Acura Santa Barbara Customers can view the live debut and be first to order the new TLX.
Santa Barbara, CA April 2014 – After the first glimpse of the 2015 Acura TLX prototype at the Chicago Auto Show, Acura Santa Barbara customers are ready and eager to see the production version of this athletic, luxury sports sedan. The 2015 Acura TLX will deliver an exhilarating performance that is enhanced by the next-generation Acura powertrain and dynamic-handling technologies. Customers can save the date April 16, 2014 for the 1:50pm (EST) press conference which will be available live from the New York International Auto Show at www.youtube.com/acura for all Acura Santa Barbara customers to catch the first glimpse of this impressive vehicle.
The TLX will feature two advanced new powertrains – a 2.4 liter 16-valve inline 4-cyclinder engine that utilizes direct-injection and Acura’s i-VTEC® valvetrain mated with an all-new 8-speed dual clutch transmission (DCT) with torque converter; and a 3.5 liter 24-valve direct injected i-VTEC® V-6 that is mated to an all-new 9-speed automatic transmission. Two-wheel drive is available on either powertrain and will utilize the next generation of the Acura Precision All-Wheel Steer™ (P-AWS™) technology with independent right and left rear-wheel toe angle control. The 3.5 liter powerplant is available with the next-generation Super-Handling All Wheel Drive™ system that incorporates new torque-vectoring control logic, while being 25-percent lighter than the prior generation.
Peace and quiet are going to be easy to find in the new TLX, which was designed to deliver vault-like quietness in all possible driving conditions. Noise reduction has been improved through body stiffness, sound insulation, and the application of electronic Active Noise Control.
Safety will always be the number one priority and the TLX is equipped with all the latest driver-assistive technologies including the 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).
The all-new 2015 TLX performance-luxury sedan will be launching mid-year nationwide at all Acura dealerships. Call or visit Acura Santa Barbara today to ensure that you will be the first to slip behind the wheel of the all-new Acura TLX.
