Cultivated crossover

2017 RDX

Engineered to serve as the ideal work or family crossover, the 2017 Acura RDX brings something special to the streets and wilderness of Colorado. Elegant yet powerful, versatile and high-tech, there are few vehicles that are able to do it all, but the RDX can have you prepared for whatever life throws at you, on- or off-road. With seating for up to five passengers, a spacious cargo hold, and an ample towing capacity, this crossover is a smart choice for drivers from Colorado Springs to Boulder.


Conquer any road

The 2017 Acura RDX performance specs are all the more impressive when you realize that this is a five-passenger crossover utility vehicle that has more power than many larger models. A 3.5L V6 engine with Variable Cylinder Management balances efficiency with power, and the available intelligent all-wheel drive system offers the confidence of all-wheel traction while only utilizing it during moments of lost traction for added efficiency.

  • V6 Engine

    3.5L V6 Engine

    Under the hood of each 2017 Acura RDX is a 3.5L V6 engine capable of 279 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque paired to a six-speed Sequential SportShift Transmission. Those impressive performance specs pair with an EPA-estimated 28 mpg on the highway and 20 mpg in the city for RDX 2WD models, too.

  • Variable Cylinder Management

    Variable Cylinder Management

    What leads to such an efficient powertrain? A smart sense of engineering. The RDX doesn’t need to run on all six cylinders when cruising, and Variable Cylinder Management lets the engine activate and deactivate cylinders as needed to conserve fuel while allowing all six cylinders to come to life when it’s time to put the pedal down.

  • 6 Speed Sequential SportShift Automatic

    Sequential SportShift Transmission

    Modern automatic transmissions actually offer superior fuel economies to their manual counterparts, but many drivers aren’t keen on giving up that control. The six-speed Sequential SportShift Transmission brings the efficiency of an automatic with the control of a manual thanks to a set of steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

  • All Wheel Drive

    All-Wheel Drive with Intelligent Control

    A traditional all-wheel drive system sends power to all four wheels whenever the vehicle is on, giving traction when you might not need it and draining the gas tank. Acura’s All-Wheel Drive with Intelligent Control knows when the RDX loses traction and sends power to the rear wheels to regain control and keep your grip on a slippery road or uneven terrain for control and efficiency at the same time.

  • Suspension Systems

    Suspension Systems

    A multi-link rear suspension and a front strut suspension work together to create a smooth driving experience in the cabin of the RDX, isolating the springs and shocks and minimizing road noise. The RDX’s low center of gravity and its Amplitude Reactive Dampers help keep the vehicle stable, ensuring you’re in control even when cornering.

  • Quiet Ride

    Smooth and Quiet Ride

    In addition to the suspension system, the RDX features Michelin Primacy MXM4 tires and heavily reinforced mounting points that work to decrease engine and road noise. The spare tire area and inner fenders are lined with Thinsulate to reduce any additional noise and minimize its impact on your driving experience.


Powerful first impression

The refined design of the 2017 Acura RDX should be clear from just a glance, with an exterior style that’s sure to turn heads on the road or in the Rockies. Blending a classic sense of elegance with a sporty and aggressive stance helps set the RDX apart from its competitors, and features like Jewel Eye LED headlights mark the vehicle as distinctly Acura, day or night. A range of exterior convenience and safety features are so seamlessly integrated into the design that we think you’ll have a tough time spotting them.

  • Multi Angle Rearview Camera

    Multi-View Rear Camera

    Each RDX includes a multi-view rear camera as a standard feature, offering you peace of mind when backing up with your choice of top-down, wide-angle, or standard views. All you need to do is shift into reverse, and the RDX will display its camera view on the in-dash screen – change views with the push of a button before backing out of a parking spot or lining up a trailer.

  • Keyless Access System

    Keyless Access

    This RDX feature lets the crossover sense when your key fob is nearby, letting you walk up to the locked door and open it up without ever having to search for your pockets or purse for keys. When you’ve reached your destination, locking up is as simple as pressing a button on the door, and with the standard push-button start, you won’t have to frantically dig for keys ever again.

  • Jewel Eye LED Headlights

    Jewel Eye LED Headlights

    Each new Acura model carries a distinct look on the front end thanks to the Jewel Eye LED headlights, standard on the RDX. Reflectors in each headlight are designed to glimmer during the day, catching the sunlight and earning their “Jewel Eye” name. At night, these bright, efficient lights illuminate the path ahead in clear white light.


Detail oriented

The leather-wrapped 2017 Acura RDX interior establishes its elegance from the moment you open the door, with perforated upholstery for maximum style and comfort. The standard heated front seating and 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat keep you comfortable, with high-tech amenities ensuring you’re connected on the way to work or on a weekend adventure. When you need a crossover more for cargo hauling than people moving, simply fold down part or all of the rear seat and fill up the hatch.

  • Cabin Storage

    Cabin Storage

    The RDX has a main storage area in the center console that could hold nearly two dozen CD cases, offering up more than enough room for essentials like a smartphone, wallet, chargers, and more. Of course, if you need your phone at the ready, the tray above the console is just the right size and has an easily accessible charging outlet. With the bin-shaped glovebox, door pockets, and other storage, the RDX should have room for your necessities.

  • Cargo Area

    Cargo Area

    The spacious cabin of the RDX can quickly switch between moving people and moving cargo thanks to the 60/40 split-folding rear seat. If the standard 26.1 cubic feet of cargo room isn’t enough, folding down the rear seat can unlock as much as 76.9 cubic feet. Acura’s crossover is ready to take the kids out for ice cream after the game with the seats up or to pack up the dorm room essentials with the seats down.

  • Automatic Climate Control

    Automatic Climate Control

    Comfort is a top priority for any Acura, and the RDX obliges with standard dual-zone climate control that automatically adjusts to the individual settings of both the driver and front passenger. Simply choose preferred airflow and temperature settings and let the climate control do the rest; your rear passengers have adjustable vents for their comfort, too.

  • Bluetooth Handsfree


    Standard on each RDX, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink can pair up to six devices to the crossover for streaming audio, making handsfree phone calls, and receiving SMS texts. Siri Eyes Free brings the utility of everyone’s favorite iPhone concierge on the drive and an intuitive touchscreen interface ensures managing your connections is as simple as a few taps.

  • Voice Activated Controls

    Voice Recognition

    It’s important to be able to manage your vehicle systems without distracting from your driving, and that’s why the RDX has an available voice recognition system (found paired with the satellite-linked navigation). With a press of the steering wheel-mounted “Talk” button, you can utter one of over 200 voice commands and have the RDX respond without ever removing your hands from the wheel or taking your eyes off the road.

  • On Demand Multi Use Display

    On-Demand Multi-Use Display (ODMD)

    Could you imagine the dashboard of a the RDX if it had a button for every different feature? It would be cluttered and chaotic. The ODMD replaces dozens of potential buttons with an adaptable touchscreen that features nine “buttons” that adapt to the controls you need when you need them for a streamlined media experience and a sleek interior.


Stout defense

While the luxurious interior, the stunning sense of style, the high-tech features, and the high-performance engine are all important parts of a vehicle like the RDX, Acura puts one thing above all else: safety. Standard safety features like airbags, seat belts, and the multi-angle rearview camera complement the advanced AcuraWatch Plus features to create an RDX that embraces all levels of safety: active, passive, and driver assistance.

  • ACE Body Structure

    ACE Body Structure

    The Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) Body Structure shows that safety is a concern of the RDX from it very skeleton. Common collision areas are reinforced while crumple zones are placed to help redirect crash energy away from passengers to reduce the chance of injury in a collision.

  • Adaptive Cruise Control

    Adaptive Cruise Control

    Found on the AcuraWatch Plus Package, Adaptive Cruise Control uses radar to sense the velocities of surrounding vehicles and adjust cruising speeds automatically. The result is a crossover that lets you focus on the drive while it worries about keeping pace with traffic.

  • Vehicle Stability Assist

    Vehicle Stability Assist

    Standard on the RDX, Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) monitors the vehicle position and how it coordinates to the steering wheel input from the driver. If it senses that these two stats don’t match up, it can adjust torque, throttle position, and brakes to correct for understeer or oversteer, re-stabilizing the vehicle and helping keep you in control.

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System

    Collision Mitigation Braking

    Another AcuraWatch Plus feature, Collision Mitigation Braking features a Frontal Collision Warning system that uses radar sensors to detect if you are approaching another vehicle too quickly. After a warning, the Collision Mitigation Braking system can apply the brakes automatically to slow or even stop the RDX and mitigate the potential damage of a front-end collision.

  • Lane Keeping Assist

    Lane Keeping Assist

    A front-mounted camera lets this AcuraWatch Plus feature monitor the markings on the pavement, letting it detect if the RDX is drifting from its lane. If the driver hasn’t signaled a lane change, this safety feature issues a warning and then gives the wheel a slight nudge to help keep the vehicle centered in its lane.

  • Blind Spot Information

    Blind Spot Information

    This available safety feature uses radar sensors in the rear of the RDX to detect if a vehicle is in either of its blind spots. If the radar detects a vehicle in an “alert zone,” it lights up indicators on the appropriate windshield pillar, flashing if you signal a lane change toward an occupied lane (Always remember to visually check for vehicles before changing lanes).
