When it comes to power, the Acura RDX delivers big. A 3.5L SOHC i-VTEC V6 engine comes standard, producing 279 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque and providing towing muscle that can handle up to 1,500 pounds.
This mighty engine also features Variable Cylinder Management, which significantly bolsters fuel efficiency and helps the RDX achieve up to an EPA-estimated 20 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway.* Variable Cylinder Management works by shutting down half of the engine’s cylinders when that additional power isn’t needed. This transition from six cylinders to three is so smooth drivers likely won’t even notice it has occurred—but that boost in fuel efficiency certainly won’t go unnoticed!
The RDX’s V6 engine comes paired with a standard 6-speed Sequential SportShift automatic transmission, which provides multiple driving modes and gives motorists the best of both worlds: the convenience of automatic transmission and the control of manual transmission. In Sport Mode, paddle shifters enable full manual control.
An Unforgettable Ride
Various components come together to deliver a supreme driving experience onboard the Acura RDX.
The vehicle’s suspension systems include a MacPherson strut design up front, which bolsters durability, and a multi-link rear suspension for enhanced comfort and handling. The RDX was also one of the very first Acura vehicles to feature Amplitude Reactive Dampers, which are offered once again in the 2017 model and are also now included across the full Acura vehicle lineup. These advanced dampers are designed to facilitate outstanding ride comfort and handling, no matter the driving conditions.
All-wheel drive with Intelligent Control is available for the RDX and helps the vehicle make the most of available traction while also controlling friction and power loss. This system further adjusts engine torque production and distribution as road conditions change.
Drivers and passengers will additionally enjoy a blissfully quiet ride onboard the RDX thanks to noise-reducing features like standard Active Sound Control; a floating front sub-frame structure with reinforced mounting points; and the use of Thinsulate in the inner fenders, door lighting housings, and spare tire pan.
