Customize Your 2018 Acura RDX: Trim Levels and Packages

Everyone’s favorite luxury crossover SUV is back! The newly redesigned 2018 Acura RDX will seem broadly familiar to drivers who’ve experienced the models of previous years, and according to the writers at The Car Connection, it offers, as always, “an above-average blend of value, sophistication, and safety.” The 2018 RDX keeps the celebrated 3.5L V6 engine of previous years, and what’s more, the newest version contains even more of the convenience-enhancing features that Wisconsin drivers love. When you take advantage of the RDX’s numerous available trim levels and packages, you’ll come into possession of a vehicle that behaves precisely according to your desires, and comes equipped with everything you could ask for! Each of your options is broken down in detail below.

2018 Acura RDX Standard Build

Priced at just $35,800 MSRP for FWD models,* the 2018 Acura RDX is one of the most affordable options in the luxury crossover SUV segment, but despite its attractive price tag, the new RDX is anything but spare. In addition to the 3.5L engine we mentioned above, this SUV’s drivetrain contains a 24-valve, SOHC i-VTEC valvetrain, a 6-speed automatic transmission with Sequential SportShift paddle shifters, and variable cylinder management that helps to maximize fuel economy. All-Wheel Drive with Intelligent Control is available on all trim levels, but even without this upgrade, the 2018 RDX manages to produce 279 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque.

Even this standard build comes equipped with a wide variety of features that busy drivers are sure to appreciate. These include a remote-linked power-operated tailgate, a power moonroof, Jewel Eye LED headlights, a multi-view rear camera, leatherette-trimmed sport seats, and a 7-speaker Premium Audio sound system.

The AcuraWatch Plus Package

Acura’s engineers take safety very seriously, and this year, they’re offering the RDX with AcuraWatch Plus for just $37,100 MSRP for FWD models.* Over and above the safety features present in the Standard Package, AcuraWatch Plus offers technologies that span the following:

2018 Acura RDX Adaptive Cruise Control

Adaptive Cruise Control: ACC takes the stress out of any commute by letting your RDX respond automatically to the flow of traffic. Take advantage of this system’s Timed Distance setting to determine exactly how your SUV will behave on the road, and let the RDX’s cameras and computers take care of the rest!

2018 Acura RDX Collision Mitigtation Braking System

Collision Mitigation Braking System: CMBS provides an additional line of defense against surprises on the road. When your RDX’s front-facing camera detects an obstacle in the road, it engages the brakes automatically to keep you and your passengers safe.

2018 Acura RDX Lane Keeping Assist

Lane Keeping Assist: This system was designed to make your life just a little bit easier. When you’re on the road, it will keep an eye trained on the road’s dividing lines and provide gentle reminders when you’re in danger of straying from the straight and narrow.

The Technology Package

The RDX Technology Package is priced at $39,500 MSRP for FWD models,* and you’ll be amazed at the features that come standard on this model. Here, sport seats with a perforated leather interior replace the leatherette-trimmed seating mentioned above, and drivers will also receive GPS-linked, solar-sensing, dual-zone automatic climate control.

In addition to these desirable comfort features, the Technology Package includes an On-Demand Multi-Use Display (ODMD), the Acura Navigation System, voice recognition/Siri compatibility, a 10-speaker ELS Studio Premium Audio System, and much more!

With this upgrade, a blind spot information system and a rear cross-traffic monitor are also included standard, and dynamic guidelines are added to the RDX’s multi-view rear camera. Drivers who choose the Technology Package can enjoy even more safety features by adding the AcuraWatch Plus package to their build for a total price of $40,800 MSRP (FWD models).*

The Advance Package

With the Advance Package equipped, the 2018 RDX is priced at $42,500 MSRP for FWD models,* but drivers can rest assured: This trim level’s incredible array of amenities makes it well worth the increased cost! Subtle-but-satisfying elements like an auto-dimming rearview mirror, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and remote engine start capability all make their first appearance here, and what’s more, the Advance Package also includes fog lights alongside front and rear parking sensors. Heated and ventilated front seats complement the RDX’s already-remarkable suite of comfort features, while standard 18-inch alloy wheels give this model a distinctive look and feel.
