2011 model year changes
After a major refresh in 2009, there's not much new in the RL for 2011. The most notable change is the addition of a new 6-speed transmission, as well as a revised front grille. In addition, Acura has also fitted the 2011 RL with Hemholz resonators in the wheels, which in turn help reduce vibration and interior noise. The RL achieved 5-star ratings in all NHTSA crash tests, including the rollover test. Acura claims it's the only luxury automaker to do so.

Special features for 2011
Standard all-wheel drive stabilizes the car around corners, which is a nice thing to know with the 3.7L V6 under the hood. This is the kind of Acura technology that has earned the RL reviews for being quiet and surefooted, as well as quick and refined. The luxurious interior is very well insulated, and the Bose sound system adapts its volume to the speed of the vehicle.
