2015 Acura TLX Priced From $31,890

#Acura, #TSX

Pricing for the 2015 Acura TLX 2.4L starts at $31,890 (with destination) for models with the base 206-hp, 2.4-liter inline-four engine and eight-speed dual-clutch automatic. Stepping up to the 290-hp, 3.5-liter V-6 engine and nine-speed automatic transmission costs $36,115.

The 2015 Acura TLX, introduced earlier this year at the 2014 New York auto show, takes the place of both the Acura TSX and the Acura TL. As such, its starting prices aren't too far removed from the sticker prices of those cars. The 2014 Acura TSX started at $31,620 after destination, and the 2014 Acura TL started from $37,015.

The 2015 Acura TLX 2.4L comes only with front-wheel drive. Standard equipment includes Precision All-Wheel Steer (PAWS), which turns the rear wheels for improved handling; push-button start; LED headlights; and a backup camera. Moving up to the Technology Package pushes the price to $25,920.

The 2015 Acura TLX 3.5L is offered in a total of five trim levels: three with front-wheel drive and PAWS, and two with Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive. The front-wheel-drive TLX 3.5L is $36,115 as standard, $40,145 with the Technology package, and $43,395 with the Advance package. Buyers who want the 2015 Acura TLX 3.5L equipped with SH-AWD will pay $42,345 for the Advance package and $45,595 for the Technology package. Models equipped with both the Tech and Advance packages include safety features like pre-collision braking, forward-collision warning, lane-departure warning, lane-keep assist, and a blind-spot warning system.

When equipped with the four-cylinder engine, the 2015 Acura TLX is rated at 24/35 mpg (city/highway), while the V-6 model receives ratings of 21/34 mpg with front-wheel drive and 21/31 mpg with all-wheel drive.

To help get buyers into the 2015 Acura TLX, Acura also announced today special lease deals for the new sedan. Eligible shoppers will be able to lease a TLX 2.4L for $299 per month for 36 months, with a $2499 down payment, or the TLX 3.5L for $349 per month for 36 months. Owners who are already leasing an Acura can have their lease extended by three months while they wait for a 2015 Acura TLX to arrive in dealership stock.

The 2015 Acura TLX goes on sale this August.

On paper, that seems like a lot of vehicle for a sub-$32k MSRP. If the TSX-gains outweigh the TL-losses in this middle-ground car, then this could result in the same kinds of successes they saw back in 2004 when the 3rd gen TL came out.  I'll be interested to see how well this goes for them.  Gorgeous car!
No dual clutch with the v6? Why?
reminds me of when the late 90's early 2000's Acura CL & TL were performance bargains.  This even under cuts the base 2.5 ATS by about 2K, and though it will not be as quick as the 320i, I would take this instead for probably close to 35K nicely equip.
