2017 Acura RDX
The Acura RDX received a mid-cycle refresh in 2016, gaining a host of refinements that persist unchanged into the 2017 model year. Externally, the RDX now presents restyled front and rear fascias, featuring Acura's signature Jewel Eye LED headlights, LED taillights and a new grille treatment. The 3.5-liter V-6 engine has been massaged and now outputs 279 horsepower. Variable Cylinder Management cylinder deactivation technology helps the RDX increase its highway EPA fuel-economy rating by 1 mpg for both front and all-wheel drive models. Now, all RDX models now also have the option to add the AcuraWatch suite of driver-assistive technologies, including adaptive cruise control, collision mitigation braking and lane keeping assist.
