My guess is the wiring harnesses would be different. Maybe someone here has the answer but probably get a better answer from the dealership

Update I bought a 2017 head unit that works perfectly in my 2015. But there was an additional plug slot that I could not plug into

Not looking for the long story but just curious how the Mrs. managed to break the screen. I think they are pretty solid, no?

Any reason for not just getting a 2015 one?

All the controls and everything work as though it was the original 2015 head unit? Including the HVAC system?

Are there any added functionality to the unit or is it just a matter for better hardware and interface?

What trim is your TLX? I have an Advance and the only thing I could possibly think of the extra plug/harness is for possibly the heated/ventilated seats?
