2019 Acura RDX Prototype Washington D.C.

Side profile of the 2019 Acura RDX Prototype

The face of the family vehicle has changed from the domesticated minivan, to a vehicle that most drivers can enjoy. In fact, you might find yourself interested in an SUV whether you have a family or not. Acura is well-aware that the appeal of the RDX extends beyond practical roominess needs into a feeling of comfort and luxury as you shed the unwelcome feeling of claustrophobia too-often associated with smaller models. Now, the 2019 Acura RDX Prototype has been revealed to give us hints at what will be coming to us here at your Washington D.C. area dealership in the not-too-distant future.

Though current information for the 2019 Acura RDX is from the prototype, we expect the full redesign to offer a similar appearance. It took a decade for Acura to perfect its design DNA, and we can’t imagine much changing when it comes to appearances. As it heads into its third generation, the RDX will have a wider track, longer wheelbase, the diamond pentagon grille and a dynamic, sculpted body.



Engine Specs in the 2019 Acura RDX Prototype

There are a few things you consider when it comes to luxury vehicles, and performance is one of them. After all, economy brands tend to be a bit underpowered compared to the Precision Crafted Performance offers from Acura.

The 2019 Acura RDX Prototype features a 2.0-liter 16-valve DOHC engine with a low-inertia mono-scroll turbocharger. Exact engine specs are not available at this time, but the Prototype does boast a 40-percent increase in low-end torque compared to the 2018 Acura RDX engine.

To get the most from the engine, the 2019 Acura RDX Prototype also offers a 10-speed automatic transmission for a smooth, quiet driving experience.

Returning for 2019 for the first time since the first generation RDX is the Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive system. Those who prioritize agility and traction will love to see the return of this option along with the availability of a new Adaptive Damper System inspired by the Acura NSX.
