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.

2018 Acura MDX SH-AWD

Put Performance in Your Sights.

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.

2019 Acura RDX SH-AWD

An Exhilarating Drive.

Power at Your Palms

 

Acura’s RDX may be the smaller sibling to the MDX, but it’s big on performance features necessary for Chicagoland’s changing seasons. The all-new 2019 RDX sports a 10-speed automatic transmission to complement its 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. And back by popular demand, Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) is available on any trim, ideal for rugged terrain, city streets, or icy Midwestern roads.

 

SH-AWD will boost performance by determining the best power distribution between the front and rear wheels—and between the rear wheels individually. In a hard acceleration, the SH-AWD system transfers nearly half of the engine’s power to the rear for maximum traction. And when cornering, the system keeps RDX stable by applying torque to the outside wheels where the weight has shifted.

 

Remarkably intuitive, if the SH-AWD system detects any threat of oversteering or understeering, it maintains stability by redirecting power among the wheels. Additionally, Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control and Motion Adaptive Steering stabilize the vehicle before you’re even aware there’s a problem. Yet, for all the performance enhancing features, full manual control is at your fingertips with Sequential SportShift Paddle Shifters and Electronic Gear Selector. And to ensure every drive is a safe one, all 2019 RDX models are equipped with AcuraWatch, a suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies.

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.

2019 Acura TLX SH-AWD

Designed to Amaze.

Performance Meets Protection

 

The 2019 TLX lineup features three, highly capable powertrains, including the 2.4-liter inline-4 and 3.5-liter V6 engine equipped with Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD), the Acura TLX is versatility on wheels. Spacious yet sporty, affordable yet luxurious, TLX is always ready to amaze.

 

Available with the V6 option, the sophisticated SH-AWD system provides an all-weather advantage by determining the best power distribution among the wheels. By directing engine power to match weight distribution, available traction, driver input, and other factors, you’ll maximize performance and fuel efficiency under normal road conditions when up to 90% of the torque is sent to the front. During hard acceleration, up to 45% of the power is sent to the back wheels, and when cornering, the TLX directs as much as 70% of its torque to the rear wheels.

 

If you want to opt out of automatic, manual control is at your fingertips with Sequential SportShift Paddle Shifters and Electronic Gear Selector. Choose from Comfort, Sport or Sport+ driving modes to gain at-a-touch control while traveling on steep uphill / downhill grades, accelerating through curves, or starting on hills.

 

High performance and safety join forces on every 2019 TLX with Vehicle Stability Assist to minimize the dangers of oversteering or understeering, while the AcuraWatch suite of driver-assistance technologies ensure your high-performance ride is a protected ride, too.
