Horsepower and Torque Ratings of the 2019 Acura RDX 

We want to mention the RDX’s engine because it’s all-new for the 2019 model year – you’ll find a 16-Valve, 2.0-liter DOHC VTEC® turbocharged Inline 4 under the hood, which can produce a maximum of 272 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. Due to this, the 2019 RDX provides one of the quickest and most responsive drives on today’s market.

With the 2019 RDX comes a 10-speed automatic transmission, which operates either in automatic mode or with paddle shifters mounted on your steering wheel. This helps put more control over the road back in your hands!  

Available Powertrain Options of the 2019 Acura RDX 

Depending on your specific drive style, there’s a powertrain onboard the 2019 RDX to fit your needs. Standard models will offer a front-wheel drive system, but if you’re looking for a better grip over the road, you can opt for the RDX’s Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®) operation. This latter system functions by directing engine power to the appropriate wheels to aid with weight distribution, traction, and other components, giving you that much-needed peace of mind.
