The RL is Acura's top model, a lavishly equipped full-size sedan, packs a powerful engine and an intelligent all-wheel-drive (AWD) system which can disburses the engine's torque not only to wheels fore and aft but the left or right ones too. RL's aluminum V6 plant, displacing 3.5 liters with drive-by-wire throttle and VTEC (Variable valve Timing and lift Electronic Control) system, nets 290 hp for 2006. All muscle from this engine is controlled through a five-speed Sequential SportShift automatic transmission with paddle shifters mounted on the steering wheel.

Acura creates an optional Technology Package for 2006 RL issues that installs a Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS) with grille-mounted radar unit, motorized seatbelt pretentioners and automatic braking system. Other features of the package include Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and Michelin PAX Run-Flat Tires.

RL also carries as standard gear an adaptive front lighting system (AFS) with xenon high intensity discharge (HID) headlamps.
