Acura All-Wheel Drive Vehicles

We think most of our Chicagoland drivers already know the benefits of an AWD Acura vehicle when winter hits, but all-wheel drive does more than give you confidence in the snow and on icy roads. If you plan on taking that MDX or RDX out camping, Acura’s available all-wheel drive options can give you the torque needed to make it through muddy or uneven terrain with ease. It’s no coincidence that the RLX and TLX sedans’ all-wheel drive upgrades are also paired with engine upgrades.

Ideal Power Distribution

 

The 2017 Acura MDX is one of the last great three-row luxury crossovers available. Featuring seating for up to seven and a spacious cabin, this Acura is ready to take the kids to school in the mornings or move them off to college. Just fold down those rear seats for more cargo space.

 

One of the hallmarks of a truly versatile crossover SUV is all-wheel drive, and the MDX makes Acura’s Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) available at every level of the vehicle. Paired to a powerful yet efficient 3.5L V6 engine, the MDX SH-AWD can shift up to half of the 290 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels for added grip.

 

Recent innovations to SH-AWD have helped the system shed 25% of its weight to make its impact on fuel economy almost negligible. By continuously determining the ideal power distribution between the wheels, SH-AWD is able to transition engine power where it’s needed, when it’s needed (and to know when driving in fuel-efficient, FWD mode is best).

2017 Acura RDX AWD

Power Needs Control.

Engage When Necessary

 

The smaller sibling to the MDX, the 2017 Acura RDX seats up to five yet has a powerful 3.5L V6 engine under the hood worth 279 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque. The RDX has All-Wheel Drive with Intelligent Control available, automatically switching from FWD to AWD when it detects a loss of traction on the front wheels—say when you’re commuting to the loop during a snowy Chicago winter.

 

RDX AWD models have an advantage over traditional AWD systems put forth by competing brands, as they only engage when necessary. While sending engine power to all four wheels all the time might sound appealing, the truth is that it’s just a drain on the fuel economy. AWD with Intelligent Control and SH-AWD both circumvent this to deliver control while barely affecting fuel efficiency.

 

Like any good Acura, the RDX is one of the most comfortable crossovers in its class, featuring dual-level heated front seats, automatic climate control, and advanced connectivity features as standard. And all models can be equipped with AWD, whether you want the basic RDX or the fully equipped RDX with Advance Package.

2017 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD

Welcome To The Industrial Evolution.

Equal Parts Power & Luxury

 
Acura’s flagship sedan, the 2017 Acura RLX is equal parts powerful and luxurious, with the standard model coming equipped with the Technology Package from the get-go. Of course, some drivers demand more than a 310-hp V6 engine paired to a SportShift automatic transmission with paddle shifters. That’s why the 2017 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD exists.

 

Many drivers hear “hybrid” and think “slow,” but the RLX is a different story. By pairing that 310-hp V6 engine with three electric motors, the RLX Sport Hybrid delivers an effective combined power of 377 hp. For added control on the street or the track, the RLX Sport Hybrid also comes with SH-AWD.

 

Like the MDX and the TLX, the RLX’s SH-AWD system senses where torque is needed and sends it there immediately. We call it “torque vectoring,” and it’s a feature that is unique to the SH-AWD system. When an RLX enters a curve, the SH-AWD system will actually spin the outer wheels more quickly to help rotate the car through the curve—the system does this automatically and doesn’t require you to accelerate through the turn for the effect.

All-Weather Advantage

 
Available with either a 2.4L 4-cylinder or a 3.5L V6 engine, the 2017 Acura TLX is also one of the most versatile cars in its segment. Spacious yet sporty, affordable yet luxurious, the TLX can be an ideal choice for nearly any kind of driver. The V6 models are not only more powerful and eager to hit the track, they are available with Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) as well.

 

Putting all-wheel drive of any kind on a sport sedan has a twofold benefit: improved traction in poor conditions and superior control over the vehicle. The sophisticated SH-AWD system is designed to improve dry-road handling just as well as it provides an all-weather advantage. For improved fuel efficiency, 2017 TLX SH-AWD models send as much as 90% of their traction to the front wheels when cruising.

 

If the system detects weight shifting to the rear (hard acceleration), it transfers up to 45% of engine power to the back wheels for superior launching power. During a hard turn, the TLX can direct as much as 70% of its torque to the rear wheels—even to just the rear outside wheel—for some of the fiercest cornering on the road.
