Have you been wondering how the Acura SH-AWD system differs from other
"Haldex style" AWD systems? In this video I explain how Super Handling All
Wheel Drive differs from Audi's Quattro, BMW's x-Drive and the other
transverse AWD systems on the market.
Aside from the fact that Honda/Acura doesn’t have a RWD drivetrain to
borrow, the benefit main benefit to a transverse engine layout is improved
“Super Handling All Wheel Drive” may not have been the best name for
the system, but it is arguably the best AWD system you can tack onto a
transverse FWD platform. The systems used by Infiniti, Lexus, Volvo,
Lincoln and just about everyone out there that had an AWD system tacked
onto a transaxle has no center differential. Instead the power flows from
the final gearset of the transmission to the front diff and the rear diff
via gears at a fixed 1:1 ratio. Between this gear arrangement and the rear
diff is a clutch pack that allows the car to connect, disconnect or have a
varied connection between the transmission and rear axles. When fully
connected the power is split 50/50 assuming all wheels have traction.
SH-AWD also uses the same arrangement but adds a unique differential unit
in the rear that does two things. First, it has a gearset to “speed up”
the rear wheels so that when they are connected, they spin 1.7% faster than the fronts. (The old RL used a
variable ratio system but it is no longer used.) Next it has a torque
vectoring unit that is capable of slitting power 100:0/0:100 left to right.
In a straight line, “overdriving” the rear wheels gives the MDX a more
RWD feel than otherwise possible and in corners the system is capable of
sending up to 70% of the power to the outside rear wheel helping the
MDX’s cornering manners and masking the “plowing” tendencies normal
in a front heavy car. For 2014 Acura took this a step further and uses a
system to brake wheels selectively to improve neutral handling. This is
beyond stability control because the system is always active rather than
active only when things are going pear-shaped.
Acura TL Exhaust Comparison ATLP versus XLR8
ATLP and XLR8 are truly the most popular Exhaust brands for the 04-08 Acura TL. While
they are both excellent systems, they have very different appearances and
sounds. This video from Heeltoeauto.com shows you the distinct differences
between them. Buy either on Heeltoeauto.com!
Test Drive: 2010 Acura TL SH-AWD 6-Speed
With the demise of the NSX, the TL 6-speed soldiers on as the quickest
vehicle in the Honda/Acura line-up until the RLX Sport-Hybrid goes on sale.
Those of you looking for a hidden gem should pick up a remaining 2014 model
before they're all gone.

Video Tour of 2014 Acura TL Tech in Bellanova White Pearl
A video Review Tour of the 2014 Acura TL Tech in Bellanova White Pearl for
Exterior with Ebony Interior Sports Sedan.
This the the last year that Acura is making the TL. The new TL will be
combined with the TSX called TLX for 2015 Model Year.
Since I'm both a TSX and TL fan, I decided to opt for the TL so I'm making
this video to highlight my new sports car.
Please note the windows are tinted 50% front and 20% rear.
This vehicle with the V6 engine FWD outputs 280HP with torque at
The ride is very firm and handling is it's strengths. I'm able to achieve
23.5mpg with city/highway driving.
The handling is more firm and stable compared to Honda Accord V6. It's more
roomy than the Infiniti G37 sedan. It handles way better than the Lexus
I'll give you a tour of the exterior and interior as well as show you the
engine bay and trunk.
All minor issues with the paint and garnish are taken care by Acura and
outside body shop now.
This vehicle is classified as a mid-size luxury sedan.
Long live Acura TL.
Please check it out the video.

http://www.Facebook.com/2Redline The ugly stick had quite an effect on
Acura's once best-selling TL. Thankfully, the company has done a great job
with refining the look to bring back customers scared away by the
controversial styling. Once you get past the exterior, you will find a
comfortable, roomy, refined, and tech laden cabin that will have most
shoppers quite impressed. If you are in the market for a spacious, sport
luxury sedan with strong value, this TL should be at the top of your list.
