Production 2015 Acura TLX to debut at New York auto show

Wed, 19 Mar 2014

The 2015 Acura TLX will make its production debut at the 2014 New York auto show. The TLX will slot below the RLX in Acura's lineup, and get the option of a four- or six-cylinder engine. We first saw the TLX prototype at the Detroit auto show in January.

Not much has changed from the so-called prototype, at least technically. The TLX will get either the company's 2.4-liter four making about 200 hp, or the 3.5-liter V6 making about 310 hp. Acura hasn't revealed the exact output. The four will work with an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission; the V6 gets the company's nine-speed auto.

Both engines will be offered with two- and four-wheel drive. The all-wheel-drive versions will get Acura's cutely named P-AWS (Precision All-Wheel Steer) and the V6s will get SH-AWD (Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive), which is 25 percent lighter than the last system.

An alphabet soup of safety features includes collision mitigation braking system (CMBS), forward collision warning (FCW), lane departure warning (LDW), lane keeping assist system (LKAS), adaptive cruise control (ACC) with low-speed follow and blind spot indicator (BSI).

The TLX is expected to go on sale this summer. We'll find out more during press days of the show starting April 16.
