Acura unveiled only one image of the brand new TL a few shorts weeks ago, but more pictures have been leaked before the official revealing of the sport sedan. In addition to some new photos, a few of the auto’s tech details have been revealed also.
The redesigned Acura TL 2009 will come this fall in showrooms. The luxury sedan model will be available in 2 distinctive variants including the very first application of SH-AWD (‘Super Handling All-Wheel Drive’) on the TL auto.
The TL continues the new design language of Acura seen on the changed TSX and RL, having a bold front grille treatment. And outback, the TL appears to have a rear fascia inspired by the Accord model, but the design is kind of exaggerated and could very well polarize some of the potential clients.
The interior of the TL is apparently less controversial featuring a few arches on the design language.
This new TL will be found in two guises: the base front-wheel drive auto and the up-level all-wheel drive unit. The front-driver runs with a 285 horsepower V6 3.5L whereas the AWD vehicle will be receiving its motivation right from a V6 3.7L delivering 305 horsepower. So both units will be using a 5-speed automatic transmission.
This SH-AWD vehicle will sport quad-exhaust plus 18 inch wheels, differentiating it from the lesser TL units. The spy photo clearly is showing the auto’s all-new rear differential SH-AWD also.
Acura promised a brand new TL by the end of this year so a Auto Show in Los Angeles unveil seems quite likely, having a date on-sale shortly after that.
