2017 Acura RDX Performance Capabilities


If you’re looking from more in your next compact SUV than something that merely covers the bases, look to the 2017 Acura RDX, which delivers a truly engaging and inspired performance. Each model of this luxury crossover comes equipped with a robust V6 engine, an available fuel-efficient all-wheel drive system, and surprisingly agile handling for a vehicle in this segment. Before taking it for a test drive, though, get the intel you need from Joe Bullard Acura.

Impressive Powertrain

The 2017 Acura RDX comes powered by a 3.5L i-VTEC® V6 engine that generates an impressive 279 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque, making it one of the more powerful models in the compact SUV segment. In fact, an all-wheel drive model is capable of moving from 0 to 60 mph in only 6.5 seconds. The Acura RDX is also capable of towing up to 1,500 pounds behind it. Each model comes standard with a six-speed automatic transmission.

Fuel-Efficient All-Wheel Drive with Intelligent Control System™

Drivers in the market for a crossover SUV that will give them more confident handling and sure footing on the road, all while still enjoying strong fuel economy, will want to opt for the Acura RDX’s available All-Wheel Drive with Intelligent Control System™.

This smartly designed system maintains operation in front-wheel drive mode during normal cruising conditions with all torque being sent to the front wheels. When you accelerate moderately, up to 40 percent of torque can be sent to the rear wheels, and when you’re experiencing road conditions with poor traction, up to 50 percent of torque can be sent to the rear wheels. All of this helps the Acura RDX achieve a noteworthy EPA-estimated 27 mpg highway and 19 mpg city with all-wheel drive, just one mile per gallon shy of the front-wheel drive version, which gets 28 mpg highway and 20 mpg city*.

Precision Handling

The focus on control doesn’t stop with the all-wheel drive system either. The Acura RDX features Amplitude Reactive Dampers that are able to provide greater stability and decrease vibration created by road surfaces. The RDX also promises drivers surprisingly responsive yet firm steering, as well as a reassuring feeling of control when taking corners at higher speeds.
