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.

Traction When You Need It Most

 

The 2018 Acura MDX is well known to Chicagoland drivers. As one of the few three-row luxury crossovers, the MDX stands out from the crowd. Providing loads of cargo space along with standard features like heated front seats and tri-zone automatic climate control, the Acura MDX truly caters to comfort, but safety is where this SUV really shines.

 

Not only does the MDX enjoy a 3.5L V-6 engine capable of up to 290 hp, but it also employs Acura’s Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system, which combines the economy of FWD with the ability to shift up to 50 percent of the vehicles power to the rear wheels when more traction is required. Putting power where it’s needed, when it’s needed, is exactly what SH-AWD is designed to do—keeping you safe and in control. With the available SH-AWD system, low traction environments like snow, ice, and uneven terrain are no match for the 2018 Acura MDX.

2018 Acura RDX AWD

Power Needs Control.

Engage When Necessary

 

The smaller sibling to the MDX, the 2018 Acura RDX seats up to five yet has a powerful 3.5L V-6 engine under the hood worth 279 horsepower 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 2018 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 standard RDX or the fully equipped RDX with Advance Package.

For Driving Enthusiasts Only

 

The 2018 Acura RLX is Acura’s flagship sedan. Known around the Chicagoland area for its striking presence and powerful 310 hp engine, the RLX performs just as good as it looks. Luxury abounds inside its beautifully designed interior from the restyled Milano leather seats with 12-way adjustability to the individual climate zone for rear passengers.

 

For driving enthusiasts who crave even more power, however, the RLX has an available, 377-hp Sport Hybrid model. Anchored by Acura’s Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system, the RLX Sport Hybrid clings to the road no matter the conditions. With three electric motors, the RLX Sport Handling applies power (and braking force) to each individual wheel to maximize traction, working seamlessly with the driver to provide responsive handling on any surface.

 

Whether it’s ice, snow, rain, or gravel, the RLX is right at home. No matter the road conditions, the 2018 Acura RLX will help get you where you’re going with confidence.

All-Weather Advantage

 
With three highly capable powertrains to choose from, including the 2.4-liter inline-4, the 3.5-liter V-6 engine, and the V-6 equipped with Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD), the 2018 Acura TLX is 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 V-6 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, 2018 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.
