Acura RDX 2016 reviews
Under the hood of the upcoming 2016 Acura RDX buyers won’t have an option to choose between two engines anymore. The heart of this crossover will be a 3.5-liter V-6 engine that will produce 273 horsepower and 251 lb-ft of torque. It will be paired with 6-speed automatic transmission and power will be transferred to front wheels as standard. The Acura RDX 2016 with all-wheel-drive system will be only available as an option even with higher trim levels. We expect smaller improvements when we talk about fuel consumption. The current RDX with AWD has EPA estimated fuel consumption rated at 19/27 mpg city/highway while fuel consumption for FWD is rated at 20/28 mpg city/highway.

The Acura RDX 2016 price will be in range of current RDX and MDX and that is between $35,000 and $42,000 depending on chosen trim level.
