When you visit a Capital Region Honda Dealer for a new mid-size sedan, we’re sure you’re going to be taking a look at the 2015 Honda Accord V6. This high-performance alternative to the standard four-cylinder Accord sets things on a whole different level than the majority of other mid-size sedans, and all without compromising on fuel economy.
You can find the V6 engine on the Accord EX-L V6 Coupe and Sedan as well as the Accord Touring Sedan. Let’s take a closer look.
What’s Under the Hood?
The Accord EX-L V6 and Touring models come with a 3.5L V6 engine under the hood, and Honda has optimized it for both power and fuel efficiency:
- The 3.5L V6 engine is rated at 278 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque.
- Despite the power boost, the V6 engine is remarkably efficient, with 2015 Accord EX-L V6 models with six-speed automatic transmission earning an EPA-estimated 34 highway and 21 city mpg.*
This powertrain is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission that gives you plenty of control over all of that power without forcing you to know how to drive stick—of course, if you prefer a manual transmission, you can get it on the EX-L V6 Coupe.
How is it possible for a six-cylinder engine to have such a high fuel economy despite its power output? The short answer is “Honda engineering,” but the long answer is just a bit longer: variable cylinder management. Your engine can shut down 2 or even 3 of its cylinders while coasting to conserve fuel, letting it kick all six cylinders into action when you need to put the pedal to the floor.
Don’t forget that each of the Accord V6 models is toward the top of the line, with each trim featuring leather upholstery, heated front seating, and some of the latest in auto tech.
