The Acura TLX released an all-new second-gen for the 2021 model year, topping the one with a TLX Type S, and ring the bell with the TLX Type S PMC Edition for the 2023 model year. With the fireworks still ringing out from it all, 2023 will be an otherwise quiet year for the sedan lineup. The upgrades are service-oriented, with the automaker offering three years of AcuraLink and the Security and Remote packages for free. The Remote Package can talk directly to the car with commands such as remote start and stop or lock and unlock, or owners can give commands to the car through Amazon Alexa Auto. Alerts like Find My Car and Stolen Vehicle Locator can keep tabs on the car’s location, worried parents can keep tabs on teens with features like Geofence Alert and Speed Alert. The safety package handles issues such as accident notifications, emergency service calls, and roadside assistance.
Acura also added its maintenance package to the stock offering. That gives two years or 24,000 miles of scheduled maintenance like oil changes and tire rotations. Any remaining balance can be transferred to a new owner if the car is sold before the time or mileage limits are reached.
Finally, it’s not mentioned in the press release, but the base spec 2.0T with SH-AWD and the 2.0T with the Technology Pack and SH-AWD are missing from the 2023 price list. That leaves eight models in the range thanks to the addition of the PMC edition.
Leftover prices are up, surprise, surprise. MSRPs for the 2023 TLX lineup, including the $1,095 destination charge for standard sedans and the $1,995 destination charge for the PMC Edition, and changes from 2022 onwards, are:
