Here we have images and information’s about the 2015 Acura TLX that will be delivered as a replacement for the TL and TSX. Photos are from the 2014 Detroit Auto Show and we can see that the presented vehicle is almost production ready.
There will be only small changes to this car before it comes to production so we do expect to see it delivered pretty soon. What we could hear and see the new TLX will deliver a lot and will be set between ILX and RLX top offer from this car maker. Its message is that we are getting “luxury refinement and sports-sedan athleticism with exhilarating performance.”
2015 Acura TLX News
It is noticeable that we are getting design cues available on other new Acura models so this one also fits nicely into current lineup. LED headlights are combined with LED turn signal that are mounted on the side mirrors, when we add aggressive but also refined grille we are getting pretty complete looking vehicle. Everything is painted in the Athletic Red Pearl color while the great custom five spoke alloy wheels with low profile tires are something that further improves looks especially from the side.
We are getting many great technologies integrated into this car and one of those that will certainly make a difference and improve either performance or fuel economy is the IDS. This is a shorter for Integrated Dynamics System that allows driver to choose between four driving modes. Available modes include Economy, Normal, Sport and Sport+. When one of these modes are chosen it will allow computer to control transmission shifts, throttle response, steering feel, active noise control, driveline control logic and more. When this is set to Economy mode it will also able to control the heating and ventilation making it more efficient.
Redesigned 2015 TLX
Release date is still not delivered but we do know that it will come later this year. Base engine for the 2015 Acura TLX will be the 2.4 liter inline four cylinder unit that will send power to the front wheels through a eight speed dual clutch transmission. More power will be offered from the 3.5 liter V6 that will be offered with cylinder deactivation technology to reduce fuel consumption while the power goes through all new nine speed automatic.
Eight speed transmission will be delivered with torque converter but at this moment we do not know how it is implemented or even why. These information’s will be offered at a later date. This car is also offered with Acura’s Precision All Wheel Steer while the more powerful 3.5 liter equipped models will be also offered with all wheel drive system Super-Handling All Wheel Drive.
There are no official information’s about the price of the 2015 Acura TLX but we do expect it to be slightly above $36,000 for a base version. Since this is a new model we do not have predecessor to compare it with but those details that we currently have are pretty much official and we do not expect that anything will change when the deliveries start.
