2010 Acura TL 3

The new 2010 Acura TL has been announced just shy of the Frankfurt Motor Show. Starting under the hood, one of the most important new features that grabbed our attention is the introduction of an optional manual six-speed transmission with a rigid aluminum case and heavy-duty internals. The manual gearbox is intended to replace the existing Sequential Sportshift five-speed automatic for those who’d much rather have the stick to dictate the rpms. Another upgrade is the new clutch that works smoothly with either the 3.7-liter V-6 engine that outputs 305 hp or the 3.5-liter that sports 280 hp and comes with a 18/26 mpg for city/highway mileage.  The new Acura TL SH-AWD model should be priced at around $42,385.
