Acura will unveil the new 2015 Acura TLX concept at the Detroit Auto Show in January next year
Acura intends to soon add a new vehicle in its line up of models for North America. To be dubbed as the TLX, the new model will be unveiled in its concept form at the upcoming Detroit Auto Show in January next year.
It is being said that the upcoming concept will closely resemble the production spec model, that could arrive around the end of next year. The production spec TLX will replace both the Acura TL and the Acura TSX in North America.
“This all-new Acura TLX is the perfect blend of style and muscle with its elegant, well-proportioned exterior that cloaks the true sport sedan chassis and powertrain beneath,” said Mike Accavitti, senior vice president, American Honda Motor, Co., Inc. “The sporty characteristics that customers found appealing in the TSX are even more pronounced in this aggressive new TLX.”
Acura earlier confirmed that intends to combine the TL and TSX models into a single brand, which will be called as the TLX and will “clarify its sedan lineup,” by providing a simple nomenclature- compact ILX, mid-size TLX and flagship RLX.
The 2015 Acura TLX is likely to go on sale with two direct-injection petrol engines. Acura says that these motors will have “high-performance and highly fuel-efficient.” These motors will come attached to either a new CVT or the 7-speed dual-clutch transmission that is available on the RLX. The TLX will go on sale in both two-wheel drive and all-wheel drive variants.
The upcoming Acura TLX is being developed at Acura’s Los Angeles Design Studio and will be manufactured at Honda’s Marysville plant in Ohio
