Highly Anticipated 2021 Acura TLX Set To Arrive at Dealerships Late September

New model packs more performance and features at a starting price of $43,990

 

High performance Type S variant with 3.0 litre, V6 Turbo to arrive next spring

 

Markham, on. Aug. 20, 2020—The 2021 Acura TLX is set to launch nationwide in late September as the quickest, best-handling and most well-appointed sedan in the brand's 35-year history.  Built upon a model-exclusive body structure and chassis architecture, the 2021 TLX 2.0T packing 272-horsepower will carry a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $43,990.

 

Acura’s torque vectoring Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®) system is now standard with the TLX Type S, powered by Acura’s new 3.0-litre V6 Turbo, arriving next spring. Pricing for the Type S will be announced closer to its launch date.

 

Complementing its stunning new design and athletic stance, the TLX’s new 2.0-litre DOHC VTEC® Turbo engine delivers more torque (+13 lb.-ft.) than the outgoing 3.5-liter V6, with a dramatic increase at the low end of the rev range (+48 lb.-ft. @ 1,500 rpm). Additional performance enhancing features include a quick-shifting 10-speed transmission, sport-tuned chassis with double wishbone front suspension, NSX-derived electro-servo brake-by-wire technology, and available adaptive dampers.

 

Best-in-class technologies and features new to TLX include a new implementation of Acura’s True Touchpad Interface™ with a 10.2 inch HD center display, an available 17-speaker ELS STUDIO 3DÒ premium audio system, and available LED interior ambient lighting with up to 24 IconicDrive™ themes.

 

The new TLX expands on its standard AcuraWatch™ suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies with the addition of Traffic Jam Assist (TJA) and Traffic Sign Recognition, as well as an industry first next-generation passenger front airbag designed to mitigate potential injury in more steeply angled frontal collisions.

 

More information on the 2021 Acura TLX is available here.
