Acura’s Twitter account Acura_Insider just posted a photo of the refreshed 2011 Acura RL. 

Now I could be out of the loop, but this is the first photo I’ve seen of it. The image isn’t the greatest quality, but you can still see it has the a new grill similar to the 2011 TSX. 

I don’t know of the other exterior changes, but the 2011 should get the 6-speed automatic transmission and possibly 18 inch wheels equipped with wheel silencers and an upgraded navigation display/system.
