There are two versions of rumors about 2018 Acura RDX. First source says that vehicle is coming slightly revisited, and pretty much the same as current model. On the other hand, there are opinions that 2018 RDX is coming redesigned. In both ways, we can expect exciting SUV with many options. However, since Acura is luxury branch, a lot of premium features will be installed. Nevertheless, company didn’t confirm either information. That puts fans on needles, waiting for official statement. Well, patience is the key, since release could happen during first half of 2017.
2018 Acura RDX engine
Current vehicle is using 3.5-l V6 engine as powerplant. If redesign doesn’t happen, we can see same unit under the hood of the 2018 Acura RDX. However, it is not so good for upcoming model, so tuning is expected. We are sure high performance will come from crossover. Other possibility is new 2.0-l drivetrain with support of electric batteries. In combination with 3 motors, total output can reach 350 hp. Turbocharged 3.5-l V6 is also mentioned, if hybrid variant is going to be too expensive. Aiming 350 hp mark, this could be very powerful option.
2018 Acura RDX platform
The 2018 Acura RDX could be built on the new platform. If this happens, this crossover will share concept with Honda CR-V. However, Acura is luxurious brand, so expect much more elegant stuff. Also, comfort is important, and we are sure that designer won’t make savings on it. This crossover will improve noise reduction. Decreased vibrations also improve driving impression. There is also another unclear situation, because some info claims SUV is coming as seven-seater. Company officials considered possibility, and it seems like this can happen when new generation is started.
2018 Acura RDX price and release date
Premiere of the crossover could happen during next year. Some rumors say even in first part. But, if 2018 Acura RDX is going to be part of new generation, we could wait longer for it. Base model of current vehicle costs $36,000. We believe that company will try to maintain this amount for upcoming SUV. However, even in new generation, it won’t be more expensive than $40,000.
