Hi all, I picked up my '06 TL last week and have a question that wasn't
answered to my satisfaction by the sales guy. Why was 2005 TL rated at
270HP while the '06 is rated at 258HP? The dealer says they implemented a
new policy that all car companies will have to adhere to at some point when
disclosing HP, he didn't explaim the policy. Are they rating it from a
point other than the crank? Did they ever measure from the crank. I assume
more than 12 HP would be lost in the drive train.
The HP of the car has not changed. Only the way they are allowed to
measure it. ie. using oil that would void the warranty and other
cheating methods to boost the number are no longer allowed. The 2005
would likely be given the same rating on the new system.
