The 2019 Acura RDX is more than just the third generation model to the brand, it’s a new beginning. The architecture, design language, and attitude are all clean sheet here. Tom Voelk travels to Whistler, British Columbia, Canada to drive the top trim Advance model. It’s a two-row sport ute that should be high on test drive lists. 😃 SUBSCRIBE ► http://bit.ly/SUB2DRIVEN TURN ON NOTIFICATIONS BY CLICKING THE “BELL” BUTTON AFTER SUBSCRIBING! — FOLLOW TOM VOELK AND GET DRIVEN GEAR! — MY SITE ► http://tomvoelk.com TWITTER ► https://twitter.com/TomVoelk — MORE CAR REVIEW VIDEOS! — Porsche 911 Turbo S ➜ http://bit.ly/2rYfE2B 2012 Range Rover ➜ https://youtu.be/od_tb2CPGIU 2015 Land Rover Discovery Sport ➜ https://youtu.be/oJhw3ukh7Os 2012 Audi A6 ➜ https://youtu.be/B_LHfguP9yQ Dodge Challenger ➜ https://youtu.be/mdexvQSLvfU 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo S ➜ https://youtu.be/mdexvQSLvfU 2017 McLaren 570GT ➜ https://youtu.be/R9aAjldQO6U 2016 Ferrari 488 GTB ➜ https://youtu.be/MzdwLJEuB5s 2016 Lamborghini Huracán LP 580-2 ➜ https://youtu.be/Et74LRlzSm8 2017 Porsche 911 Carrera S Cabriolet ➜ https://youtu.be/zGJjeeK01us About Tom: Tom Voelk is an award-winning automotive contributor to The New York Times.

After years of an identity crisis, Acura takes a giant step forward to remind buyers who they are as a brand. Applying all kinds of new technology, luxury, and performance to the brand's best-selling RDX for 2019. Key improvements include an all-new infotainment system, next generation super handling AWD, and more luxury and technology inside the spacious cabin. Acura was able to do all this while preserving the best aspect of the RDX, the price. Starting at $37,300 and toping out around $48,000 fully loaded, the 3rd generation RDX easily undercuts top European rivals by as much as $10,000 dollars, all while still delivering the luxury and tech by its rivals with the added bonus of strong reliability and resale value that the Acura brand has always delivered.

The 2019 Acura RDX, presaged by the RDX Prototype, has undergone a clean-sheet, top-to-bottom remake and will be the first Acura model to fully embody Acura's new design language as envisioned in the Acura Precision Concept, and its new interior design and technology as imagined in the Acura Precision Cockpit.

New RDX pairs turbo power with 10-speed automatic and Super Handling All-Wheel Drive with torque vectoring.
After teasing us with a near-production prototype at the Detroit show and revisions earlier this month, Acura has fully revealed the 2019 RDX SUV. First I want to say thank you to Acura for not taking as long to roll out the RDX as it did the NSX. That was painful. Then again, while the NSX might be the company’s purported soul, the RDX and MDX are the lifeblood of the Acura brand, representing two-thirds of their sales.
The RDX has done well since its 2013 redesign moved it to conventional V6 power and larger size. This third generation increases the size yet again, but shrinks the engine and goes back to turbo power, now paired with an all-new platform exclusive to Acura. The new platform leverages high-strength and ultra-high-strength steel, ring-frame design, and pairs it with MacPherson strut front suspension, five-link independent rear suspension and available adaptive dampers. The wheelbase is 2.6 inches longer and overall length 2.5 inches longer (108.3 wheelbase and 186.9 length) than the 2018 RDX, which opens up passenger space and grows trunk space by over three cubic feet.
With more mass to carry around, Acura wanted more torque, so replacing the V6 is the 2.0T VTEC turbo we’re starting to see in every Honda product. Direct injection, variable valve timing and turbocharging contribute to 272 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque, down 7 hp, but up 28 lb-ft, and it comes on from 1,600 to 4,500 rpm (previously 252 lb.-ft. at 4,900 rpm), so it should get moving easily. The RDX also uses the new 10-speed transmission Honda developed, which should help with acceleration and efficiency.
