Acura SLX Service in San Carlos and Valley Springs
The Acura SLX came and went between 1995 and 1999, so if you blinked you might have missed it! It was a midsized SUV, which actually was just an upgrade to the Isuzu Trooper with the Acura badge added to it. Acura produced the SLX in Japan and replaced it with the Acura MDX. The changes Acura made to upgrade the Isuzu Trooper into the Acura SLX were mainly adding luxury features to the interior plus replacing the front grille and wheels. They wanted to make the SUV appeal to the luxury SUV-buying market. Its competition in the price range was the Lincoln Navigator, the GMC Yukon, Ford Expedition and the Chevrolet Tahoe.
Acura’s SLX had the dimensions of the large Trooper, with the luxury amenities buyers expected in an upgraded model. Acura understood that luxury SUV consumers wanted the SUV but were not going to take the cars off-road. They focused on passenger comfort, cargo room and visibility and the result was one of the biggest interior spaces in the class. The back seat fit three adults in comfort. Cargo loading with the Acura SLX was easier than with many other luxury SUV models. The SLX came with dual swing-out rear doors rather than the usual hatch-style access. The rear doors also had a 70/30 split for even easier cargo loading options.
A moon roof became a standard feature in all trim packages of the 1997 model year. Acura discontinued the premium packages with a 1998 refresh, making most of the features standard on the SLX. Acura also upgraded the SLX engine, restyled the front end and made other changes that made the SLX more similar to the Isuzu Trooper again. The SLX was only available with an automatic transmission and V-6 engine throughout its lifespan. Acura stopped producing the SLX in 1999.
