Acura RL

So motor trend and C&D have the Acura TSX in their 10 best. Go TSX!  Big thumbs up

No, I suppose not too surprising. But a few questions on the list itself as posted (I haven't seen the publication yet);

Chrysler 300C/300C Hemi? Only the 300C is a Hemi (badged Hemi C); the V6 Chyslers are dubbed 300s, either 300 (base), or 300 Limited and 300 Touring (uplevels).

Only the Mustang GT, and not the entire Mustang line?

I guess any new Corvette will always make the list. Wanna bet a beer that Corvette ZO6 gets it again for 2006 (as it will be a substantially specific product)?

Well, as I've said before, I personally put reserved credence into mag awards but do in fact value C&D's opinions more than, say, Motor Trend's for USA pubs. Regards...Jack

I have always thought the same thing. They seem to have a more unbiased opinion and state things exactly how they are. I don't beleive the same is true with Motor Trend.

The Mustang GT won for best muscle car--the new V6 Mustang is lackluster at best--considering the sport coupe competition that also offer V6s (i.e. Accord Coupe w/ 240HP) its not stellar.
