Introducing the 2018 Acura RDX

By Justin Cupler | July 12th, 2017

Available now in our showroom is the new and improved 2018 Acura RDX. A crossover that’s as powerful as it is stylish, the RDX is a sophisticated family vehicle with a polished exterior and refined handling. It’s a pleasure to drive around town or to pack up for road trips. Take a look at some of our favorite details and then stop in today for a test drive!

Under the hood is a 3.5-liter, naturally aspirated i-VTEC® V-6 engine that’s standard on all three trim levels and it’s paired to a six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters on your steering wheel. You’ll have 276 horsepower to work with as well as 252 lb-ft of torque to get you off the line faster. Front-wheel drive comes standard, but you can upgrade to all-wheel drive in the top two trim levels for a smoother ride. With an athletic frame and sporty suspension and tuning, you’ll feel more like you’re behind the wheel of a race car than an SUV so that you can turn your daily commute into something more exciting than the daily grind.



Inside the RDX is a plush and spacious cabin that has plenty of technology to keep you comfortable and entertained for your entire journey. The quiet cockpit provides excellent lumbar support in the front for those who need it and the back seats can sit three adults comfortably, making this a vehicle suitable for road trips for up to five adults. And with the roomy trunk space as well as clever cubbies tucked away throughout the vehicle, you and your crew will be able to bring everything along with you. There’s also keyless entry, remote start, and a power tailgate that make your entire driving experience seamless and unobstructed.

And you can drive with confidence thanks to the AcuraWatch™ suite of technologies available individually at the base level or standard on the higher two trims. With features like Adaptive Cruise Control, Collision Mitigation Braking System, and Forward Collision Warning, you can seek to prevent accidents before they happen. And stay alert to your position on the road with Lane Departure Warning and Lane Keeping Assist System so you are always on track. This popular crossover is as safe as it is stylish.

Stop into Acura of Rochester today to test drive the new 2018 RDX model and find your reason to love this vehicle. It’s swift, comfortable, and competent on the road – and you can be too.
