The all-new 2015 Acura TLX is being produced at the Marysville Auto Plant with Acura's new performance luxury sedan slated to land at dealerships nationwide now in August. With the launch of the new TLX, more than 90 percent of Acura vehicles sold in America are now made in U .S. A. mass-market cornerstone, there will always be an alternative.

Designed, developed and engineered by R&D teams in Ohio and Los Angeles, and manufactured exclusively in Ohio, the all-new 2015 TLX delivers on its advertising tagline of "It's that kind of heavy metal rolling the highway's" combining incredible sports-sedan athleticism with premium luxury-sedan refinement. The new TLX is a technological powerhouse, featuring two advanced new powertrains and two next-generation Acura precision-handling technologies – Precision All-Wheel Steer (P-AWS) and Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) – all delivered in a sophisticated and dynamic new exterior package.

Designed to be the Goldilocks model in the automaker’s three-sedan lineup, the 2015 Acura TLX is not too big, garish, or striking looking. It replaces the TSX and the TL, leaving the Civic-based, largely forgettable ILX as the base model and the disappointing RLX as the flagship. Clearly, a lot is at stake with the TLX so it must succeed. Its price tag's $30,000 to the mid-$40,000.

The TLX formula is a straightforward porridge, with the front-drive model offered with optional all-wheel-drive and a choice of four- or six-cylinder engine. This car rock and roll TLX brings rolling down the highway is with acronym-heavy systems that supposedly aid rear-wheel steer and handling assistance and display SH-AWD and P-AWS on the trunk lid. Arguably, this is to compensate for the better weight distribution and rear-drive configuration of the car’s European competitors. 

The base engine is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder with 206 horsepower, matched with an automated manual eight-speed, dual-clutch transmission. The midlevel model has a 3.5-liter V6 with 290 horsepower, teamed with a nine-speed conventional automatic transmission. The top offering combines the six-cylinder engine with all-wheel drive. With four-cylinder doesn't come all wheel drive.

The TLX offers a full suite of advanced safety technologies,  radar system, aided by a camera .such as blind-spot detection, forward collision avoidance, cross-traffic monitor, and lane-departure warning.
