Default 2015 Acura TLX production gets underway in Ohio

Filed under: Sedan, Plants/Manufacturing, Acura, Luxury

It's been three months since Acura unveiled the supposedly production-ready TLX sedan at the New York Auto Show, but dealers have yet to receive any units to sell. That's because, as we reported back in April, production of the TLX was pushed back. We're glad to report now, however, that production has commenced at the Marysville Auto Plant in Ohio.

The Honda facility in Marysville, just south of Columbus, also produces the Accord sedan and coupe for local consumption and export. With over 30 years since its founding, the factory has previously handled production of the Acura TL and RDX as well as the company's Gold Wing motorcycles.

The Marysville Auto Plant is one of many facilities which Honda operates in Ohio. Among the others, you'll also find the East Liberty assembly plant that handles the Acura RDX as well as the Honda Crosstour and CR-V, an engine plant in Anna, a transmission factory in Russells Point, several R&D centers, component manufacturers and a new Performance Manufacturing Center being built to handle the coming NSX sports car in Marysville.

The TLX is a new model that replaces both the previous TSX and TL sedans, slotting in above the smaller ILX and below the flagship RLX in Acura's updated four-door sedan lineup. It's being offered with either a 2.4-liter four driving 206 horsepower to the front wheels or a 3.5-liter V6 with 290 hp and all-wheel drive. The addition of the TLX production line now means that over 90 percent of Acuras sold in America are built in America.Continue reading 2015 Acura TLX production gets underway in Ohio
