I'm more interested in the Tech upgrade.

I wonder what kind of "more tech" they are adding. Sport Hybrid maybe?

I'm going to guess LCD TFT screen similar to what is used in the new generation Honda vehicles, as well as an upgraded infotainment system. Engines will be revised so they are more efficient and powerful. 9 speed ZF will continue to be standard on the V6 SH-AWD while the 10 speed automatic will be an option on the Elite trim, just like in the new Honda Odyssey. I'm a bit hesitant on saying the suspension tuning will be revised, but it's possible considering how heavy the car currently feels in the corners.

Hopefully the TLX gets a base 1.5L inline 4 turbo, the same one which is used in the Honda Civic Si or even Honda CR-V.

There will definitely not be a Sport Hybrid.

This is what I'm hoping for. Although the 2018 Odyssey may have the latest/greatest system, any improvement would be better (CarPlay/Android Auto?).

Don't expect any engine/Transmission changes.

Front/Rear clip and maybe additional/replaced interior/exterior colors.

Most of the changes are going to be looks rather than function. I would put money on the 'new tech' being the technology that is missing from the TLX at the moment but on all the others like Acura Watch being standard instead of only a few of the Acura watch features are on higher levels Elite/Advance.
Its getting the new OS system that is already on the NSX that's andriod based but looks exactly like the current version the only difference is the map looks a bit slicker and slightly different design but the rest of the menu's are the same it doesn't lag as much as the current one either.

although I would love to see the ZF9 gone and anything in its place, and maybe Apple CarPlay....I think that we are going to get an appearance upgrade vs anything with powertrain. I would buy a TLX if the Zf goes away, but I am betting that I am going to have to look elsewhere for my next car. Maybe the new RDX whenever that comes out.
