2005 RL Won't be FWD

"Infiniti's successful makeover is prompting its Japanese rivals to move more aggressively to spruce up their luxury lines..."

"Honda Chief Executive Takeo Fukui says that the company is aware of the criticisms and that the new version of the company's flagship RL sedan, due out next year, won't use front-wheel drive -- though he won't say whether the car will be all-wheel drive."
