2021 Acura TLX Ready for Launch
The 2021 Acura TLX is set to launch nationwide September 28th as the quickest, best-handling and most well-appointed sedan in the brand's 35-year history. Built upon a model-exclusive body structure and chassis architecture, the 2021 TLX will initially be offered with a new 2.0-liter DOHC VTEC Turbo engine, delivering more peak torque than the outgoing 3.5-liter V6, with a dramatic increase at the low end of the rev range. Compared to the outgoing entry 2.4L model, the new TLX offers substantially more performance (+66 horsepower, +98 lb.-ft. peak torque) and major increases to technologies and premium amenities - establishing a new and more upmarket entry point for the Acura sedan. Additional performance improvements for the 2021 TLX include a quick-shifting 10-speed transmission, sport-tuned chassis with double wishbone front suspension, NSX-derived electro-servo brake-by-wire technology, and available adaptive dampers. The 2021 TLX 2.0T will have a base price of $38,525, an increase of $1,300 over the outgoing 3.5-liter V6-powered TLX. The TLX Type S, with Acura's new 3.0-liter V6 Turbo and standard Super Handling All-Wheel Drive, arrives next spring.
