2013 Acura TL priced from $36,800

Article by Christian Andrei, on September 10, 2012

Acura said that its 2013 model year TL has a starting price of $36,800. The TL is just one of two cars that recently received a “good’ rating on the IIHS small overlap barrier test.” The base model TL can be yours for just $36,800. On the other hand, an all-wheel drive TL with a manual transmission costs $44,080.

These prices are inclusive of an $895 destination charge and is a $200 higher than compared to the 2012 model year TL. Even with this price hike, the TL stays unchanged compared to the 2012 model, when it was updated. The entry-level TL is available with a 3.5-liter V6 under the hood with 280-hp and 254 lb-ft of torque. It also got an “EPA estimated 20-mpg city, 29-mpg highway rating.”

Acura offers its models with packages such as the Technology Package for $3,730 (navigation, perforated leather seats, 10-speaker premium audio system) and the Advance Package (heated and ventilated front seats, blind spot monitoring, 18-inch wheels) for $2,200.

Powering the all-wheel drive TL is a 3.7-liter V6 with 305-hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. The Technology Package is perfect for those who want to opt for a manual transmission. The Advance Package gives the customers an all-wheel drive model that leads to 19-inch wheels, since 18-inchers are offered as standard on the all-wheel drive model.

Acura Announces Pricing for 2013 TL

The 2013 Acura TL goes on sale today with a manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) starting at $35,905. Boosting its value on a luxury scale, the TL luxury sedan recently earned the top-level rating of GOOD in the new Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) small overlap frontal barrier crash test.

The new IIHS small overlap frontal barrier crash test is designed to simulate a collision between a vehicle traveling 40 miles per hour and a fixed object, such as a utility pole, where only 25 percent of the vehicle's front structure is engaged by the opposing object. According to a 2009 study by the IIHS, such small overlap crashes accounted for nearly 25 percent of frontal crashes resulting in a serious injury or fatality. The TL was one of only two vehicles to achieve the highest rating of "Good" among a group of 11 models that were the first to be tested under this rigorous new crash test protocol.

The 2013 TL is offered with two drivetrain configurations, a front-wheel drive version and an all-wheel drive version. The front-wheel drive TL is powered by an all-aluminum, 3.5-liter, 24-valve, VTEC® V-6 engine that produces 280 horsepower and 254 lb-ft of torque. The all-wheel drive version of the TL utilizes Acura's Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®) system and comes equipped with an all-aluminum,  3.7-liter, 24-valve, VTEC®  V-6 engine that produces 305 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. Both versions come equipped with a Sequential SportShift 6-speed automatic transmission as standard. For the enthusiast, a 6-speed manual transmission is available for the 2013 TL SH-AWD equipped with the Technology Package.

The 2013 TL comes well-equipped with standard features such as Xenon HID headlights, halogen fog lights, a power moonroof, a 276-watt audio system with 8-speakers, and aluminum wheels, sized at 17x8 inches for the TL and 18x8 inches for the TL SH-AWD. The Technology Package adds features such as an 8-inch VGA display, Acura Navigation System with 60 gigabyte hard disk drive, perforated Premium Leather seating, AcuraLink Real-Time Traffic with Traffic Rerouting™ and 440-watt ELS Surround® Premium Audio System with 10-speakers. The Advance Package adds features such as heated and ventilated front seats, Blind Spot Information System, and upsized aluminum wheels, sized at 18x8 inches for the TL and 19x8 inches for the TL SH-AWD.

Standard safety equipment on all Acura models includes Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with traction control, ABS, dual-stage/multiple-threshold front airbags, front-side airbags, side curtain airbags for all outboard seating positions, front seatbelts with automatic tensioning system and load limiters, Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) and Daytime Running Lights (DRL).

The 2013 TL is produced using domestically and globally sourced parts at the Honda of America Manufacturing Marysville Auto Plant1 in Marysville, Ohio, recipient of the J.D. Power and Associates' Silver Plant Quality Award in its 2012 Initial Quality Study.
