This year, more and more of your friends and neighbors are lining up to take a closer look at the 2017 Acura RDX, one of the most exciting luxury crossovers on the road today. At just $35,670 MSRP for FWD models,* the RDX is incredibly affordable. Despite this vehicle’s low price tag, Chicagoland drivers will get more use out of the RDX than they might imagine. With a powerful drivetrain, superior all-wheel drive capability, and a massive, well-equipped interior, the RDX truly has it all. Get a sense of what the RDX can do for you by reading on, and once you’ve seen enough, be sure to reach out and schedule a test drive at Chicagoland Acura Dealers!

Power and Traction in the RDX

There’s no limit to what you can accomplish when you have the RDX on your side. This luxury crossover wants for nothing. Underneath the hood, buyers will encounter a 3.5L port injected V6 engine, a 24-valve, SOHC i-VTEC valvetrain, and a 6-speed automatic transmission. These systems, impressive on their own, become even more useful thanks to the RDX’s variable cylinder management, drive-by-wire throttle control, and  Sequential SportShift paddle shifters. Each of these elements works to maximize your engine output in real-world conditions, and all of them are included as standard features. Both FWD and AWD builds offer 279 hp at 6,200 rpm and 252 lb-ft of torque at 4,900 rpm, and with this much power, nothing will be able to hold you back.

Drivers who equip all-wheel drive—available on every RDX trim level—will enjoy numerous benefits over drivers who forgo this upgrade. For starters, the RDX’s AWD system includes an Intelligent Control System, which utilizes your Acura’s onboard computer in order to maximize your torque and friction in all weather conditions and across all types of terrain. What’s more, the RDX is just as fun as it is useful! An reviewer wrote that “an all-wheel-drive RDX went from zero to 60 mph in 6.5 seconds, making it one of the quickest SUVs in the segment.” Even though all-wheel drive with Intelligent Control allows for more rapid acceleration, it won’t drag down your fuel economy. In normal touring conditions, Intelligent Control directs all of your vehicle’s power to the front wheels, but when you’re slipping or accelerating, it immediately directs power to the rear wheels, too. RDX models with AWD get an EPA-estimated 19 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway.*

Interior Volume, Carrying Capacity, and Towing Power

Even the most powerful crossover isn’t worth much if it doesn’t have what it takes to transport your passengers and your precious cargo. Thankfully, the 2017 Acura RDX offers up to 103.5 cubic feet of passenger space, a easy fold-down 60/40-split rear seatback, and a maximum of 76.9 cubic feet of cargo volume! These measurements are hard to beat, and they make the RDX one of the most useful crossovers available to Chicagoland drivers today. You’ll be able to fit almost anything in the RDX’s cargo bay, but even so, your capabilities won’t necessarily be limited by its size! The RDX possesses a towing capacity of up to 1,500 pounds, so you’ll be able to manage all sorts of equipment and gear when you’re on the move.
