Although the Chicago Auto Show is still a few weeks away, we are already starting to get information about product debuts. One such report comes from the fine folks at Acura.

Following the slight refresh of the TSX at the Los Angeles Auto Show, Acura has announced plans to unveil a “refined” 2012 TL in the Windy City. While automaker talk is somewhat difficult to translate, “refined” could very well mean “redesigned” in this instance. Look for this 2012 model to address the TL’s polarizing looks (specifically its shield nose).
There isn’t much more info than that, but look for more news as the show approaches. And as usual, we’ll be covering all the other comings and goings at this years Chicago Auto Show.
