Acura TLX: Two Powerful Engines

The Acura TLX, is a brand-new sedan, and although it may only be in its second generation, it’s already proving itself to be a major player in the industry. As capable and luxurious as any German vehicle, with the added benefit of legendary Japanese reliability. The TLX is the obvious choice.

Equipped with a standard 2.0 L turbo engine, it generates an impressive 272 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque, making it a great drive for the open road or even off track! Originally fitted with a 9-speed automatic transmission, today the vehicle features a 10-speed transmission for smoother gear shifting and improved fuel economy.

The standard all-wheel drive system on all versions guarantees the car remains stable even in the harshest of winters. And with four driving modes, you can tailor your ride to suit your mood or the demands of the road.

For those looking for even more performance, the Acura TLX Type-S is a clear favorite: its 3.0 L turbocharged 6-cylinder engine delivers 355 horsepower and 354 lb ft of thrust!

Eric Stafford, a journalist for Car and Driver, describes the feeling of this engine as follows:

“Our first drive showcased its gutsy engine, engaging steering, terrific body control, and strong brakes.”
