2021 Acura TLX Production Starts

Acura's TLX sedan now in mass-production, at dealers next month

  • All-new TLX built in Ohio

  • Gets Acura-specific platform, laser brazed roof


Acura’s all-new TLX sedan is ready to go. The automaker has started mass production of its latest model at the automaker’s plant in Ohio and its set to hit dealers later next month.

The new TLX was designed and developed by Acura designers and engineers in Ohio and California, starting with an all-new platform not shared with any Honda model. The Acura TLX and the new TLX Type S will be built exclusively at Marysville, Ohio.

“We are incredibly proud to deliver Precision Crafted Performance for our Acura clients with a TLX that sets a new bar for performance and premium quality in an Acura sedan,” said Marysville Auto Plant General Manager Bill Easdale. “Our associates are dedicated to ensuring the highest level of quality with this new TLX, which comes on the heels of an incredibly successful Acura RDX sport-utility vehicle and the electrified NSX supercar, all made exclusively in Ohio.”

Both the base 272 hp 2.0L turbo four and the Type S-exclusive 355 hp 3.0L turbo V6 will be built in nearby Anna, OH, and will be paired with a 10-speed automatic gearbox.

“On behalf of everyone who designed and developed this amazing 2021 Acura TLX, seeing the first vehicle roll off the assembly line is a dream come true,” said Marc Ernst, TLX global development leader.

This will be the first Acura with a laser brazed roof, a new bonding process that creates a seamless join between roof and side panels, eliminating the need for traditional (and ugly) rain channel trim. Thanks to other new weld processes and adhesives, Acura says this will be its most rigid sedan ever to help with dynamics and ride. 2021 TLX models are set to hit dealers late September starting from $43,990 Canadian.
