2015 Acura TLX

The all-new 2015 TLX was designed to deliver a unique and compelling
blend of sports-sedan athleticism and premium luxury refinement,
appealing to a broad cross-section of luxury sports-sedan customers
with a wide range of powertrain and drivetrain options. The TLX lineup
features three distinct model offerings that carry a long list of
standard luxury comfort, convenience and safety features. All TLX
models can be upgraded to the Technology Package and the V-6 models
are available with the line-topping Advance Package.

The three model variations feature two Acura exclusive, high-output
direct-injected i-VTEC® engines, two advanced transmissions and two
unique dynamic handling systems.

The Acura TLX with a 2.4-liter 16-valve, 4-cylinder engine producing
206 horsepower3 mated to an all-new 8-speed dual-clutch transmission
(8DCT) with torque converter. The 2.4-liter TLX has an MSRP of
$30,995* and $35,025* with the Technology Package. For handling
prowess, it features the latest iteration of Acura's Precision
All-Wheel Steer (P-AWS).

The Acura TLX with a 3.5-liter 24-valve V-6 delivering 290-horsepower4
is mated to a new 9-speed automatic transmission (9AT) and will be
available with both P-AWS and Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive™
(SH-AWD®). The two-wheel-drive model with P-AWS has a MSRP of $35,220*
and $39,250* for the Technology Package. The 3.5-liter TLX with
Advance Package has a MSRP of $42,500*.
Sharing the same 3.5-liter dynamic powertrain as the two-wheel-drive
model, the all-wheel drive TLX SH-AWD features a new hydraulically
controlled version of Acura's acclaimed torque vectoring SH-AWD and
will be available with the Technology Package for an MSRP of $41,450*
and $44,700* for the Advance Package.

Super Handling Technology

The latest iterations of Acura super-handling technologies, P-AWS and
SH-AWD, along with Agile Handling Assist (AHA), help make the TLX the
most dynamically advanced Acura ever produced; quick and responsive in
sporty driving, stable and sure-footed in emergency maneuvers, and
calm and quiet during long-distance cruising.

The new P-AWS system was integrated into the fundamental chassis
design from the earliest stages of development, allowing engineers to
take full advantage of its independent left and right rear-wheel toe
angle control to enhance handling precision, maneuverability and

The next-generation SH-AWD system is 25 percent lighter and friction
is substantially reduced. The new rear-drive unit is constantly
overdriven by 2.7-percent (compared to 1.7 percent on the previous
system), with a greater torque-vectoring effect across a broader
spectrum of driving situations, further enhancing cornering capability
at lower speeds and in tighter-radius corners.

All TLX models also feature the latest development of Acura's
Integrated Dynamics System (IDS), which allows drivers to customize
their driving experience through four selectable modes; ECON, Normal,
Sport and Sport+. Depending on the setting, IDS will adjust
power-steering effort, throttle response, transmission shift logic,
HVAC system operation, active sound control and the control logic for
either the P-AWS or SH-AWD systems. The new Sport+ mode, a first for
Acura, unlocks the full performance potential of the TLX with the most
aggressive settings in all areas.

Fuel Economy

The TLX equipped with the 2.4-liter engine has an EPA fuel-economy
rating of 24/35/285 mpg city/highway/combined. The TLX two-wheel-drive
with the 3.5-liter V-6 has an EPA fuel-economy rating of 21/34/2551
mpg (+1 city/+5 highway versus the outgoing two-wheel-drive 2014 TL).
The TLX SH-AWD has an EPA fuel-economy rating of 21/31/255 (+3 city/+5
highway versus the outgoing 2014 TL SH-AWD).

Standard Features

Unlike other luxury vehicles in its class, the TLX offers a number of
compelling features as standard equipment across the TLX lineup,
including Jewel Eye™ LED headlights, Smart Entry and pushbutton
ignition, rearview camera, Hill Start Assist and more.

Further, the TLX Tech and Advance trim levels add a host of available
features, including a suite of safety and driver-assistive
technologies, including the 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).

Design and Packaging

The TLX's lithe new exterior design features taut body surfaces,
dynamically sculpted fender arches, and purposeful character lines.
Its sporting appeal is further highlighted by its more compact
sports-sedan proportions (3.8-inches shorter in overall length than
the 2014 TL) and Acura's signature Jewel Eye™ LED headlights that are
standard on all models. The spacious five-passenger interior of the
TLX provides a high degree of refinement, luxury and technological
sophistication while supporting an exhilarating driving experience.

Interior Features

An abundance of luxury features and technologies are available on the
TLX, including heated and ventilated front seats, HomeLink®,
Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink®, smart entry and pushbutton ignition keyless
access system, Acura Navigation System with 3D view, and AcuraLink®
Real-Time Traffic™ with Traffic Rerouting. A 7-inch On Demand
Multi-Use Display™ (ODMD) touch screen, located in the center console,
controls these and other features, and, with its contextual menus,
displays relevant items while minimizing instrument panel clutter.

Also available on the TLX is the next-generation AcuraLink®, Acura's
cloud-based connected car system, offering Acura owners a broad range
of cloud-based and embedded convenience, connectivity and available
security features. All TLX models also come equipped with Siri Eyes
Free technology that, when paired with a compatible iPhone®, allows
the driver to control functions using familiar voice commands.
Additional standard and available luxury features include one-touch
turn signals and power windows, power driver and front passenger
seats, GPS-linked automatic climate control, Color Multi-Information
Display (MID) with turn-by-turn guidance, LED accent lighting, HD
Radio®, Pandora® and Aha™ integration and USB connectivity.

In keeping with Acura's commitment to delivering a world-class audio
experience, the TLX can be equipped with a 455-watt, 10-speaker
Acura/ELS Studio® Premium Audio System, engineered specifically for
the TLX by legendary recording engineer Elliot Scheiner.

Development and Manufacturing

The 2015 TLX was designed, developed and engineered in the U.S.
Production of the new TLX and its powertrain will take place at the
company's state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Marysville,
