2020 Acura TLX: Power and Performance


The 2020 Acura TLX may only be classified as a luxury midsize sedan, but don’t let the car’s actual size fool you. The sedan packs plenty of power and offers on-road performance that rivals some of the best (and biggest) cars out there.

2020 Acura TLX Rim

Starting with a Well-Engineered Standard Engine

The 2020 Acura TLX starts off with a masterfully engineered 2.4-liter engine that extracts energy from its four cylinders with unparalleled precision. The inline design gives the cylinders longer strokes that lead to more horsepower, and intelligent variable valve timing with lift electronic control ensures each stroke is perfectly executed.

The result is something the redefines what a four-cylinder is capable of, and all of that power is seamlessly transmitted to the wheels via an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission that has a torque converter. The maximum possible output comes in at 206 horsepower.

Stepping Up with Big V6 Power

For an even bigger boost under the hood, the standard four-cylinder can be changed out for a 3.5-liter V6 that’s larger, has more cylinders and generates more power. Also equipped with intelligent variable valve timing and lift electronic control, this beast generates up to 290 horsepower -- all of which can is translated to the wheels via a 9-speed automatic transmission.

Redesigning Front-Wheel Drive

All of the four-cylinders and many of the V6s are paired with Acura’s state-of-the-art Precision All-Wheel Steer technology, which is a major advance in front-wheel-drive technology.

Precision All-Wheel Steer isn’t technically all-wheel drive because the system doesn’t deliver power to the rear wheels. It does, however, adjust the toe angles of the rear wheels whenever the steering wheel is turned. The adjustment substantially improves handling when cornering, braking or changing lanes.

Offering Full-Fledged All-Wheel Drive

For maximum control in all road conditions, Superior Handling All-Wheel Drive is available with the V6 engine. A complete and proven all-wheel-drive system, this drivetrain delivers the exact amount of power each wheel needs to maintain maximum traction no matter what conditions you drive through.

2020 Acura TLX HeadlightLetting the Driver Choose the Mode

Topping everything off, the 2020 Acura TLX offers four drive modes that make it easy to adjust performance whenever changes are desired. The four modes are Normal, Normal Sport and Sport+, and they make changes in the following ways:

• Normal is the default mode with everything evenly set

• Econ reduces throttle sensitivity and slows the cooling process to increase fuel economy

• Sport increases the steering system’s firmness, drivetrain’s responsiveness, throttle’s sensitivity and engine noise for a more thrilling experience

• Sport+ makes the Sport’s changes, and also sets the transmission to shift at higher RPMs and cuts the HVAC system during acceleration to maximize output

Test-Drive the 2020 Acura TLX

In order to fully appreciate all that the 2020 Acura TLX is capable of, take one for a test drive at McGrath Acura of Downtown Chicago. Try out both the four-cylinder and the V6, and see what each is capable of in the different drive modes. There are plenty of models ready for test-driving at the dealership’s 1301 N. Elton Ave., Chicago location, which is an easy drive from Oak Park and Berwyn, and you’re welcome to try them out Monday through Saturday.
