Acura TL

The new Acura TL features new exterior and interior styling, expanded navigation system, satellite communication system and also different safety and security features. The new TL and TL Type-S offer a wide array of performance, comfort and convenience technologies that offer the driver a great experience. The TL receives power from a 3.2-liter 24-valve SOHC VTEC V6 engine capable of producing 258 horsepower and 233 lb. ft. of torque. All the output is being sent to the wheels through a 5-speed Sequential Sport-Shift automatic transmission. The TL Type-S receives power from a 3.5-liter V6 and both units meet the strict EPA exhaust emissions standards. The 3.5-liter VTEC V6 engine is capable of generating 286 horsepower and 256 lb. ft. of torque which is being transferred to the wheels through a close-ratio 6-speed manual gearbox or a 5-speed automatic one with steering wheel mounted F1-style paddle shifters. The two models feature subtle interior and exterior styling differences. Both have fog log integrated into the lower bumper and signature Acura 5-sided grille. Available for the 2008 TL are two new exterior colors, Polished Metal Metallic and Bold Beige Metallic. The TL also features a driver-oriented cockpit with titanium look accents, LED ambient lighting, and spun metal dials. As standard, the carmaker offers power seats for both the driver and front passenger. TL Type-S buyers can select automatic or manual transmission along with available high-performance tires. Acura offers a full line of technologically advanced performance luxury vehicle through a network of 268 dealers within the US.
