The 2017 Acura TLX Offers a Little Something for Everyone
A variety of available powertrains and plenty of amazing performance enhancing technologies are just a few of the things that Daphne drivers have to look forward to with the 2017 Acura TLX. Keep reading to learn all about how the TLX provides drivers with the power and performance they really want with ease.
Powerful Engine Configurations
The 2017 Acura TLX not only provides Biloxi drivers with a powerful epicenter for performance, but it provides two unique variations of it. In doing this, the TLX is able to cater to the needs of a larger crowd by becoming the versatile sedan drivers search for. The first engine option is a 2.4L 16-valve I4 with the ability to deliver a balanced power output of 206 hp and 182 lb-ft of torque. Not to mention, this configuration remains fuel-conscious and is able to give drivers up to 24 mpg city and 35 mpg highway*.
The second powertrain configuration is built to cater to the needs of the market’s sportier drivers. True thrill seekers will love the 3.5L 24-valve V6 with the potential to deliver 290 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque at the drop of a dime. Just because this option is turbocharged and ready for action doesn’t mean it’s a gas guzzler, in fact, the engine is able to provide a healthy 21 mpg city and 34 mpg highway*.
Drivetrains and Transmissions
To provide drivers with even more freedom to choose, the 2017 TLX offers three drivetrain options. The 2.4L engine comes standard with a front-wheel drive system with a Precision All-Wheel Steer System. The 3.5L engine offers a choice between a simple all-wheel drive system or a unique Super Handling All-Wheel Drive System. Each has their perks, but will ultimately suit different kinds of drivers in different ways.Ready to check one out? You’ll like the TLX with the tech additions!
