The vehicle is set for launch in the United States in the month of September. With just weeks to go before the launch, the official pricing of the model has been revealed. Much to the surprise of many, it has been priced at $38,525 which is higher than what a higher-powered older model would cost. The only good thing about this price tag is that it includes the destination delivery charges and you may not be expected to pay more.
Increased Pricing Justified by Luxury
The 2021 edition of the TLX is at least $1,300 more when compared to the V6 engine variant. The 3.5-liter variant of the same TLX but an older edition delivered much higher power on paper and in the real world. The newer model is capable of delivering an impressive 272 horsepower but it is nowhere as good as the outgoing model that offered 290 horsepower. However, the new car set for launch next will be powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine that should in theory offer more comfort and a luxurious drive because of the balancing made to the body of the vehicle.
