Acura Adds Performance-Oriented Manual Transmission Model to 2010 TL Lineup

(continued from above)

After a complete from-the-wheels-up redesign for 2009, Acura aimed to enhance every aspect of the original model. Featuring a stiff unit-body construction with expansive use of high-strength steel (as well as key aluminum components), unique and dramatic exterior styling, a choice of two powerful VTEC V-6 powertrains (280-hp 3.5L and 305-hp 3.7L), Electric Power Steering (EPS), and a luxurious and technologically advanced interior, the 2010 TL sets the benchmark for the future direction of the Acura division.

The 2010 TL is available in numerous configurations including a choice between front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive. And for 2010, the TL SH-AWD is now available with either a Sequential Sportshift 5-speed automatic or an all-new 6-speed manual transmission. However, the special TL 6MT goes well beyond the addition of a new transmission. Acura engineers developed a complete performance package for the 6-speed model that includes numerous enhancements to handling, steering and reliability. Not only is the manual transmission model the best performing Acura TL ever, but it is the top performer in handling amongst every vehicle in its class.

The 2010 TL is a powerful and precise performance luxury sedan that is as confident and composed on a mountain road as it is in the city center. Replacing the previous generation TL's Type-S model is the TL SH-AWD model that is built exclusively for the enthusiast driver. Featuring Super Handling All-Wheel Drive, special suspension and steering tuning, the most powerful engine from Acura ever and an all-new close-ratio 6-speed manual gearbox, the 2010 TL offers plenty of appeal for both commuters and performance enthusiasts. Unlike some sedan competitors that add all-wheel-drive to their vehicle to primarily help in winter conditions, the TL's available SH-AWD was specially designed to dramatically enhance sporty handling in addition to further enhancing the vehicle's winter-driving capability. This means that the TL SH-AWD is inspiring to drive year-round.
