2019 Acura RDX Changes

The 2019 Acura RDX is all new and has received some exciting changes from previous years’ models. A luxury crossover SUV that is more spacious than ever before, the RDX is “spacious, enjoyable to drive, and loaded with technology,” according to U.S. News & World Report, which ranks the new RDXnumber 1 among luxury compact SUVs. The redesign also outfitted the RDX with a new turbocharged engine that produces a more powerful performance on the road and better fuel economy, making it an all-around top choice for crossover drivers.

  • New turbocharged engine
  • More fuel efficient than ever
  • More comfort and technology features inside


The 2019 RDX boasts a sleek and elegant exterior with bold new styling details. A diamond pentagon grille and a revamped front fascia give the RDX a sportier vibe ready for adventure. And every model of the RDX now comes equipped with a panoramic moonroof so you can enjoy sunny days and moonlit nights.

  • Panoramic Moonroof with Tilt and Slide Feature

Engine and Power

The 2019 RDX swaps out a V6 from previous models and is powered by a new 2.0L VTEC turbo-charged engine that produces up to 272 horsepower, 280 lb-ft of torque, and more horsepower than other competitors. That’s an impressive jump from the 2018 model that produced just 252 lb-ft of torque. The engine works in tandem with a 10-speed automatic transmission and can be equipped with available Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD).

Fuel Economy

The new powertrain in the RDX doesn’t just achieve more power on the road, it’s also more fuel efficient than ever before. The fuel economy will vary slightly depending on whether the FWD or SH-AWD version is better for you, but both achieve a combined 24 mpg — for less frequent stops at the gas station and more time on the road.

  • FWD: 22 city / 28 highway / 24 combined mpg*
  • SH-AWD: 21 city / 27 highway / 24 combined mpg*
