2015 Acura TLX to Debut at the New York Auto Show in Production Form

Following the Detroit debut of the 2015 Acura TLX prototype, the Japanese luxury automaker has now confirmed that it will reveal the final production version of the car at the New York Auto Show in April.

As Acura has accustomed us in recent years, the production model should be almost identical to the study, so don’t expect to see any significant changes.

Replacing both the TL and TSX sedans, the 2015 Acura TLX will be offered with two new powertrains: a 2.4-liter 16-valve, direct-injected i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine mated to an all-new 8-speed dual-clutch gearbox with torque converter, and a 3.5-liter 24-valve, direct-injected i-VTEC V6 mated to a new 9-speed automatic transmission.

The 2015 Acura TLX will be available as a front-wheel-drive model with both engines and will feature the next-generation of Acura Precision All-Wheel Steer (P-AWS) technology with independent left and right rear-wheel toe angle control.

The TLX SH-AWD model, available exclusively with the 3.5-liter engine, will feature a next-generation Super-Handling All Wheel Drive system that is 25-percent lighter and incorporates new torque-vectoring control logic.

Acura says the TLX was designed to “deliver vault-like quietness in all driving conditions,” with the carmaker promising major improvements in noise reduction thanks to enhancements to body stiffness, body sealing and sound insulation, as well as the application of electronic Active Noise Control.

Safety and driver-assistive technologies available on the 2015 TLX include 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).
