Styled conservatively, but handsomely, the 2013
made its public debut
at the 2012 Chicago Auto Show earlier this month. Today, Acura announced the new RDX will start from $34,320 plus an $885 for a base price of $35,205.
That price will buy the base RDX, rated by the EPA at 20 mpg city and 28 mpg highway. The standard RDX is powered by a 3.5-liter V-6 engine producing 273 horsepower. Standard features include a six-speed automatic transmission, front-wheel drive (all-wheel drive can be added for $1,400), leather seating, heated/power front seats, a power moonroof, and a 360-watt audio system.
Adding the Technology package raises the RDX's price to $38,905, including delivery, and adds AcuraLink Satellite Communication System; navigation with voice recognition; 60-gb hard drive; real-time traffic, weather, and rerouting; dual-zone climate control; Acura/ELS surround sound system; power rear tailgate; and projector headlights.
The priciest RDX combines the Technology package with all-wheel drive, at $40,305 before additional options and features are added.
The 2013 Acura RDX will be built at the East Liberty, Ohio plant and goes on sale this spring.
