2013 Acura RDX Gets More Power, More MPG

Like the recently unveiled 2013 Nissan Pathfinder, Acura isn’t ready to call the 2013 RDX on display at the Detroit Auto Show a production model just yet. However, it’s still a good look at what the all-new performance-oriented crossover is going to look like when it arrives in showrooms later this year.

The new RDX will be quite a bit bigger than the current model, but the biggest change is what’s under the hood. Acura is ditching the RDX’s current turbocharged four-cylinder unit in favor of a 3.5-liter V6 engine producing 273 horsepower. Despite two more cylinders and more horsepower, the compact crossover is also expected to become more efficient, with anticipated EPA fuel economy ratings of 20 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway.

At first glance, the new RDX is more wagon-like, as it’s not quite as tall as the current model. However, for 2013 it will get a longer wheelbase and a wider track, which should help it deliver a far better ride. Acura says the RDX’s interior will also be extremely quiet, thanks to ample use of of sound deadening materials.
