Exclamation 2012 Acura TL MMC



Just a few days ago we received a tip that Acura's mid-cycle refresh (MMC) of the TL was operating on an accelerated timeframe. In fact, the word is that the MMC 2012 TL will be hitting showrooms in April 2011, or nearly a half year ahead of the typical fall date.

In support of this info, we already have a couple of spyshots from Brenda Priddy's crew, showing a camo'd TL undergoing testing. Little is visible through the camo, but for the past year or so Acura brass have spoken of refining (toning down?) the Power Plenum, so that's likely what the camo is covering up. Mechanically, we are expecting Acura's latest 6-speed automatic transmission to replace the current 5-speed unit. Acura and Honda have also been working on a new family of V6 engines, but we haven't yet heard which model(s) will be the first to benefit from the advanced designs.

Arrow Bigger Lights

I am probably in the minority here in thinking that the front & tail lights should be larger. Particularly the red & yellow "dagger" parts. This would bring it more inline w/ the rest of the lineup & I think would match the car better bc everything else is so big & bold & the lights are kind of dainty in comparison.



In otherwords, make it look more like:
