All About the New 2019 Acura RDX Prototype from Duluth, Georgia


Acura Carland is excited to introduce our Duluth and Atlanta, Georgia area customers to the new 2019 Acura RDX prototype, recently revealed at the Detroit auto show. This 2019 RDX is the most extensive Acura redesign in more than a decade, with a clean-sheet, top-to-bottom remake. This third generation RDX SUV comes on the new “Acura exclusive” platform that’s lighter and stiffer and will be the first Acura SUV to receive A-Spec treatment, which will include more sporty cues inside and out.


The 2019 RDX is fitted with a powerful 2.0-liter DOHC VTEC Turbo engine segment-first 10-speed automatic transmission and will come in front- or super-handling all-wheel-drive formats. The available adaptive dampers work with the 4 drive modes: Comfort, Sport, Sport Plus, and Snow. Exhilarating performance, class-leading cabin and cargo space, and a host of groundbreaking new Acura technologies will set a new standard in entry-level luxury SUV segment.



This 5-passenger luxury SUV, set to launch mid-2018, will be the quickest, best-handling RDX ever. The new 2019 RDX will have a wider track by 1.2 inches, a longer wheelbase by 2.5 inches, and a shortened front overhang. In addition, the new pentagon grille and Jewel (Bug) Eye LED headlights combine to present a sleek and head-turning exterior. The interior features, such as the 4 ultra-thin, ceiling-mounted speakers and 16-channel, 710-watt acura ELS Studio 3D system, developed by Panasonic, add a new dimension to sound and fidelity to the audio experience.
