Acura today announced pricing for the all-new 2009 TSX sports sedan that will officially go on sale in the U.S. on April 24th. The completely redesigned TSX will be available in two versions, the standard TSX and the fully-featured TSX with Technology Package. Pricing for the entry-level model is $28,960 and the TSX with the technology pack will set you back $32,060.

Two transmissions are available, both as standard equipment, a 6-speed close ratio manual and a Sequential SportShift 5-speed automatic with a new lock-up torque converter assembly and F1-style paddle shifters.

The only engine available in the new car is an all-aluminum DOHC i-VTEC four-cylinder with dual balance shafts for extra smoothness and direct ignition technology to reduce fuel-consumption. Displacing 2.4L and producing 201hp and 172lb-ft of torque (with manual transmission), the new mill produces its useable power across a much wider rpm range than the engine in the previous model.

Standard features include leather trim, a power moonroof, HID headlights, Bluetooth handsfree and a premium sound system with XM satellite radio and USB connectivity. Upgrading to the Technology Package gets you a voice activated satnav, Zagat restaurant information, AcuraLink realtime traffic information and journey rerouting services, a rearview camera and a 10-speaker audio system.

Destination and Handling is not included in the sticker price and for the 2009 TSX remains unchanged at $715.
