Acura released details about the 2009 RDX turbocharged crossover vehicle. For 2009, the RDX now comes standard with a 4-way adjustable power-activated passenger front seat along with four new exterior colors: Basque Red Pearl, Crystal Black Pearl, Grigio Metallic and Palladium Metallic. In addition, AcuraLink Real-time traffic system includes coverage for yet another major metropolitan area—bringing the total to 77 areas.
The RDX is powered by a turbocharged 2.3-liter DOHC 16-valve in-line four-cylinder engine that delivers 240 horsepower at 6000 rpm with 260 lb-ft of torque at 4500 rpm. The RDX has an EPA fuel economy rating of 17/22 mpg (city/highway). The engine is mated by a 5-speed automatic transmission with Sequential SportShift.
For 2009, a 4-way adjustable power front seat is standard for the front passenger. The 3-passenger rear seat has a 60/40 split-folding capability and, when folded flat, significantly expands the load area and increases the total cargo volume to 60.6 cubic feet.
Acura announced that the 2009 RDX will be available in two versions: the generously appointed RDX and the fully-featured RDX with Technology Package. MSRP pricing for the RDX is $33,695 and the RDX with Technology Package is $36,995.
