2015 TLX Details Leaked
Apr 14, 2014 - 6:41 PM - by AutoGuide.com


Quote:
Unofficial details about the 2015 Acura TLX – the replacement to both the TSX and TL – have leaked ahead of the car’s planned debut this week in New York.

A user on AutoGuide.com’s own TLXForums.com who claims to have attended a product training session in Texas released what he says are mechanical details about the new car. Acura hasn’t confirmed their authenticity, but they certainly look spot-on.

If they’re correct, the new car will feature two powertrains in production form: a 3.5-liter V6 mated to a nine-speed automatic and a 2.4-liter four-cylinder paired to an eight-speed automatic. The V6 supposedly makes 290 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque while the four-cylinder offers 206. In the nine-speed’s case, shifts are supposed to be 25 percent quicker than with the auttmatic TL while paddle-prompted shifts are supposed to be five times faster at responding.

But faster shifts aren’t the only enhancement. Assuming the post is accurate, the V6 TLX offer improved fuel economy. The post suggests ratings will rise to 21 mpg city and 34 mpg highway for the front-wheel drive model or 21 city and 31 highway for super-handling all-wheel drive variants. The TLX SH-AWD system is also supposed to be 25 percent lighter than the TL version. According to the user, Acura is also packaging an engine start-stop system as standard equipment.

The car is also supposed to come with an electronic parking brake, standard Siri Eyes Free integration and an optional “sport plus” mode that alters throttle reponse and steering feel. While the TLX is also supposed to be shorter than the TL, it has roughly the same wheelbase.

Check Out the Cars of the Future
Mar 18, 2014 - 5:40 PM - by AutoGuide.com
As close to an auto-industry crystal ball as any single page on the internet can be, we've launched a new Future Cars section dedicated to reporting on the latest in what's coming next.

There's an old belief that concept cars never make it to production. On the contrary, they almost always do; they just often change enough over time, evolving significantly from wild design studies to more practical people movers. The new AutoGuide Future Cars pages will let you track the development of your favorite model or keep tabs on what new an exciting cars are coming down the pipe.

From early rumors to spy photos our Future Cars pages will follow the development of highly-anticipated new vehicles until they reach the market sometimes years from now. We aim to give you the straight facts and plenty of enticing rumors on exactly what we do know about these cars, along with photo galleries of concept cars and, of course, video previews of the near-production vehicles before all the hard specs have been confirmed.

When is the Best Time To Buy A Car?
Feb 07, 2014 - 3:48 PM - by AutoGuide.com

“The waiting game” is the least exciting way to pass the time, but if you’re looking to get a good deal on a new car, then you’re going to have to be patient.

Many people don’t realize that carefully choosing when to buy your car can save you quite a bit of money. Well timed car purchases could save you thousands of dollars, if you play it just right. Here are a few tips to help you net that car you want – all while saving some precious money.

The Numbers Games
Dealerships and automakers award successful sales staff with money or perks for moving a certain number of vehicles during a given time period.

Steve Emery a consultant from the National Automobile Dealers Association explains that incentives can come from the automaker or within the dealership. Those issued by the automaker, are usually annually or quarterly, although monthly sales goals aren’t uncommon either. Then each dealership has their own incentive program for their sales managers and sales staff. “They’re like contests and can take place over a month,” he says. “The incentives for the sales staff works in a stepped manner- if you sell 10 cars you get a $500 dollar bonus all the way up to, let’s say 15 cars gets you $1,000.”

Emery advises buyers to visit dealerships at the end of the month in order to gauge how hungry the dealership is to make a deal. If the salesperson is desperate to hit their target that month or quarter they may offer a few discounts, or forgo the usual lengthy process and headache when it comes to buying a new car.
