Acura’s other big release for 2007 is a revamped TL sedan. Besides minor interior and exterior enhancements, the TL gets a new trim level — the high-performance Type-S.
Unfortunately, the base TL doesn’t see any power gains over last year’s 258-hp, 3.2-liter V-6, but both models receive an enhanced five-speed automatic. The Type-S does get a larger V-6 that produces 283 hp and comes with either the five-speed automatic with steering-wheel-mounted shift paddles or an optional six-speed manual transmission. There’s also a limited-slip differential in Type-S models with the six-speed manual.
Inside there are new seats and a new three-spoke steering wheel.
The 2007 model sees only the smallest revisions to the exterior, most noticeably around the front grille area. Type-S models see a special black chrome grille, rear spoiler, unique taillights and 10-spoke alloy wheels.
Stay tuned for pricing but plan to see the 2007 TL at dealerships later this fall.
