Why Are Acura PMC Edition Vehicles Eagerly Anticipated?

May 1st, 2019 by


A new range of Acura PMC Edition vehicles will harness the unique capability of Acura’s Performance Manufacturing Center (PMC) in Marysville, Ohio. Starting with the 2020 Acura TLX PMC Edition and following with an Acura MDX PMC Edition, models will be hand-built by experts in limited numbers.

Read on to discover what you can expect from these upcoming limited edition cars.

Acura PMC Edition vehicles

Acura PMC Edition vehicles will be built by the same master technicians that hand assemble the Acura NSX supercar, and both hand-built cars are making their debut at the Jacob Javits Center for the 2019 New York International Auto Show.

In the words of Jon Ikeda, Acura Brand Officer: “We designed the PMC not only to build NSX, but to give Acura the flexibility to explore handcrafted production of limited-edition models”.

2020 TLX PMC Edition

Distinguished by grade-exclusive Valencia Red Pearl paint with nano-pigment technology, the TLX PMC will feature V6 power and Acura Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®). We’re promised the bold exterior and interior design elements of the TLX A-Spec will be complemented by multiple PMC Edition-exclusive design elements, inside and out.

Features exclusive to TLX PMC Edition include:

  • Unique PMC Edition Numbered Serial Plaque
  • Gloss Black 19-Inch Split-5-Spoke Wheels with Black Lug Nuts
  • Gloss Black Roof Panel
  • Gloss Black Door Handles
  • Gloss Black Diamond Pentagon Grille with Body-Colored Grille Surround
  • Dual 4-Inch Black Chrome Exhaust Finishers
  • Premium Black Milano Leather Seats with Alcantara™ Inserts, Black Piping and Red Stitching
  • Perforated Leather-Wrapped Steering Wheel with Red Stitching and Paddle Shifters
  • Red Stitching on Door Panel, Center Console, and Armrest
  • Premium Floormats with Metal A-Spec Badging

After the hand-assembly process is complete, the TLX PMC Edition will have to undergo the same rigorous quality control process as the track-inspired NSX. Before being transported to the dealer via an enclosed car carrier, each one will be wrapped in a specially designed car cover.

We Can’t Wait to See PMC Editions Hit the Roads of Chicagoland

Already celebrated by critics as “among the standout vehicles in the crowded segment of compact-luxury sedans”, the Acura TLX is set to reach new heights with the PMC Edition, and we’re eager to see the Acura MDX follow suit. Whether you want to explore Acura MDX packages, browse the latest lineup of Acura AWD models, or hear about current offers, the team at your local Chicago Acura dealership can help.
