2018 Acura TLX Type S Specs and Design Renderings


Talking about the 2018 Acura TLX Type S specs, it would talk about modern sedan from a middle age automaker. For your information, ACURA has already been thirty one years old serving the U.S market. This manufacturer isn’t a new face in the industry. But, here comes a question why it is still less than exciting especially in the U.S market.

About Automaker

You need to know that Acura was launched in 1986 in United States where it becomes the primary aim throughout the years. It did build its own reputation by producing some cars with attractive looks, powerful performance and valuable for the buyers. They offered NSX sports car and A-Spec, Type R and Type S variants so that people look Acura as a sporty car automaker. Then, the time flies and changes. So does Acura. They are changing their image now as a modern SUV automaker but still sporty as its core image. Let’s see some good news from the newest model of TLX Type S below.

The 2018 Acura TLX Type S specs are based on the Acura Precision Concept. You can notice it from its sharp jaw and pentagonal grille. From its good-looking appearance, we just get refreshed with its stylish and modern look from the previous model year. However, it isn’t a revolutionary change for the TLX. It is just like having face surgery and here comes the new face of TLX. It does look so different with the predecessor back in 2009 ago. Inside its new face, we got the same specifications as the previous model year. Two engine options are offered. They are a 2.4 L four-cylinder and a 3.5 L V6 engines. We expect nothing but new horsepower numbers from both engines surely. If there are no changes at all, the TLX will still have the last year’ horsepower at 206 horsepower for 2.4 L and 290 horsepower for the 3.5 L V6 engines.


As a result, the 2018 Acura TLX Type S Specs will also come with front-wheel and all-wheel drive systems. Perhaps, the only change comes from the torque-vectoring SH-AWD system. It helps the engines to manage the power allocation especially at the gap between wheels so that TLX will have maximum traction. However, it is only offered on the top trims with V6 engine under their hoods. That is all we got for the regenerating something that is old now.

Since the 2018 Acura TLX Type S specs are still similar to its brother A-spec, we also expect something similar to the exterior and interior. The most spreading news at the moment belong to the 2018 Acura TLX A-Spec instead of Type S. We have only a few things to say about the Type S now. So, the exterior will borrow from the A-Specs. You must have seen the white, modern face of A-Spec. We assume that Acura doesn’t want to bring something news as long as they both are rumored at the same model years.

Our Thoughts

We just share our opinion in the form of predictions based on Acura Precision concepts and some leaked photos of the TLX A-Type and 2017 TLX Type S up there. The release date of 2018 Acura TLX Type S specs is also still unannounced yet. So, please be patient guys.
