Another model that we’re going to see in Chicago during the Auto Show is the redesigned 2009 Acura RL luxury sedan. It’s not the Acura concept we’ve told you about in January, but just as good, because this time it’s looking stunning. The shield shaped front grille really helps.
Acura RL should use a SOHC 3.7l V6 engine with VTEC variable valve timing, that is pushed by 300 hp, has a five-speed automatic transmission and features the Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive technology we’ve seen before and Acura’s new Collision Mitigating Braking System (CMBS).
Other improvements that are worth mentioning are on the inside because navigation means weather and traffic updates via XM satellite radio this time, adaptive cruise control or active front lighting.
Let’s hope we won’t see other Acura problems for the RL model that should be available this spring.
