The Acura SLX was a mid-size sport utility vehicle (SUV) sold by the Acura division of Honda from 1996 to 1999. It is actually a re-badged lightly upgraded Isuzu Trooper and it was only sold in the United States. The SLX was later replaced by the Honda Odyssey-based Acura MDX in 2001. The Honda Pilot was an SUV that was also based on the Odyssey-derived MDX platform.

Acura SLX -- 12-18-2009

1996-1997 Acura SLX

The SLX received a restyled front end for the 1998 model year, but continued to sell poorly and was ultimately discontinued after 1999. It is said that sales were affected by bad press when the 1996-1997 models were rated "Not Acceptable" by Consumer Reports for their tendency to roll over during testing. In a lawsuit brought by Isuzu against Consumers Union, the court found that some of the magazine's statements showed a "reckless disregard" for the truth.

The SLX from 1996 to 1997 had a 3.2-liter V6 gasoline engine with a maximum output of 190 hp and was replaced in 1998 by a 3.5-liter dual overhead cam V6 engine that produced 215 hp.
