Regardless of what type of driver you are, Acura offers two engines in the Acura TLX. The standard engine is a 2.4L inline 4-cylinder capable of generating 206 horsepower and 182 lb-ft of torque. Mated to an 8-speed Dual-Clutch Transmission, the 2020 TLX offers a smooth ride that shifts seamlessly between gears.
Drivers who prefer a sportier ride with a larger engine should be excited about the available 3.5L V6 engine and 9-speed automatic transmission. This set up produces up to 290 horsepower and 267 lb-ft of torque.
Both engines also provide their drivers with a highly efficient driving experience. In the 4-cylinder engine, you can expect an EPA-estimated 23 city/33 highway/27 MPG.* The sportier V6 engine will have a slightly shorter range, with an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 20 city/31 highway/24 combined MPG.*
