This top of the line sports sedan will soon be available nationwide with the new package, with both 2016 and 2017 TLX models covered, and, if you find yourself out west, you can check it out at Acura’s booth in the 2016 SEMA Show in Las Vegas.
If you don’t think you’ll be heading to Nevada anytime soon, don’t despair – just read on to hear everything we know about this cool new package.
The Acura TLX GT Package
All Acura models exemplify a dedication to performance that rests a cut above the ordinary, but the TLX line has always been relied upon to go a few steps further. The GT Package will reflect the manufacturer’s rich legacy in sports car design by offering:
- Rear Decklid Spoiler
- Front Spoiler
- Side Sill Garnishes
- Rear Underbody Spoiler
- Optional 19-inch Diamond Cut Wheels
With additions like these, GT Package models will benefit from superior aerodynamics, a wider, more confident stance, and even bolder and more aggressive styling than the standard model. Sounds like something absolutely worthy of your attention.
The 2017 Acura TLX
The GT Package looks fantastic in isolation, but it’s impossible to truly understand its potential without considering the thrilling foundation that is the current Acura TLX.
A 2.4L four-cylinder engine comes standard and delivers up to 206-hp and 182 lb.-ft. of torque, all harnessed by an eight-speed speed automatic transmission, which operates using a specialized gearbox with dual-clutch automated manual mode. For an even more potent drive, you can always electrify passengers by opting for the 290-hp and 267 lb.-ft. of torque offered by the 3.5L V6 engine, which is paired up to a sophisticated nine-speed automatic transmission.
Those high-end outputs are made even more thrilling by the addition of a revolutionary Super Handling All-Wheel Drive system with Precision All-Wheel Steer; with it, you’ll be able to feel the vehicle handling as surely as any other sports sedan around, even when you’re throwing it into corners or opening up the engine.
And the TLX makes sure you remain comfortable and entertained by offering the following features:
- Milano Leather Sports Seats
- Keyless Access System
- Adaptive Cruise Control
- Lane Departure Warning
- Lane Keep Assist System
- Siri Eyes Free
- 8-Inch Touchscreen Satellite Navigation
- Heated and Ventilated Seats
