2010 Acura TSX V-6 Debuts at Chicago Auto ShowMore Powerful TSX Blows into the Windy City
Acura debuted an all-new V-6 model for its TSX sports sedan line-up at the Chicago Auto Show today. Scheduled to go on sale this summer, the 2010 TSX V-6 will be equipped wîth a powerful 3.5-liter engine, exclusive suspension tuning, larger diameter wheels and additional enhancements.
'The automotive market may be slowing down, but not Acura,' said Jeff Conrad, vice president of Acura sales. 'With improved acceleration and handling, the new 280 horsepower V-6 adds even more sport to the already sporty nature of the popular TSX sports sedan. (concept carz)'
Since its redesign last year, the TSX has shattered sales records to become one of Acura's best-selling sedans. As the entry point to the Acura brand, the four-cylinder TSX has won over customers wîth its nimble handling, agile driving feel and balanced performance. The V-6 model adds a new level of power on top of these winning traits for a more sporty and spirited driving experience. The V-6 will surely satisfy driving enthusiast's appetite for a fun-to-drive, yet refined sports sedan. (concept carz)
With the introduction of a V-6 powered TSX, Acura will fill a niche in its lineup between the four-cylinder TSX and the all-new TL performance luxury sedan. (concept carz) With the TL moving more upscale following its redesign in the 2009 model year, the TSX V-6 will be aimed squarely at youthful buyers who want a performance-oriented sports sedan in a more personal size.
6-speed Manual, 5-speed Automatic
A new TSX powertrain choice means performance luxury buyers can enjoy a 280 horsepower 3.5L V-6, wîth sophisticated VTEC® valvetrain control and a dual-stage induction system. For maximum performance and efficiency, the engine will be coupled to Acura's Sequential SportShift automatic transmission, wîth intelligent features such as Grade Logic Control and Shift Hold Control. If the driver desires, the Sequential SportShift transmission can also be operated manually, via §teering-wheel mounted F1®-style paddle shifters.
The new TSX model will feature a state-of-the-art, double-wishbone front and multilink rear suspension system to provide excellent ride, handling and control. To generate sportier handling, the V-6 model will also use exclusive suspension tuning along wîth 18-inch split five-spoke aluminum wheels, fit wîth Michelin Pilot all-season tires. The larger wheels and tires will help distinguish this performance- minded TSX, as does the slightly revised front fascia and a V-6 badge on the trunk.
The TSX V-6 model will be generously equipped wîth the latest advancements in safety technology and is anticipated to achieve the highest ratings in both government (NHTSA)* and independent (IIHS) crash testing - including garnering IIHS's TOP SAFETY PICK.
Like all Acura models, the new TSX will feature an exceptional level of standard equipment, including leather-appointed interior, power moonroof, automatic climate control, a premium seven-speaker sound system wîth CD, AM/FM tuner, XM® Satellite Radio, Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink® , ÚSB port and AÚX jack music interface and more.
Similar to the four-cylinder TSX, the V-6 model will be available wîth the optional Technology Package that includes the Acuralink™ satellite navigation system wîth rear-view camera and the Acura/ELS Surround® premium audio system for a top-in-class audio experience.
The introduction of the TSX V-6 at the Chicago Auto Show is the first step in a series of major advancements to the 2010 Acura lineup. Almost every Acura sedan and SÚV will receive significant enhancements for the 2010 model year.
Acura offers a full line of technologically advanced performance luxury vehicles through a network of 270 dealers within the Únited States. The Acura lineup features five distinctive models, including the RL luxury performance sedan, the TL performance luxury sedan, the TSX sports sedan, the turbocharged RDX luxury crossover SÚV and the award-winning MDX luxury sport-utility vehicle.
