Default 2015 Acura TLX confirmed for New York debut

Filed under: New York Auto Show, Budget, Sedan, Acura, Luxury



Acura has announced that the 2014 New York Auto Show will see the arrival of the production TLX - the sedan that will replace both the TL and TSX in the company's lineup. The TLX was already previewed at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show as a near-production concept model, meaning we already have a very solid idea of what the 2015 model will look like.

What we didn't know, was that Acura has finally gotten on board with some advanced powertrains, rather than just plucking stuff from the Honda parts bin. Okay, that's kind of a lie. We've seen both of the TLX's engines in previous Honda products - a 2.4-liter, VTEC four-cylinder and a 3.5-liter VTEC V6 from the Civic Si and Accord, respectively - but the transmissions will be totally new.

First, an eight-speed, dual-clutch automatic will be paired with the base four-pot. The V6, meanwhile, will get a nine-speed automatic. Unfortunately, there's no mention of a manual gearbox. Acura's Precision All-Wheel Steer will be standard on the front-drive variants for both engines, while the 3.5-liter V6 will also be available with the brand's Super Handling All-Wheel Drive.

While we'll likely have to wait until April 16 for all the details on the TLX to arrive, we'll admit that it sounds like Acura is screwing together a competent sedan, based on the powertrains alone. We'll have much more on the TLX and all the other vehicles debuting in New York, as we get closer to the show. Until then, scroll down for the full press release from Acura.Continue reading 2015 Acura TLX confirmed for New York debut
