VTEC Turbo Engines Coming in 2015

Honda to begin production at Anna, Ohio, plant later this year

Jan 14, 2015

While everyone at the 2015 North American International Auto Show was gettin' all giddy about the sports cars introduced in Detroit this year - in particular that new Acura NSX - another bit of performance news out of Camp Honda slipped past most. It seems before the year is out the Big H will begin manufacturing VTEC turbo motors, including the 2.0-liter mill that will sit in the next Civic Type R (CTR).

Production of the new boosted motivators will begin later this year at Honda's Anna, Ohio, plant, the largest automobile engine plant in the automaker's global production network. It's investing $340 million in the facility to produce VTEC turbo four-cylinder engines using domestic and globally sourced parts, which includes the addition of a third assembly line.

Honda VTEC TURBO Engines Announced

So the puzzle of what the next CTR will offer is one piece closer to being complete. We know the 2.0L VTEC turbo inline-4 will spin to at least 7,000 and make around 275 horsepower. We know the FWD hatchback will sport adaptive suspension and some minor aero. And we know a production version of the car will likely be introduced this year - although ironically it may not be sold in the US (ironic because the motor is US built).

The only things missing are exact dates when everyone can get their eyes and hands on the new machine. Standby for more from Honda.
