The 2014 Acura TL: Plenty of Horsepower and More
Are you wondering about the horsepower of the 2014 Acura TL? The luxury sport sedan comes equipped with a 3.5L V6 engine that can crank out an impressive 280 hp and 254 lb-ft of torque, which is enough to give you the exhilarating performance for which this model has become known over the years.
If you’re shopping around, you may have notice that you can get a bit more horsepower from the 2013 Infiniti G37 Journey — but you should be aware that those few extra horses come at a great cost. Read on to learn why the TL outclasses the G37 across the board.
Acura Comes Out Ahead—By a Wide Margin
First thing’s first: the 2014 TL comes with standard paddle shifters. Not only do they give you as much control as you want when you’re tearing up the roads, but their presence is the mark of a performance-oriented sedan. It’s quite telling, in other words, that the Infiniti G37 does not come with paddle shifters as standard.
Furthermore, the TL’s impressive efficiency more than makes up for a couple of horses. A 2014 TL equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission is capable of achieving 20 mpg city/29 mpg highway/23 mpg combined.* The G37 Journey, meanwhile, will give you 19 mpg city/27 mpg highway/22 mpg combined. It’s not much, but it adds up in a big way over time.
There’s also a significant difference in price. The 2014 Acura TL with six-speed automatic transmission starts at $36,030, while the starting price of the G37 Journey comes to $37,350.
The TL outclasses the G37 Journey in terms of features, too. Some of the features that are standard on the TL and either optional or not available at all on the G37 include:
- Power moonroof
- CD changer
- Auxiliary audio jack
- Surround sound
- Remote-activated perimeter ilghting
- Front armrest storage
With plenty of features and horsepower, the 2014 Acura TL distinguishes itself from the competition. To learn more or to take a test drive, stop in to a Chicagoland Acura dealer — and come prepared to be amazed.
