2020 TLX Performance Specs
Acura of Modesto customers will be able to find the 2020 Acura TLX with two trim grades. The base version of the Acura sedan will have a naturally aspirated 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine under the hood that is attached to an eight-speed automatic transmission.

It will produce 206 horsepower and 182 pound-feet of torque. Models of the 2020 Acura TLX with this powertrain will only have access to front-wheel-drive.

Potential buyers looking for something with a bit more power, can option for a 2020 TLX equipped with the 3.5-liter, V-6 engine that is mated to a nine-speed automatic. These versions will make 290 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque.

As we stated earlier, only V-6-equipped versions of the 2020 Acura TLX will have the option of adding the automaker’s Super Handling All-Wheel Drive® system.

Does having SH-AWD affect fuel economy?
The Acura Super Handling All-Wheel Drive® system is a great tool for providing the person behind the wheel with more driving confidence when the road surface might be wet and/or slippery. However, it will come at the cost of a mile-per-gallon* or two when compared to versions of the 2020 Acura TLX using front-wheel-drive.
