Acura already confirmed that there will be two versions of the new TL, but now we know the actual specs. The base car features a 280 horsepower 3.5L that sends the power to the ground through the front wheels. The model were excited about is the top of the line TL which features Acura’s SH-AWD system that is mated to a 305 horsepower 3.7L V6. Reportedly the Type-S name is now gone. Both engines are mated to five-speed automatic transmissions with paddle shifters.
The new TL features many of the same styling cues as the new TSX and RL, although the TL takes it a step further (check out the rear end). The 2009 TL is also 6.2 inches longer and gains a 1.4 inch longer wheelbase than the last generation.
Do you think the TL still holds the title of the best looking Acura sedan?
