Ohio-Built 2015 Acura TLX Gets Ready to Take on the Best From Europe, Japan

2014 Acura TLX production

Acura’s latest sports sedan is rolling off the assembly line this week. The automaker says that the all-new 2015 TLX is slated to arrive in showrooms next month. As with 90-percent of Acura’s lineup, the TLX is made in America.

Designed, developed and engineered by R&D teams in Ohio and Los Angeles, and manufactured exclusively in Ohio, the TLX is one of Acura’s biggest product launches in recent years. It is effectively replacing the midsize TL and the compact TSX. Combining  sports-sedan athleticism with premium luxury-sedan refinement, the TLX is squarely aimed at competing with the likes of the Infiniti G sedan and Lexus IS.

“The start of mass production of the TLX marks a new era for our Acura sedan lineup,” said Mike Accavitti, senior vice president and general manager of Acura. “The TLX is built in a world-class facility with a world class workforce and we can’t wait to get this thrilling sedan into the hands of our customers in just a few short weeks.”

As with other models in the Acura lineup, the new TLX is brimming with technology features. It also boasts unique features that promise to give it exceptional traction and handling capabilities. These include Precision All-Wheel Steer (P-AWS) and Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD). Power is delivered via a 206-horsepower 2.4-liter DOHC inline four-cylinder or an available 290-horsepower 3.5-liter SOHC V6.

Acura understands that the luxury segment is more competitive than ever. Customers demand the highest quality and exception fit and finish. That’s why the Marysville Auto Plant building the TLX implemented sophisticated new manufacturing technologies to assure superior build quality and luxury refinement. Innovations to the manufacturing process included a new roll hemming technology that allows for more sophisticated vehicle styling, and the application of new sound-deadening materials that contribute to the ultra-quiet cabin of the vehicle. These are among that many steps that Acura is taking to ensure that the new TLX is one of the most thrilling sedans in its segment.

“We are proud to be the exclusive global manufacturer of the Acura TLX,” added Marysville Auto Plant Manager, Rob May. “Working side-by-side with our Acura engineers, our dedicated team of manufacturing associates is committed to exceeding the expectations of every customer and producing the best products in the world.”
