for the month.

  • Acura truck sales rise 6.1 percent in June
  • MDX June sales rose 27.7 percent on sales of 4,890 units
  • Posting its best-ever six-month sales performance, the Acura MDX led the division with sales of 30,644 units, an increase 68.4 percent over last year

“The MDX and RDX had a stellar first half of the year, certainly a good indicator that the Acura brand is moving in a strong direction,” said Mike Accavitti, Acura division senior vice president and general manager. “While we expected the reduced supply of sedans to impact sales this summer, the upcoming launch of the all-new 2015 TLX lineup heralds a new era for the Acura brand.”

2014 Acura MDX Road Trip: Alberta’s Rockies Part 1

Posted by  on June 26th, 2014 1 comment

2014 Acura MDX - Two Jack Lake, Banff National Park

Taking the Scenic Route Through Alberta’s Rockies

Anyone who has spent some time in the province of Alberta, Canada will likely have travelled between its two largest cities, Edmonton and Calgary. The road most travelled is Highway 2, at under three hours it’s the most direct route if you want to quickly get from one city to the other.

After picking up a 2014 Acura MDX loaner from Acura Canada’s Calgary office one June morning, I hopped onto Highway 2 towards Edmonton, only to exit off after just a few minutes. I had already decided weeks beforehand that I wouldn’t be taking Highway 2 North. I was Westbound, towards the majestic Rocky Mountains of Alberta. This detour would eventually lead me to Edmonton, but not before experiencing a road trip through one of the most scenic drives in in the world: Banff to Jasper via Highway 93, also known as the Icefields Parkway.

Rendered: 2016 Acura ILX

2016 Acura ILX Rendering

Here’s another take on a refreshed ILX exterior from graphic artist Hondatalover. The render incorporates Acura’s Jewel Eye headlights and an updated, more aggressive front bumper. Overall I think these changes work really well for the ILX. We expect both exterior and powertrain changes for the 2016 mid-cycle model change. Click here for a 900×450 image.
