Product Overview

Acura TL 4 (chassis code UA8/UA9) is an executive sedan in production from 2008 to 2011, whereupon it received a facelift. It was available with two V6 engines that displaced 3.5 and 3.7 liters.
Compared to the TL 3, the Gen4 Acura TL has a very similar design that is a little quirky but certainly unique. For the first time, AWD became available in the form of SH-AWD. Powered by a 3.7L J37A4 V6 engine, it replaced the Type-S version from TL 3. This version is available with both manual and automatic transmissions.
The base model used a 3.5L V6, which is mated to an automatic transmission.
Drivers who appreciate handling will be pleased to know that the Acura continued to equip the TL 4 with double-wishbone and multi-link suspensions. While unusual for a FWD vehicle, this setup offers superior handling characteristics than a normal strut setup.
