SAN FRANCISCO, CA – Acura dealers can expect a “huge shift” in the next year that will move the brand closer to tier 1 luxury brands, such as Lexus, BMW, and Mercedes-Benz. That was one of the messages that dealers heard during a recent 45-minute Acura make meeting,

The Acura TL and TSX sedans are being redesigned for the 2009-model year and arrive this year. Acura’s flagship, the RL, was just revealed during the Chicago Auto Show with a minor model change.

Acura dealers will learn more product details at the dealership meeting in New Orleans in April.
