2015 Acura TLX to Debut at the 2014 New York International Auto Show
TLX to deliver higher levels of luxury refinement and sports-sedan
athleticism with thrilling performance

The production Acura TLX performance-luxury sedan will make its world
debut at the 2014 New York International Auto Show. Designed to
compete in the midsize luxury segment, the 2015 Acura TLX will deliver
higher levels of luxury refinement and sports-sedan athleticism with
exhilarating performance enhanced by next-generation Acura powertrain
and dynamic-handling technologies.

The 2015 TLX will offer two advanced new powertrains – a 2.4-liter
16-valve, direct-injected i-VTEC® 4-cylinder engine mated to an
all-new 8-speed dual-clutch transmission with torque converter; and a
3.5-liter 24-valve direct-injected i-VTEC V-6 mated to a new 9-speed
automatic transmission.

Two-wheel-drive models, available with either the 2.4- or 3.5-liter
powerplants, will utilize the next-generation of Acura Precision
All-Wheel Steer™ (P-AWS™) technology with independent left and right
rear-wheel toe angle control. The TLX SH-AWD™, available exclusively
with the 3.5-liter powerplant, will employ a next-generation
Super-Handling All Wheel Drive™ system that is 25-percent lighter and
incorporates new torque-vectoring control logic.

The TLX was designed to deliver vault-like quietness in all driving
conditions, with major improvements in noise reduction through
enhancements to body stiffness, body sealing and sound insulation, and
the application of electronic Active Noise Control. The TLX will be
available with Acura's most advanced safety and driver-assistive
technologies including 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).

First, that's a really dumb video on the web site, and I seriously
doubt that they're going to ship the car in candy-apple red, or that
it will ever sound like it does in the video.

Second, is all that steering claptrap worth the effort?

Third, to be taken seriously it is just plain time for Honda/Acura to
offer a V8 option, and maybe a two-wheel rear-drive option.

Fourth, where the *hell* is the NSX they've been teasing for three
years now? When will it make its way from Tony Stark's garage to Jay
Leno's? Not that I'm ever going to drive one, but I'd like to watch a
few zip by.
