Default 2013 Acura RDX

What's New for 2013

The 2013 Acura RDX will be fully redesigned, getting a new look, a new engine, improved fuel economy and a revised all-wheel-drive system.


For 2013, the Acura RDX gets a complete overhaul. A naturally aspirated 3.5-liter V6 engine replaces the former turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder, and Acura promises better power and best-in-class fuel economy from the new engine. We always welcome more power, although the former turbo-4 was no slouch. It made 240 horsepower, but did so at the expense of fuel economy. By comparison, the new V6 makes 273 hp. Paired with a six-speed automatic transmission, the new powertrain is expected to deliver 20 mpg city/28 mpg highway in front-wheel-drive models.

The new RDX will also offer the all-wheel-drive system from Honda's CR-V, retuned by Acura for better performance. Acura says the new system is lighter and costs less than the outgoing SH-AWD system offered in the 2012 RDX. It's probably a smart move on Acura's part, although the enhanced handling capabilities provided by SH-AWD helped the RDX stand out in this segment, and such will no longer be the case for 2013.
