New performance sedan

2021 Acura TLX Type S is on sale today

The Type S gets a turbocharged V6 engine.

Acura

Acura released an all-new version of its popular TLX sedan for the 2021 model year. It got new tech and sleek styling, but a much-anticipated performance version of the car is just now becoming a reality. The TLX Type S is rolling out to dealers now, and offers a significant bump in power and capability over its standard TLX counterparts.

After 13 years, Acura is adding a high-performance Type S trim to the TLX lineup. The cars feature a hot turbocharged V6 engine, Acura's excellent Super Handling All-Wheel Drive system (SH-AWD), and true torque vectoring for sticky handling in the corners.

The TLX Type S sees a whopping 355 horsepower and 354 pound-feet of torque from its turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine. Acura says the powertrain derives much of that power from tech that was derived from the NSX supercar. The engine uses a single twin-scroll turbocharger, which should reduce turbo lag and improve throttle response. The same engine will power the upcoming 2022 MDX Type S SUV.

In addition to impressive specs, the engine also carries advanced fuel saving tech. Using a Variable Cylinder Management system, the V6 can shut down three of its cylinders in a variety of situations to conserve fuel. Additionally, the engine has a new active vibration control system, which reduces chassis and engine vibrations when the engine is shifting between three- and six-cylinder operation.

As is the case with many sports sedans, the TLX comes with an active exhaust system. The new feature uses a valve in each muffler that can be opened or closed to provide more flow and a deeper sound. When fully opened, Acura says the exhaust becomes up to seven decibels louder. The system is controlled using the TLX's drive mode select function in the cockpit.

Pricing for the 2021 Acura TLX Type S starts at $53,325, which includes destination. Upgrading to the high-performance wheel and tire package pushes the price to $54,125. The cars start arriving at Acura dealerships today.

The new Grand Cherokee L is on its way to dealers now.

Stellantis

The all-new three-row Grand Cherokee L was unveiled earlier this year, and features an ultra-premium interior, a load of new tech, and sharp styling that shouts back to Jeep models of the past. Just a few weeks ago, we learned pricing and feature details for the new model, and now Jeep says the vehicle is on its way to dealerships across the country.

In terms of styling, the L's shape has been reworked from previous Grand Cherokee models to be more reminiscent of the Jeep Grand Wagoneer. The automaker says that the grille has been tilted forward and is now wider for better air flow and a more dramatic appearance. The idea was to make the Grand Cherokee L look rugged, but keep it sleek and technical in the process.

The stretched Grand Cherokee retains the engines that powered its predecessors. That means a 3.6-liter V6 is standard, which delivers 293 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. A 5.7-liter V6 is optional, and makes 357 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque. Both engines come paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission and either rear- or al-wheel drive. Either powertrain option will provide decent towing capability, but the V8 is unsurprisingly more powerful. With a V6 on board, the Grand Cherokee L can tow 6,200 pounds, while V8-powered models can pull 7,200 pounds.

Inside, Jeep says the L can be equipped with the latest tech and entertainment features. Running the latest Uconnect infotainment software, the Grand Cherokee L will be capable of wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and can be had with a head-up display, a rear-seat monitoring camera system, and a 950-watt 19-speaker McIntosh audio system. At the top end of the lineup, the Summit Reserve model gets Palermo quilted leather, open-pore waxed walnut wood, and 21-inch wheels.

Pricing for the L starts at $38,690 after destination, which buys the base Laredo trim. The range-topping Summit Reserve model starts at $61,690 after destination. Dealer deliveries are underway now, supported by almost 5,000 employees at Stellantis' Detroit Assembly Complex.
