2022 Acura TLX: Powertrains

Last year, in 2021, the Acura TLX underwent a makeover; amongst other things, it adopted a new standard 2.0 L 4- cylinder turbo engine, for greater performance. It comes as no surprise that this powerful engine is back in 2022, and will definitely please adrenaline junkies with its 272 horsepower and 280 lb-ft. maximum torque!

Are you looking for greater speed still? Then you can opt for the Type S trim level with the 3.0 L turbo V6: it will give you 355 horsepower and 354 lb-ft. maximum torque! This engine was also part of the makeover, making the TLX even more competitive than ever, giving it an edge over its rivals!

For a smooth driving experience with efficient gear shifts, you can rely on the 10- speed automatic Acura transmission. A manual mode with paddle shifters on the steering wheel will provide you with the added thrill purists are looking for.

The TLX demonstrates that you do not need an SUV in order to face icy roads in the winter. It is equipped with the SH-AWD system, one of the best in the industry, as well as torque vectoring technology for a safe and reassuring driving experience. This will allow you to combine pleasure at the wheel with peace of mind!

The 2022 Acura TLX’s exterior design

The 2022 Acura TLX is a compact sedan that stands out thanks to its athletic style. The long well-sculpted hood, the optional 19- or 20- inch wheels, the diamond-pattern grill and the Jewel Eye LED headlights will definitely attract –and keep- your attention.

The A-Spec trim level adds an extra sporty feel thanks to the black trunk spoiler and the Shark Gray alloy wheels.

The Type S will, of course, let everyone know it is the queen of performance with its 20- inch high-performance wheels, its four exhaust tips and front Brembo brakes.

2022 Acura TLX: A high quality interior

Whatever trim level you choose, this luxury sedan offers a refined interior with high quality materials. As Daniel Rufiange mentions in the L’Annuel de l’automobile 2023: “[The level of quality] is visible and palpable. Better yet, when it comes to the interior lighting, it is simply spectacular and surely the most beautiful, compared to anything else that is currently being made across the industry.”

In fact, the IconicDriveMC 10 point lighting system or the A-Spec red lighting both offer a unique experience. Moreover, the A-Spec wears its sporty style proudly by boasting a metal footrest as well as seats that are upholstered with a combination of leather and Ultrasuede, a feature it has in common with the Type S.
