The current generation of Acura’s mid-size sedan has been around since 2021 and if we can trust the latest reports, the next year’s model, which will represent the fourth production year, probably won’t bring bigger changes. Instead, we expect to see a familiar design, with familiar design and features. That refers to the high-performance 2024 Acura TLX Type S as well, which will continue to deliver strong performance and a great driving experience.
Of course, we won’t exclude the possibility to see some kind of a special version, just like we saw the PMC Edition for the 2023 model year. Still, the overall layout will remain the same and this model will continue to deliver various upgrades over standard versions, starting from the more powerful engine, various chassis upgrades and, of course, all kinds of visual upgrades.
As there are no significant changes to come, we presume that the 2024 TLX Type S will arrive sometime in the last quarter of 2023.
2024 Acura TLX Type S Design
So, the 2024 Acura TLX Type S will continue in a familiar way. This is a high-performance version of the familiar mid-size sedan, which comes with all kinds of upgrades. Of course, there are various styling upgrades, which accentuate the model’s performance character, starting from more aggressive bumpers, bigger wheels etc.
However, mechanical upgrades are far more important and the TLX Type S comes with a variety of them. One of the first things that come to mind is upgraded suspensions, along with upgraded front brakes. The steering is more direct, while we shouldn’t forget the increased torsional rigidity of the chassis, which also has a significant impact on the overall performance.
Finally, there is the company’s well-known all-wheel-drive system. Of course, we are talking about the SH-AWD, which stands for Super Handling ALl-Wheel Drive, which is one of the best systems of this type around. It features torque vectoring, which means that not only 70% of power can go to the rear wheels, but 100% of that power can be sent to each rear wheel.
2024 Acura TLX Type S Engine
The heart and soul of this model is the 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 engine, which puts out around 355 horsepower and 354 pound-feet of torque. The engine comes in pair with a 10-speed automatic transmission, which has been upgraded for this occasion, to offer faster shifts and rev matching. The whole system feels pretty capable, so it’s no wonder that the car needs just 4.9 seconds to hit 60mph.
When it comes to fuel economy, the TLX Type S returns around 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway.
As we already mentioned, the 2024 Acura TLX Type S comes with lots of exclusive features when compared to the standard model. Some of the first things you’ll notice are various styling upgrades, starting from more aggressive bumpers, unique grille patterns, attractive 20-inch wheels, etc.
In terms of mechanical features, we should mention adaptive suspension, Brembo front brakes, additional chassis bracing, Sport+ driving mode etc.
Among other notable upgrades, we should mention things like LED puddle lights, power-folding side mirrors, rain-sensing wipers, wiper de-icer system, remote engine start, 16-way power-adjustable front seats etc.
2024 Acura TLX Type S Release Date and Price
We expect that the 2024 Acura TLX Type S will arrive sometime in the last quarter of 2023, with a starting price of around 56.500 dollars. Key competitors are high-performance versions of models like the Audi A4, BMW 3 Series etc.
