The Acura SLX was a midsize SUV sold by Acura from 1996 to 1999, the SLX was based on an upgraded Isuzu Trooper. At first the SLX was made available with a 3.2 Liter gas burning V6 with a maximum output of 190 HP and was upgraded in 1998 to a larger 3.5 Liter gas burning unit that made 215 HP. The Acura SLX was not a popular model in the U.S. due to the vehicle’s tendency to roll over. The SLX was replaced by the Acura MDX in 2001 as the Japanese luxury automaker’s SUV offering.
