Summer of Performance Sales Event: The Clock is Ticking


Commonly found in our 2019 Acura models are four-cylinder engines and V6 systems. If you don’t understand the difference, don’t worry—we’re here to explain at Hall Acura Virginia Beach!

First and foremost, never underestimate a four-cylinder powertrain. In the past, this engine was assumed to be slow and sluggish, but they have come a long way. Many four-cylinder systems either come with a turbocharger or have the option available, increasing your speed and torque. Usually, the cylinder heads are arranged in one straight line, which is why you see I-4” or inline four-cylinder engines” when you’re browsing through a specifications page. For instance, the Acura TLX comes standard with a 2.4-liter inline four-cylinder powerhouse that churns out a satisfying 206 horsepower and 182 lb-ft of torque. Not to mention, this engine size is known as a gas saver, so you can enjoy fewer visits to the pump.

Another standard and available option offered under the hood of many Acura models are V6 engines. The cylinder heads in these systems are arranged in a V” shape. They’re larger and usually more powerful than their four-cylinder engine counterparts. For example, the standard 3.5-liter V6 powerhouse lying beneath the sheet metal of the Acura MDX produces 290 horsepower 267 lb-ft of torque for an exciting cruise down the highway.
