The 2017 Acura TLX is heading to dealerships with a starting price tag of $32,820 including destination.
That marks a slight increase of $185 compared to last year’s model, although little has changed. Acura announced three new colors for the 2017 Acura TLX: San Marino Red, Lunar Silver Metallic and Modern Steel Metallic.
But the powertrain carries over, meaning the base model comes standard with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine with 206 horsepower and 182 pound-feet of torque mated to an eight-speed dual clutch transmission, while the more powerful 3.5-liter V6 with 290 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque, paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission, is available on higher trim levels. The standard model can be upgraded with the Technology Package for $4,050 additional.
The 2017 Acura TLX 3.5L will start from $36,270, while adding SH-AWD will cost $43,440 and includes the Technology Package. An Advance Package is also available for $3,200. Models in Technology and Advance trims come equipped with a 490-watt, 10-speaker Acura/ELS Studio Premium Audio System.
When equipped with a 2.4-liter engine, the 2017 Acura TLX returns 24 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway while the 3.5-liter V6 model is rated at 21-mpg city, 34-mpg highway. The TLX SH-AWD is expected to get a fuel economy rating of 21-mpg city and 31-mpg highway.
“The Acura TLX continues to receive accolades for its combination of styling, driving dynamics and luxury refinements,” said Jon Ikeda, vice president and general manager, Acura Division. “TLX embodies the performance and technological sophistication of the Acura brand.”
