The powerful 3.5-liter i-VTEC® V-6 engine produces an impressive 273 horsepower and 251 lbs.-ft. of torque, while the refined Variable Cylinder Management (VCM II) system and low-friction technology produce class-leading efficiency.
Variable Cylinder Management™ (VCM®) automatically changes the V-6 engine to run on six, four or three cylinders, depending on driving conditions, resulting in significantly improved highway fuel efficiency.
The 6-speed automatic transmission Sequential SportShift paddle shifters gives you the best of both worlds by providing the convenience of precise and intuitive automatic shifting as well as shift-for-yourself control.
The RDX all-wheel drive system is designed to help maximize the use of available traction in both dry and slippery conditions, while minimizing system-wide friction and power loss to help optimize fuel efficiency.
The RDX front strut and rear multi-link suspension systems are tuned to provide a combination of secure handling and exceptional ride. The RDX is also the first Acura model equipped with uniquely designed shock absorbers known as Amplitude Reactive Dampers.
The new electronic power steering provides a smooth, linear transition between the generous power assist at low speeds and a firmer feel at higher speeds.
Since performance driving requires precision braking, the RDX features a firm pedal feel with linear response and is backed by 4-channel anti-lock brakes, Electronic Brake Distribution and Brake Assist systems.
The less flex there is in the body, the more precisely the suspension can be tuned for an optimal combination of handling and ride. Now, Acura has taken the impressive first-generation RDX body structure a step further.
While developing the second-generation RDX, one of our primary goals was to make the vehicle more enjoyable for both driver and passengers by reducing noise, vibration, and harshness.
