2011 Acura RL
As Honda and Acura continue to grope around in the dark, trying to find their way back to their former position of design leadership, the 2011 models are basically treading water: the ZDX, priced earlier to day, stays unchanged, while the mid-cycle RL adds a few updates but is largely the same as it has been since 2004. Pricing for 2011 starts from $47,200 and runs as high as $55,150.
Three tiers are available: the standard RL, the RL with Technology Package, and RL with Advanced Package. Pricing jumps $4,150 to $51,350 for the tech package and another $3,800 to $55,150 for the "advanced" gear.
Those prices mark a rise of $370 for the base and $900 for the Technology and Advanced packages. What do you get for your extra cash in 2011? All models get a new grille, new wheel designs, a new interior color and wood trim option, and better stitching on the steering wheel. Other upgrades include the addition of available back-up sensors, a revised back-up camera angle, and better hands-free Bluetooth dialing.
