Rumor has it: 2009 Acura RL coming to the Chicago Auto Show

The Acura TL has not seen a redesign since its debut in 2005. Well, according to a posting on Temple of VTEC, Acura could be getting ready to unveil the new redesigned 2009 Acura TL at the 2008 Chicago Auto Show next week. Rumor has it that when the 2009 Acura TSX goes on sale on April 24th, the RL will follow within the same timeframe.

The guys at Temple of VTEC also intercepted what seems to be an official fact sheet of the 2009 RL from Acura.

This MOVE allocation will include March production with March arrival of the 2008 TL, 2008 RDX and 2008 MDX and March production with April arrival of 2009 TSX and 2009 RL models.

2009 TSX

Designed and engineered to reaffirm its place as a desirable and affordable entry point for the Acura sedan range, the all-new redesigned second-generation 2009 TSX will be offered in two different packages

Standard Package:
· The standard model will be similar to RDX”s and 08MY TSX”s standard features with new luxury amenities and audio capabilities that all contribute to the new TSX”s added appeal.

Technology Package:
The technology package is similar to the RDX”s technology packaging and will continue to “Advance” the image of Acura. The Technology Package includes:
· Acura Navigation System with Voice Recognition with new functionality
· AcuraLink Satellite Communication System
· Acura/ELS Surround Premium 10 Speaker Sound System

2009 RL

The substantial redesign of the 2009 Acura RL combines added performance, improved technology, more aggressive exterior styling and even greater safety to a top-tier luxury performance sedan.

Three packages will continue to be offered:

Standard Package:
· Improvements include better functionality for the HVAC, HandsFreeLink and audio system
