2018 Acura TLX

A new era in luxury sedans has dawned. The 2018 Acura TLX features the same dedication to handling and overall comfort as previous models, but it’s been refreshed with a redesigned front end, more connectivity features, and the performance focused A-Spec trim. Whether you’re just picking up the kids from school, or headed out on the track, the TLX can meet your needs. Find out more at McGrath Acura of Westmont today!

Engine Options

In addition to a luxurious interior, the Acura has an exciting powerplant waiting under the hood. Let’s take a look at the two available engines of the TLX:

  • The TLX’s 2.4L four-cylinder engine puts out 206 hp and 182 lb-ft of torque. That’s plenty of power to get you up to speed on Interstate 80 near Barrington.
  • Some performance enthusiasts require a higher level of acceleration and speed. The TLX’s upgraded 3.5L V6 engine delivers 290 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque.

In addition, the TLX V6 engine can be equipped with Super Handling All-Wheel Drive. Unlike all-time four-wheel drive systems, Acura’s all-wheel drive only sends more power to the rear wheels when difficult road conditions are present. This provides a balance between exceptional fuel economy and plenty of traction, and during tough Chicago winters, you’ll be happy you added it.

Driver Assistance Features

For 2018, Acura has decided to make advanced safety standard. The TLX includes many high tech active safety features in the base trim:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control – Set your following distance behind the vehicle ahead of you and relax. This system will speed up and slow down with the flow of traffic.
  • Lane Departure Prevention – If you begin to drift out of your lane, the TLX subtly corrects your steering to guide you back.
  • Road Departure Prevention – This system activates if you begin to leave the road, first warning you, then correcting your steering. It can even initiate braking to prevent the TLX from leaving the road.
  • Collision Prevention Braking – If an object is detected in the your path, this system can activate the brakes to avoid a collision.

The TLX’s suite of confidence-inspiring safety systems will go a long way toward keeping your family safe and secure. That’s why Acura has extended its advantages to all TLX buyers.
