Acura CL information:

Introduction

Acura CL is a coupe from Honda’s Acura brand. Manufactured from 1996 to 1999 and 2001 to 2003, it was initially a replacement for Acura Legend coupe. In 1996, Honda introduced Acura TL, which replaced the Vigor. The Acura CL is in effect a TL coupe. Acura CL’s were built in Marysville, Ohio at Honda’s plant. Acura CLs were based on TL and Honda Accord and were manufactured along with these two models at Honda’s Marysville, Ohio plant. It is the first Acura to be built in the United States. After model year 1995, Acura Legend coupe was discontinued with the sedan version being rechristened Acura RL. Acura CL is not a successor to Legend coupe as CL has a different chassis from RL which is still made in Japan. CL was launched in 1996 after a year from the launch of the Acura TL. With the release of TL and RL in model year 1996, Acura moved on to alpha numeric model naming patterns.
