2020 Acura ILX Efficient Drivetrain
With eight ratios on the 2020 ILX, your engine operates at or near peak efficiency across the speed spectrum. The Acura ILX comes with a 2.4L 4-Cylidner engine on all of its packages, which is perfectly complemented by an 8-Speed Dual-Clutch Transmission (DCT) with Sequential SportShift Paddle Shifters.
DCTs have a clutch for odd-numbered gears (1, 3, 5, 7) and a different for even gears (2, 4, 6, 8) – this means the next one up or down is always preloaded. This design has typically been used for racing, but here has been translated to an everyday luxury sedan. Expect faster, more fluid shifts between gears in addition to impressive efficiency scores with a negligible loss of torque between gears. DCT models sometimes have the reputation of shifting roughly, so Acura added a torque converter for smoother launches.
