Acura envisionings to supply the new TLX with a choice in between two engines. As typical equipment, a brand-new direct-injection, 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine drives the auto’s front wheels via an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission (DCT). Acura promises that the DCT will certainly provide fast, smooth equipment changes and will seamlessly match revs when downshifting.
A direct-injection, 3.5-liter V-6 engine with fuel-saving Variable Cylinder Management innovation and a new 9-speed automatic transmission is available, and called for if the purchaser wants Acura’s next-generation version of its Super Handling All-Wheel-Drive (SH-AWD) system. The optional SH-AWD is lighter compared to before, and employs brand-new torque-vectoring technology.

All models of the brand-new Acura TLX 2015 are geared up with an Integrated Dynamics System (IDS). The IDS changes the electric steering, throttle feedback, transmission shift mapping, SH-AWD device, and P-AWS device to one of 4 environments: Econ, Normal, Sport, or Sport+.
