Side profile of the 2019 Acura RDX Prototype

When a model gets a redesign, it’s almost like an entirely new vehicle is heading into the lineup. The Acura research and development department has clearly been stirring up great ideas, as you can see with the reveal of the 2019 Acura RDX Prototype. Here at your Washington D.C. area dealership, we’re excited not only be the fresh looks that fall in line with the athletic upgrades we’ve seen in other updated models, but the vehicle will exhibit even more of the Precision Crafted Performance upgrades that make Acura fun to drive.

As the next-generation model is still in the prototype phase, exact release information isn’t confirmed. We don’t know the performance specs of the 2.0-liter DOHC direct-injected engine with a low-inertia mono-scroll turbo, though it should deliver up to 40 percent more torque than the current engine. What we do know is that the model will not only have a 10-speed automatic transmission and available performance features include a new Adaptive Damper System and the return of the available Super-Handling All-Wheel-Drive system.

2019 Acura RDX Prototype shows a ground-up redesign

Next model year is an important one for the Acura RDX because it’s not just a minor refresh, but a complete redesign. The model is heading into its third generation, and the vehicle is one of the top selections for Acura shoppers. This means any new decision is especially important for the lineup.

We’re confident Acura has its bases covered when it comes to performance, but ease and excitement behind the wheel is just part of the luxury experience. These days, it’s easy to find vehicles with a variety of bells and whistles, so Acura has to stay at the top of its game when it comes to innovative technology. Chief among them is the new Acura True Touchpad Interface. It’s a more intuitive unit than ever, featuring an Android-based operating system and a dual-zone 10.2-inch HD display. It has both a traditional touchscreen which modern drivers are already accustomed to using, and a more intuitive remote touchpad that makes it simpler to activate features without taking your eyes off the road.

Other modern elements to be found in the upcoming 2019 Acura RDX, which will be released in mid-2018, include a floating center console, power sport seats, Napa leather, brushed aluminum trim with open-pore Olive Ash wood, a panoramic sliding moonroof, The Acura ELS Studio 3D system and a cost of AcuraWatch driver assistance features.
