We received an e-mail today with the following contents. This source is new to us, so use this info at your own risk until we hear from others that they too received this communique.

UPDATE 20:06 We've just been informed (from another source) that the TL will be the first vehicle to get SH-AWD with a 6-speed manual transmission, but the 6MT version won't be available until the 2010 model year. The rest of the information seems pretty solid for the moment.
Quote:
1. UA8269JW 5AT. Base model with 17" wheels / 3.5L 280HP
2. UA8659KW 5AT. Technology Package, Navi and Smart key (push button)
3. UA9629JW SH-AWD (like the Base model but with SH-AWD and 18" wheels) / 3.7L 310HP
4. UA9659KW SH-AWD and Technology Package / 18" wheels
5. UA9659KXW Just like previous model + 19" wheels and summer tires...

The J35 that came in the RL was such a pig with AWD but I always felt that the tranny had so much to do with it. I'd love to see how the new TL feels with the J35, AWD, and 6MT. Hopefully they don't make the car too big. Some of the mules look like air craft carriers.

Oh man, this is sweet news!

I had a 06 TL 6 speed, and it was blast to drive and had very nice gadgets!

I really don't like Acura's new designs( nEW TSX), but the 4th gen TL will be, no doubt, an awesome car for the money.

Problem is, the TL looks the same, if not worse, than the new TSX. Looks like the car went through a cheese grater and didn't quite make it through the other side.
