Acura has introduced the 2021 TLX, it will be faster, different and exciting. But the question I have, should you wait for it? And how does it compare to the 2020 model?
In this video I go through some details regarding the 2020 Acura TLX vs newly designed 2021 Acura TLX. What we know so far and should you wait for it?
Some details of the 2021 TLX:
The TLX continues to offer both a four- and six-cylinder engine. The standard mill is a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four that makes 272 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque. The redesigned sedan also sees the return to the brand’s enthusiast roots with the Type S high-performance trim. This model alone gets the newly developed turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6, which we now know will generate 355 ponies and 354 lb-ft. It comes standard with Acura’s Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD). While the regular TLX starts with front-wheel drive, it can be had with SH-AWD too. Every version features a 10-speed automatic transmission, but the Type S receives unique tuning for sportier behavior. The TLX is built on a new and exclusive platform with a double-wishbone front suspension that’s said to improve its ride-and-handling versus the last generation. The sedan also now features variable-ratio steering, an electrically controlled braking system, and available adaptive dampers.
Relative to the previous model, the new TLX features a 3.7-inch longer wheelbase, 2.2-inch wider body with wider front and rear tracks (+1.2 in. and +1.6 in., respectively), lower roof (-0.6 in.) and an extended dash-to-axle dimension (+7.8 in.).
