Acura All-Wheel Drive Vehicles

Wisconsin drivers already know the power of all-wheel drive in the winter, but it can do more than help you safely traverse slick or snowy roads. Acura crossovers with all-wheel drive—like the RDX and the MDX—are ready to go off-road at a moment’s notice for a weekend adventure. And sport sedans like the TLX V6 and RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD deliver new levels of control thanks to their available AWD systems. Let’s take a look at what each of these Acura vehicles can do for you.

Performance Knows No Limits.

Make the Most of All the Horsepower

 

The MDX is the best-selling three-row luxury SUV of all time for many reasons. The biggest contributing factor to its best-selling reputation, perhaps, is its responsive handling. Every 2019 Acura MDX comes standard equipped with Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) with Traction Control and Motion Adaptive Steering, Agile Handling Assist, and an Integrated Dynamics System (IDS) that features three distinct driving modes. But this technology is only the beginning.

 

Joining a 3.5L 290-hp engine, all 2019 MDX models can be outfitted with class-defining, available Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD), which enhances traction during slippery road conditions as well as everyday driving. This torque-vectoring system distributes power between the front and rear wheels—and between each rear wheel—based on real-time analysis of the vehicle’s performance and driver’s actions. Needless to say, Wisconsin’s unexpected rainstorms and challenging winters no longer stand a chance against such a sophisticated all-wheel drive system.

 

On slippery surfaces, SH-AWD proactively sends power to the wheel with the most traction. During lane changes, SH-AWD increases stability by transferring power to the inside rear wheel. Through the turns, SH-AWD distributes up to 70 percent of engine torque to the rear wheels, while the aforementioned torque-vectoring system can actually send up to 100 percent of that torque to the outside rear wheel for confident cornering. For straightaways that don’t require additional traction, SH-AWD will send up to 90 percent of engine power to the front wheels for better fuel economy.

 

The SH-AWD system gives MDX a clear advantage over the competition. With 290 horsepower, 267 lb-ft of torque, and a 5,000-pound towing capacity, SH-AWD helps harness MDX’s power to increase performance during any driving scenario. Whether its accelerating through sharp turns or navigating icy roads, the 2019 Acura MDX might be one of the most sure-footed luxury SUVs in its segment.

2019 Acura RDX SH-AWD

An Exhilarating Drive.

Power at Your Palms

 

Acura’s RDX may be the smaller sibling to the MDX, but it’s big on performance features necessary for Wisconsin’s changing seasons. The all-new 2019 RDX sports a 10-speed automatic transmission to complement its 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. And back by popular demand, Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) is available on any trim, ideal for rugged terrain, city streets, or icy Midwestern roads.

 

SH-AWD will boost performance by determining the best power distribution between the front and rear wheels—and between the rear wheels individually. In a hard acceleration, the SH-AWD system transfers nearly half of the engine’s power to the rear for maximum traction. And when cornering, the system keeps RDX stable by applying torque to the outside wheels where the weight has shifted.

 

Remarkably intuitive, if the SH-AWD system detects any threat of oversteering or understeering, it maintains stability by redirecting power among the wheels. Additionally, Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control and Motion Adaptive Steering stabilize the vehicle before you’re even aware there’s a problem. Yet, for all the performance enhancing features, full manual control is at your fingertips with Sequential SportShift Paddle Shifters and Electronic Gear Selector. And to ensure every drive is a safe one, all 2019 RDX models are equipped with AcuraWatch, a suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies.

2019 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD

Not All AWD Is Created Equal.

Designed to React

 
Utilizing some of the same technology found on board the NSX supercar, the 2019 Acura RLX and its Sport Hybrid SH-AWD system is one of the most advanced all-wheel drive configurations on the road today. This system is designed to react to the driving conditions, as well as the driver’s input, instinctively supplying torque in situations that call for added acceleration, response, and handling.
 
The 2019 RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD consists of three electric motor units, a strapping V-6 engine, and a quick-shifting 7-speed Dual-Clutch Transmission. These components work together for a total output of 377 horsepower and 341 lb-ft of torque—not to mention 28 combined city/highway mpg.*
 
From highway cruising to slick road conditions, the Sport Hybrid SH-AWD system gives drivers the upper hand in nearly any driving scenario. Dramatic acceleration comes courtesy of the rear Twin Motor Unit (TMU), which provides instant torque vectoring when the RLX is at a standstill. During cornering, the same TMU also transfers torque side to side between the rear wheels, independently applying positive or negative torque to each wheel as needed; therefore, tightening the vehicle’s line and precisely tracing the driver’s desired path.
 
The Sport Hybrid SH-AWD system makes easy work of Wisconsin’s slippery, winter weather conditions by monitoring the RLX’s speed, wheel spin, driver input, and other factors to instantly distribute power to the wheels with the most traction or send negative torque to a specific wheel for increased stability. Whether you’re navigating snow-covered streets or dry pavement, this electric-torque-vectoring, all-wheel drive system keeps the RLX strongly connected with the road ahead.

2019 Acura TLX SH-AWD

Designed to Amaze.

Performance Meets Protection

 

The 2019 TLX lineup features three, highly capable powertrains, including the 2.4-liter inline-4 and 3.5-liter V6 engine equipped with Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD), the Acura TLX is versatility on wheels. Spacious yet sporty, affordable yet luxurious, TLX is always ready to amaze.

 

Available with the V6 option, the sophisticated SH-AWD system provides an all-weather advantage by determining the best power distribution among the wheels. By directing engine power to match weight distribution, available traction, driver input, and other factors, you’ll maximize performance and fuel efficiency under normal road conditions when up to 90% of the torque is sent to the front. During hard acceleration, up to 45% of the power is sent to the back wheels, and when cornering, the TLX directs as much as 70% of its torque to the rear wheels.

 

If you want to opt out of automatic, manual control is at your fingertips with Sequential SportShift Paddle Shifters and Electronic Gear Selector. Choose from Comfort, Sport or Sport+ driving modes to gain at-a-touch control while traveling on steep uphill / downhill grades, accelerating through curves, or starting on hills.

 

High performance and safety join forces on every 2019 TLX with Vehicle Stability Assist to minimize the dangers of oversteering or understeering, while the AcuraWatch suite of driver-assistance technologies ensure your high-performance ride is a protected ride, too.
