Luxury Cars with Powerful Engines

Acura has been known to provide Chicagoland drivers with affordable luxury cars for quite some time now. However, things are heating up as these vehicles begin getting upgraded and remodeled in order to host a 4-cylinder engine. Keep reading below to find out what this means and why it’s so important, as well as some details about the vehicles with these engines.

The 4-Cylinder Engine Makeup

Four-cylinder engines are great for a number of reasons. They have the potential to fit in various-sized vehicles and can provide a lot of power with a little bit of effort. Acura has taken advantage of the engine’s ability to do this and has begun making them available on some of their more popular vehicles. Currently, the two vehicles in the Acura lineup hosting a 4-cylinder engine are the ILX and the TLX, which each have 2.4L direct injection 4-cylinder engines. The ILX uses this engine to provide up to 201 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque, while the TLX gets 206 hp and 182 lb-ft of torque. Each engine is available with an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission for maximum control.
