Check the following 2010 Acura TL Video out!

The new 2010 Acura TL comes in two varieties: a base front-wheel drive car and an up-level all-wheel drive model. The front-driver will be powered by a 285 horsepower 3.5L V6 whereas the AWD model will receive its motivation from a 3.7L V6 producing 305 horsepower. Both models will use a five-speed automatic transmission.

Despite boasting 305 horsepower and all-wheel drive, the range-topping model will not sport the Type-S nameplate but will be distinguished by quad exhaust. In fact, Acura will not offer a Type-S model, at least not in 2009 or 2010. It remains unclear if the performance model will eventually join the lineup.

Starting at $34,995 for the base model TL, the Technology Package will bump that bottom line up to $38,685. Adding all-wheel-drive and an extra 0.2 liters to the V6, the TL SH-AWD will start at $38,505. The Technology Package-equipped TL SH-AWD runs $42,235. Finally, a TL SH-AWD with the Technology Package and available 19 inch wheels tops out at $43,235. Those prices include a $760 destination charge.

The all-wheel-drive TL SH-AWD model is powered by a slightly larger 3.7L V-6 and carries a larger price tag. Both versions can be outfitted with the optional technology package.Motivation for the base model comes from a 3.5-litre V-6 that’s essentially the same one used in the previous generation TL Type-S, albeit with 280 hp and 254 ft-lbs of torque. Powerful and efficient (EPA fuel economy estimates are 18/26 mpg city/highway), the 3.5 meets Tier 2 Bin 5 emissions standards thanks to drive-by-wire throttle, computer-controlled fuel injection and VTEC technology on the intake valves.

The TL SH-AWD gets a bigger, more powerful 3.7-litre V-6 (from the MDX SUV) that boasts 305 hp and 275 ft-lbs of torque with VTEC on both the intake and exhaust valves, along with a special high-flow dual exhaust system. Fuel economy ratings are EPA estimated 17/25/20 mpg (city/highway/combined).
