acura has begun production of the 2021 tlx 2.0t sports sedan at honda's marysville, ohio plant, and the type s model will follow, although acura has not specified a date. the base-model tlx will start at $38,525 when it goes on sale september 28, while the v-6–powered tlx type s, which acura says will start just over $50,000, won't arrive until next spring.
the previous-generation tlx was powered by a naturally aspirated 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, and the new model will use a more powerful 272-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four. both front- and all-wheel-drive versions are available. the high-performance type s model, which will follow the 2.0t, is powered by a 355-hp turbocharged 3.0-liter v-6, which makes 65 more horsepower than the old tlx v-6. both engines will be built at acura's anna, ohio, plant and will be mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission.
prices for the tlx 2.0t can reach upward of $50,000 when fully loaded, and there are multiple trim levels available. a tlx with the technology package starts at $42,525; the a-spec model, which has a slightly more aggressive look and larger wheels, at $45,275; and the loaded advance package model starts at $47,325.
acura has not yet given details on the tlx type-s's starting price—only that it'll be in the low $50,000 range—or when it'll go into production. the 2021 acura tlx will arrive in dealers at the end of next month starting at $38,525.
