The 2016 Acura RDX debuted back in February, bringing some notable updates to Acura's small crossover. Now, we've got full pricing information for the revised model.
The base price for the 2016 RDX is $36,640 for front-wheel-drive models, and $37,690 if you add all-wheel drive. Both prices include the mandatory $920 destination charge. This represents an increase of just $175 over the 2015 model.
All RDX models use a 3.5-liter V-6 similar to the one found in the new 2016 Honda Pilot. In the RDX, it produces 279 horsepower and 252 pound-feet of torque and features Variable Cylinder Management cylinder deactivation to improve fuel economy.
The only available transmission is a six-speed automatic, while the optional all-wheel-drive system with Intelligent Control has been tuned for more rear torque bias.
Opting for the Technology package brings prices up to $39,890 for front-wheel drive and $41,390 for all-wheel drive. Notable features added for 2016 include a new information display, HD Radio, blind-spot information, a rearview camera with dynamic grid lines, Rear Cross Traffic Monitor, and a navigation system with voice recognition.
To get all of the bells and whistles, you'll need the Advance package, which bumps the price up to $42,840 with front-wheel drive, and $44,340 with all-wheel drive. This package adds front and rear parking sensors, ventilated front seats, rain-sensing wipers, keyless remote start, fog lights, and an auto-dimming driver's side mirror, among other features.
Also standard with the Advance package--and optional on other models--is the AcuraWatch suite of safety features. It includes adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, forward collision warning, automatic braking, and an "Expanded View" driver's side mirror.
