Acura TLX concept

Auto Tech
What's up, everybody? This is Antoine Goodwin with CNET.com. We're on the floor at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show taking a look at the Acura TLX prototype. Now, as that name kind of implies, this is the combination of the TSX and the Acura TL merging the larger Sudan and smaller Sudan into one that should be just right for the brand. It's a thinly veiled look at what we should expect from a vehicle in the future. So, under the hood, you've got a choice between either-- a 3.5-liter V6 or 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine, again, one of those engines came from the TSX, one came from the TL. Both of those engines will be able to be made it to Acura's super handling all-wheel drive system and other sort of trickle down from the larger TL model. And then you also got Acura's all-wheel steering, which is something that we've actually only ever seen in the RLX, the actual really big large flagship model, that they've got. Now, this prototype has a couple of really sort of concepty-thing that you wouldn't see on a production car like these sort of a sequential LEDs and the turn signals, but things like the all-LED headlights, we'll probably actually see on the production model because the Acura MDX already employs that technology. I wouldn't be surprised to see this thing showing up at another car show later this year without the prototype moniker and with a model year showing up sometime next year as an actual production model. I'm Antoine Goodwin with CNET.com, and we're on the floor at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show taking a look at the Acura TLX prototype.
