2018 Acura RDX Packages Washington D.C.

Side profile 2018 Acura RDX

Where are the trim levels? If you’re familiar with the automotive space, you likely know that most brands offer different hosts of features that fit under a different trim, sometimes called a grade. That’s what the random assortments of letters mean on the back of a vehicle. The problem with this method? How are you to know which vehicle is right for you when there are four different options, all priced differently and with names that don’t capture the key differences.

This is where the 2018 Acura RDX packages offer a better buying experience for shoppers in the Washington D.C. area. Instead of trim levels, you have one standard model that can have additional packages of options added on. Best of all, the titles help make it obvious what you’re getting, with the RDX offering AcuraWatch Plus, Technology or Advance packages. The first puts the focus on driver’s assistance, the second has a focus on audio and infotainment improvements and the last is your top trim with a combination of everything to enhance comfort and convenience.

Standard features in the 2018 Acura RDX

Before you decide on packages, you’ll want to know what the 2018 Acura RDX will have in the core package. That is to stay, what comes standard? Key highlights include:

Obviously, Acura isn’t a brand that leaves you hanging when it comes to standard features, which means that the packages only serve to make the vehicle even better. It’s a focus on features, but the model will have the same 3.5-liter V6 with a 279 horsepower and 252 pound-feet of torque output. The model is available in both front-wheel and all-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters is also standard. You don’t have to concern yourself with upgrading unless you’re determined to have the best of the best for comfort because you already know every option is offering it mechanically.
