2011 acura rl Reviews and News

2011 Acura RL
2011 Acura RL
The RL is Acura's flagship model and there is not much to ask from Acura after you see all of the advanced options and safety features packed into this passenger vehicle. There is plenty of power for drivers who love that extra edge. The RL has a V-6 engine that is pushing 300 horsepower. This vehicle uses the torque vectoring super handling AWD system that Acura has nicknamed SH-AWD. This powerful handling system give the driver complete control over the RL in any driving condition imaginable.

In 2011 the RL has some new features for buyers including a much anticipated 6-speed automatic transition and boosted fuel economy. The exterior styling is very similar, but it has received a few minor body changes too. There are not really any other competitors in this cars class, unless you consider the Acura TL which offers a similar vehicle at a much lower price tag and what some consumers believe to be a more attractive vehicle. The TL's days may be limited as Acura talks about removing it from their line-up altogether to leave this vehicle to steal the show.

We journalists tend to dismiss the RL based on more or less abstract standards - it's not pretty enough, not sporty enough, not premium enough. But I suspect real owners absolutely love it. And why shouldn't they? The RL is quick, comfortable, quiet, and likely more reliable than many of its sexier European competitors.

By the sales figures alone, Acura's RL appears to be a model not long for this world. In 2010, sales of the company's premier sedan amounted to only 2037 cars, making the sedan its slowest-selling model in the U.S. Despite that meager total, Acura remains committed to the nameplate

The Acura RL is a car I hadn’t driven or thought much about in years, and judging by its sales numbers, I have plenty of company. Speaking in round numbers, only 2000 of Acura’s flagship sedan left dealer lots last year. Compared to the RL, the Volvo S80 is a hot item with 5000 sold; the Jaguar XF and the Lexus GS trounce it with 7000 sales; the Audi A6/S6 blows it away with 9000 sales; and it only gets worse from there.
If any Acura needs updating, the RL does. With styling and technology stuck firmly in the current decade, Acura has decided to give the model a nose job and a new six-speed transmission for 2011, confirming our earlier report.
The Honda Legend, sold as the Acura RL on our shores, is getting a mid-model change redesign in Japan.
