8-Speed DCT

The 2015 Acura TLX 8-speed dual clutch transmission is ready to thrill. Instead of using a clunky and slow single clutch, the TLX uses two clutches to operate alternating gears for a smoother, more efficient, and more responsive drive. Odd-numbered gears and even-numbered gears operate with the separate clutches as the sensors in your TLX determine whether or not the next gear shift will be in an upward or downward direction. The second clutch prepares for the shift before it happens, resulting in a minimal loss of torque from your engine.

Racing TLX with 8-speed double clutch transmission

If you choose the 3.5L V6, you will also love the 9-speed automatic transmission, which lets you choose between economical and sport shifting. You can use your paddle shifters to take complete control when you want to have a little more fun on your drive. The electronic gear selector allows you to get the gear you want at the touch of a button, while alternating drive modes allow a unique driving experience. Grade logic control and shift hold control helps you navigate hills and curves along the way and hill start assist makes sure you don’t lose any ground as you start from a stopped position on an incline.

The dual clutch transmission on the 2015 TLX also includes some extra features to make it a perfect choice for the driving enthusiast:

  • 8 gear ratios to keep efficiency optimal at almost every speed
  • An added torque converter that makes acceleration from a stopped position as smooth as possible
  • Paddle shifters that offer wickedly quick response, speeding up the shift to milliseconds rather than the traditional half-second response time of other vehicles
  • Energetic turn acceleration and mountain braking
  • Sport+ mode operation that lets you drive using paddle shifters exclusively
  • Automatic return to regular operation after using paddle shifters in Normal, Economy and Sport modes
