For the first time ever in an Acura vehicle, the 2009 TL will be available with a choice of two different VTEC engines while also offering both front wheel drive and all-wheel drive. Standard models with a 3.5-liter V-6 will start at $35,775, while the TL SH-AWD models with 3.7-liter V-6, which also come with Acura's Super Handling All-Wheel Drive, will go for $39,265.
Both versions will have an available technology package containing features like a navigation system, remote start, and a back-up camera. This package will raise the cost of each version to $39,445 and $42,995 respectively. The TL SH-AWD with the technology package can also add a high-performance summer tire package and 19-inch alloy wheels raising its price to $43,995.
The TL will go on sale at Acura dealerships on September 24, while the all-wheel drive models are set to arrive in mid-November.
