2012 TL MMC coming in the spring? And is this the first spy shot?

Just a few days ago we received a tip that Acura's mid-cycle refresh (MMC) of the TL was operating on an accelerated timeframe. In fact, the word is that the MMC 2012 TL will be hitting showrooms in April 2011, or nearly a half year ahead of the typical fall date.

In support of this info, we already have a couple of spyshots from Brenda Priddy's crew, showing a camo'd TL undergoing testing. Little is visible through the camo, but for the past year or so Acura brass have spoken of refining (toning down?) the Power Plenum, so that's likely what the camo is covering up. Mechanically, we are expecting Acura's latest 6-speed automatic transmission to replace the current 5-speed unit. Acura and Honda have also been working on a new family of V6 engines, but we haven't yet heard which model(s) will be the first to benefit from the advanced designs.
