Acura rl 2012 Gets 6-Speed Automatic Transmission
First there were rumors that Honda would axe the Acura RL, and then came the official word that it wouldn�t, but here is the first sign that the RL continues to carry on � even if the car has become irrelevant.
While it�s not official for North America, Honda in Japan has announced that the Acura RL (still sold as the Legend there) will get a refresh for the 2012 model year that includes a new 6-speed automatic transmission. This may help the RL pick up a few extra buyers as the added gear should help improve both fuel economy and acceleration. Then again, perhaps its just a bigger sign of how irrelevant the RL is when the supposed luxury car is only now getting a 6-speed transmission � something Ford offers on the $13,000 Fiesta.
A selection of other upgrades and trim changes for the RL are made for 2012, plus it gets a unique new invention: an in-wheel silencer that is designed to absorb road imperfections.
No changes are slated for the 300-hp 3.7-liter V6 engine.
If anyone at Honda is listening, we�re certain the addition of a more Honda-like grille (rather than the Acura beak) would help sell a few extra cars here as well.
