Acura RDX Horsepower and Torque

Four 2020 Acura RDX packages allow you to suit features and fittings around your own unique needs, but power and performance never fall below top-tier standards. Every trim level comes fitted with a turbocharged and direct-injected 2.0L Turbo Aluminum-Alloy 4-Cylinder engine. Step on the gas and you’ll command:

  • Up to 272 hp
  • Up to 280 lb-ft of torque

That kind of output delivers sharp performance wherever you take the RDX. As written by Edmunds: “It’s light and makes for easy maneuvering in parking lots but also firms up appropriately at higher speeds to give you a feeling of control.” Properly equipped, you’ll also boast an Acura RDX towing capacity of up to 1,500 lbs.

Acura RDX MPG Ratings

Two drive types give you the freedom to adapt Acura RDX performance around your own style. Options include:

  • Front Wheel Drive (FWD): Comes as standard for a focus on efficiency.
  • Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®): Available across all trims for a combination of conventional all-weather, all-terrain control and enhanced high-performance dry-road handling.

A 10-Speed Automatic Transmission with Sequential SportShift Paddle Shifters refines power delivery with both models to ensure:

  • Up to an EPA-estimated 22 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway*
  • Up to an EPA-estimated 21 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway*

All packages come with an Idle Stop feature that saves fuel by cutting off the engine automatically when you come to a stop and then seamlessly restarting when you push down on the gas.

Acura RDX Performance Features

Acura RDX performance draws on more than just the engine and transmission. A whole symphony of further systems work through every drive to help you make the most of every mile.

Features include:

  • 4-Mode Integrated Dynamics System (IDS): Cycle between Comfort, Sport, Sport+ IDS, and Snow driving modes to adapt steering, throttle response, and more around your changing needs and wants.
  • Grade Logic Control: Instructs your transmission to hold gears at a higher rpm on a steep uphill or downhill grade to ensure dependable control.
  • Sophisticated Suspension: MacPherson Strut Front Suspension and Multi-Link Rear Suspension come fitted as standard for a smooth and composed ride.
  • Adaptive Damper System: Sharpens handling and optimizes comfort by adjusting suspension stiffness changes in a split second.
  • Agile Handling Assist®: Active braking on individual wheels helps avoid oversteer or understeer as you corner.
  • High-Performance All-Season Tires: All models come fitted with high-end tires as standard for flawless traction through all seasons.

Acura RDX Active Safety Features

Acura RDX safety features enhance performance as well as boost peace of mind, and active safety features are responsible for helping you maintain full control over the vehicle at all times. Features include:

  • Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control and Motion Adaptive Steering
  • 4-Wheel Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS)
  • Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD)
