2009 Acura TL

One’s the loneliest number, but seeing as we were sent a sole image of the all-new 2009 Acura TL, it’ll have to do.

Completely re-designed for 2009, Acura’s mid-sized luxury sedan features a front end and styling similar to the redesigned 2009 TSX and RL sedans. Perhaps most prominent is the new Acura corporate grille, a cue originally seen on the Advanced Sedan Concept from the 2007 Los Angeles auto show.

Acura plans on offering the car in both front- and all-wheel-drive configurations, the latter model equipped with Honda’s SH-AWD system. Other powertrain information is scant, but Acura claims the car will be offered with the brand’s “most powerful engine ever.”

Expect more details on the 2009 TL to emerge when it goes on sale this fall.
