2019 Acura RDX Video, First Look

Making an appearance at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show, the 2019 Acura RDX rides on a brand-new, Acura-exclusive platform that is dramatically stiffer and lighter than the model it replaces. The wheelbase has also been stretched 2.5 inches and the crossover has a 1.2-inch wider track. The major news here is the Acura RDX is the first model to fully embrace the Japanese automaker’s new design language, which first debuted on the Precision Concept. It will also be the brand’s first crossover to be available in A-Spec trim, offering a sportier for shoppers.

Powering the RDX will be a new 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, but output figures have not yet been revealed. Acura however, did say it will have 40 percent more low-end torque than the current 3.5-liter V6, which offers 279 horsepower and 252 pound-feet of torque. What has been confirmed is a 10-speed automatic transmission on all models.

2019 Acura RDX Will Usher in a New Era for the Brand

As the most extensive Acura redesign in over a decade, the 2019 Acura RDX signals the beginning of a new era for the brand. The crossover will launch mid-2018 and is the first in a new generation of products from Acura featuring the Japanese automaker’s new design language, Precision Cockpit-inspired premium cabin, and groundbreaking True Touchpad Interface.

Along with the standard RDX, the company will unveil the new RDX A-Spec, the first application of the sport appearance variant to an Acura SUV. The model also marks the return of Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) to the RDX lineup, pairing it with a 2.0-liter turbocharged VTEC engine and a 10-speed automatic transmission. Acura is also claiming it will be the quickest and best-handling RDX yet, thanks to the NSX-inspired Integrated Dynamics System.
