Acura just dropped the first official teaser of the all-new 2021 TLX sports sedan, which also marks the return of the Type S high-performance version after a ten year hiatus.

The new 2021 Acura TLX will celebrate its digital debut next Thursday, May 28, at acura.com/2021-TLX. The Japanese carmaker is letting us take a peek at the rear end of the new TLX, which features pretty much the same styling with the stunning Type S concept, shown at the 2020 Chicago Auto Show.

The short video also shows that this is the range-topping Type S variant of the 2021 TLX, with Acura adding that this will be the first model to use the brand’s dedicated twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 engine. Previous reports suggested that this engine was in development specifically for use in future Type S models and apparently were 100 percent true.

As for the power, the new V6 is expected to offer more power than the current 290 HP 3.5-liter V6. Acura’s 2021 TLX Type S will also employ the brand’s Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system, as noticed from the small badge on the trunk lid.

Base variants of the new TLX will reportedly use the turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder unit from the Honda Accord, paired to a 10-speed automatic transmission.

Stay tuned for the big digital reveal of the 2021 Acura TLX on May 28, at 1:00 pm EST.
