The much anticipated 2021 Acura TLX Type S is almost here, since Acura has announced that it will go on sale in June. Acura has also announced that the pricing for the new TLX Type S will start at $53,325, including destination.
There are two versions to choose from, the standard TLX comes with 20-inch wheels with Pirelli Cinturato P7 all-Season tires. Buyers also can opt for the TLX Type S with High Performance Wheel and Tire Package for $54,125, which has unique split 5-spoke wheels that reduce unsprung mass by more than 21 lbs., and 255-series Pirelli P-Zero summer tires.
The TLX Type S is powered by a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine with 355 horsepower and 354 pound-feet of torque. The V6 is mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission and sends its power to all four wheels via the Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system.
It’s rated at 19 mpg city, 25 mpg highway and 21 mpg combined, but if you add the High Performance Wheel & Tire Package, it’s rated at 19/24/21.
If you want one, act fast, since Acura says it will build fewer than 2,000 units for the 2021 model year.
