The TLX sedan ended up being a surprise hit for Acura, driving its non-crossover sales to new heights. Knowing better than to mess with success, Acura is releasing the 2017 version of the TLX with very few modifications.
Specifically, the 2017 TLX will only gain a few extra exterior colors to choose from and one new interior option. The three new exterior hues include San Marino Red, Lunar Silver Metallic and Modern Steel Metallic. Inside, there is a new Ebony Black color scheme available with the San Marino Red and Fathom Blue Pearl exterior colors.
Otherwise, the 2017 Acura TLX remains completely unchanged from its previous model year, including its powertrain options. The standard powerplant is a 2.4-liter i-VTEC four-cylinder engine that cranks out 206 horsepower while the optional unit is a 3.5-liter V-6 with 290 horsepower at its disposal. The base engine comes equipped with an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission and front wheel drive while the optional engine has a nine-speed auto transmission and optional all-wheel drive.
Despite minimal changes, there is a mild price increase for the 2017 TLX. The base model jumps $205 to $31,900 and the base model with the Technology Package increases $200 to $35,950. Jumping into the V-6 model, its base price increases by $30 to $35,350 while the all-wheel-drive model, which includes the Technology Package, increases by $25 to $41,600. Adding the Tech Package to the V-6 TLX jumps the price to $39,400 while the Advance Package adds $3,200 to both the V-6 model with the Tech Package and the all-wheel-drive version.
The 2017 TLX is available at dealers now.
