History of the Acura TL

First produced in 1995 for the 1996 model year, the Acura TL was introduced to replace the Vigor. The TL saw initial success, being Acura’s best-selling vehicle up until 2007 when the MDX took over and spent some time ranked second-best in the US among all luxury sedan sales. Through four generations, the vehicle saw numerous upgrades and improvements. The last generation saw a standard 3.5L V6 engine with 280 horsepower as well as an available 3.7L V6 with 305 horsepower. Sales peaked at over 78,000 in 2005, but after a slow decline, Acura decided to cease production of the vehicle in 2014.
