The current-generation Acura TL has been around since the 2009 model year and a successor is due soon, most likely badged as a TLX. To help keep interest in the current model alive, Acura is giving plenty of incentive for buyers via the launch of a special edition model.

Introduced late in the 2013 model year, the new  Acura TL Special Edition is priced from $38,300, including an $895 destination fee.

This slots it in just above the base 2013 TL, which is listed from $36,800, including the same  $895 destination fee, but it comes with plenty of standard goodies that make it quite the deal.

The TL Special Edition features distinctive 18-inch alloys as standard, along with a deck lid spoiler and Special Edition badging. Four exterior colors are available for this model: Bellanova White Pearl, Crystal Black Pearl, Graphite Luster Metallic and Silver Moon Metallic.

The car also gets standard keyless access with pushbutton start adds and leather trim with contrast stitching. Owners get two key fobs that each have a memory function so that things like the driver's seat, steering wheel, exterior mirrors and climate and audio settings are all automatically adjusted as soon as the driver’s door is opened and the particular key fob recognized.

Other goodies include a power moonroof, eight-speaker stereo, Bluetooth connectivity and a central display screen for the infotainment system.

As with all TLs, power comes from a 3.5-liter V-6, rated at 280 horsepower and 254 pound-feet of torque. Drive on this model is sent to the front wheels only, via a six-speed automatic.
