2019 Acura TLX Performance Features

The 2019 Acura TLX is a high-performance luxury sedan that offers drivers impressive power, agility, and fuel economy. Ready to outperform the competition and tackle even the toughest Wisconsin roads, the TLX possesses a combination of strength and sophistication and earned a place as a finalist for the Best Luxury Midsize Car for the Money award from U.S. News & World Report. With two engine and transmission choices, two drivetrain options including an AWD system, and a long list of active safety features that boost performance on the road, the TLX offers a thrilling driving experience.

Engine Options

The TLX comes with two dynamic engine choices. The first is an inline-4 that produces up to 206 horsepower and 182 lb-ft of torque. It offers drivers a sophisticated and sporty performance on the road. But for drivers who want even more power, the second engine choice is a 3.5L V6 engine that produces 290 horsepower and 267 lb-ft of torque.


Each engine works in tandem with a transmission that transfers the power generated under the hood and delivers it to the wheels. The inline-4 engine is paired with an 8-speed DCT (Dual-Clutch Transmission) with torque converter and Sequential SportShift Paddle Shifters with the inline-4. Designed for racing, this transmission shifts faster through the gears and offers drivers an engaging experience behind the wheel.

The V6 engine comes paired with a 9-speed automatic transmission with Sequential SportShift paddle Shifters. Drivers can select an automatic mode and choose a sport shift mode, or drive in full manual mode and shift through the gears for more thrills behind the wheel.

Fuel Efficiency

The fuel economy of the TLX will vary slightly depending on which engine and drivetrain is right for you. But all models of the TLX will deliver impressive fuel efficiency, with the standard model earning up to 33 mpg on the highway*.

  • Inline-4 – 23 city / 33 highway / 27 combined mpg*

  • V6 with P-AWS – 20 city / 31 highway / 24 combined mpg*

  • V6 with SH-AWD – 20 city / 29 highway / 23 combined mpg*


Designed for front wheel driving, the Precision All-Wheel Steer, or P-AWS, system enhances the performance of the TLX. The system is designed to independently adjust the rear wheel toe angles for better agility and greater stability while cornering, changing lanes, and braking. The P-AWS is the standard choice on the TLX.

  • SH-AWD

    For more enhanced control, the Super Handling All-Wheel Drive System, or SH-AWD, delivers power seamlessly to the four wheels of the TLX. Sensors help transfer power from the front to the rear and from side-to-side to rotate the TLX in a turn. SH-AWD enhances cornering, changing lanes, cruising on the highway, and driving on slippery or icy roads with better stability and added traction control. SH-AWD is available only with the V6 engine.
