2015 Acura TLX Prototype Goes Into Production For Mid-Year Delivery

The 2015 Acura TLX Prototype is 3.8 inches shorter in overall length (190.2 inches) than the current TL, and rides on the same 109.3 inch wheelbase as the TL between the smaller ILX and larger RLX sedans. Coming in two-wheel and all-wheel drive configurations, the TLX has two engine choices. An all-new 2.4-liter 16-valve inline 4-cylinder engine employs direct-injection and Acura's i-VTEC® valvetrain, and is significantly lighter than previous Acura engines of similar configuration and displacement and is mated to an all-new 8-speed dual clutch transmission with torque converter. Another choice is a 3.5-liter SOHC V-6 that also employs direct injection and VTEC variable valve control and cam timing along with fuel-saving Variable Cylinder Management™ cylinder deactivation technology and is mated to a new 9-speed automatic transmission. The all-new 2015 TLX performance-luxury sedan is launching mid-year at Acura dealerships nationwide.
