2011 Acura RL: official details, photos and specs

Article by Christian A., on December 14, 2010

Acura revealed today the 2011 model year of the RL sedan, its most technologically advanced vehicle which promises to set the benchmark for the innovative use of customer-relevant technology. First of all, the car comes with a new 3.7L V-6 engine delivering 300 hp and 271 lb-ft of torque, and mated to a Sequential SportShift 6-speed automatic transmission. Thanks to the new transmission, the 2011 RL delivers a fuel consumption of 17/24/20 city/highway/combined - an increase of 2 mpg in highway driving.

Regarding the design, the car features a new front grille and an athletically styled body, offering enough capabilities that allow it to challenge the most capable German and Japanese sports sedans. Inside, the car features a new interior color (Sea Coast), new Dark Burlwood textured trim, improved feel thin-thread stitching for the steering wheel and a new bright silver color for the dash meters.

Some of the new technologies introduced for the 2011 model include the back-up sensors, a revised back-up camera angle to improve rearward visibility and improved dialing function for Bluetooth HandsFreeLink. As expected, the 2011 RL will be available in three versions: RL, RL with Technology Package and RL with Advance Package.

Other improvements for the 2011 year model include Super Handling All-Wheel Drive, leather trimmed interior, power actuated front seats, leather-wrapped multi-function steering wheel, dual-zone automatic climate control system, power moonroof, power windows, Acura/Bose Surround Sound audio system, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink connectivity and a Multi-Information Display (MID) that allows easy access to multiple electronic functions.

The Technology Package offers a satellite-linked Acura Navigation System with Voice Recognition, AcuraLink Real-Time Traffic with Traffic Rerouting, AcuraLink Real-Time Weather, rear view back-up camera, back-up sensors, Active Front Lighting System (AFS), ventilated front seats, and a simulated burlwood accented steering wheel and shift knob.

The RL with Advance Package includes Acura's Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), power folding side mirrors and genuine maple wood instrument panel trim. RL models equipped with the Technology Package also feature the Active Front Lighting System (AFS) for the Xenon High-Intensity Discharge (HID) headlights that swivel up to 12 degrees laterally in response to vehicle speed and steering wheel input.
