Acura TL 2010 having six-speed manual transmission

The Acura TL always has been a quite nice luxury auto for the money, not considered usually a completely performance alternative on BMW 5-Series. It seems now that the luxury department is taking steps on changing that by the 2010 TL's announcement will be offered featuring the brand new manual six-speed transmission.

This isn't the first time a 6-speed manual is offered by the Acura, there're 2 major distinctions. The first is the all-new transmission with closer ratios on shorter shifts, plus the weight is 110 lbs approximately, less than automatic transmission Sequential SportShift. Second, this' the first time that the manual is available with all-wheel drive system. So, the mix may not look like much now, but the true auto enthusiasts will never prefer the full automatic transmissions, plus the investment of Acura into the manual gearbox signals the first sign in a real war with all the German people.

"The new manual transmission equipped TL SH-AWD® really allows the enthusiast driver to take full advantage of the performance of Acura’s SH-AWD® system," affirmed Dick Colliver, the sales' executive vice president, "Not only is the new manual transmission model the best performing Acura TL ever, it is the top handling performer among every vehicle in its class."
