In an email sent out to dealers today, Honda has revealed that a 4-cylinder Accord CrossTour model is on its way. The memo says it will be released "mid-summer" but we have been told that it might be much later in the year. Also mentioned in the memo is a "late April" release date for the 2012 Civic (which we have known for some time), a mention of the upcoming 2012 CR-V FMC, and also a mention of the Pilot's MMC.
There was no other information contained within the email sent out by Honda BUT we have learned separately that the CrossTour 4-cylinder model would most likely only be offered in the lower trim levels and FWD initially. We have also heard that the all-new CR-V will come with an all-new 4-cylinder engine, and it would likely be larger than 2.4L - perhaps displacing as much as 2.6 or even 2.7L.
