2012 TL Unveiled at Chicago

Looks a little better, but still do not want. Kinda looks like they are trying to work some 3G TL back into it.





Although it debuted just three years ago for the 2009 model year, the Acura TL has been treated to a new look and a new six-speed automatic transmission for 2012.

Gone is much of the old TL’s controversial “power plenum” front fascia and in its place is a new, sharpened beak and an updated tail end. Acura says that the TL is now more aerodynamic than before, which helps it improve its fuel economy.

In addition, a new six-speed automatic transmission replaces the outgoing five-speed unit, which aids in dramatically increasing the car’s highway fuel economy to 29 mpg, a big 3 mpg jump over the outgoing model. City fuel economy is 20 mpg with a combined figure hovering around 24 to 25 mpg.

Both the outgoing 3.5 and 3.7-liter V6s return for the new model year. The 280-pony front-wheel-drive TL comes exclusively with the six-speed automatic, while the 305-horse all-wheel-drive TL SH-AWD will be available with either the automatic or a returning six-speed stick. Base TLs come with 17-inch alloy wheels, while TL SH-AWDs come standard with 18s. A new Advance Package for the TL SH-AWD adds 19-inch alloy wheels with performance all-season tires.

Both models can be optioned up with Acura’s Technology Package, which adds navigation and an ELS audio system. For 2012, the navigation system comes with a larger hard drive (now 60 GB) with more map coverage, faster USB connection speeds and richer colors for the VGA monitor.

All-new ventilated front seats and a blind spot information system also come with the Technology Package for 2012.

Re: 2012 TL Unveiled at Chicago

I have to admit, I like these cars. I HATED the 4G at first, but it has really grown on me. And with a little love, it can look great... the biggest thing is you simply must paint the "beaks", and tinting the tails doesn't hurt:




(FYAH TL's car on Azine)


I think the car looks great.

I'm sorry but I really haven't like the past two TL's. They are odd looking and look as if they should be driven by my mother

Solid effort to clean up Acura's mistakes with the 4th Gen TL.
