Acura All-Wheel Drive Vehicles

Most Detroit Metro and Michigan drivers know how necessary all-wheel drive can be during the winter months, but there’s more to it than simply helping you get through the snow and ice. The RDX and MDX crossovers are eager to head off-road to the campsite, and you can trust the available all-wheel drive systems to bring you back to the pavement when the adventure is done. Drivers seeking more power and control in a sport sedan will love the addition of Super Handling All-Wheel Drive to vehicles like the TLX V-6 and the RLX Sport Hybrid.

Enhanced Power & Traction

 
One of the few three-row luxury crossovers on the market, the 2017 Acura MDX is already well-equipped to take on the needs of the average family. With seating for up to seven and an easily expandable cargo area for when the seats aren’t full, the versatility of Acura’s crossover makes it a top vehicle choice among Michigan families.

 

Part of the versatility of a crossover SUV is knowing you can take it anywhere, that it can handle almost anything. And that’s why every level of the MDX is available with Acura’s Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD). It is able to direct the 290 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque output from the 3.5L V-6 engine to the wheels that need the power and traction the most.

 

Updates to the SH-AWD system have helped drop its overall weight, reducing its impact on fuel efficiency. And since SH-AWD knows where the power needs to be and when, it can send most of it to the front wheels while cruising to conserve fuel.

Maintain a Grip On The Road

 
Take the MDX and put its versatility and luxury into a smaller package, and you have the 2018 Acura RDX. With seating for up to five, the RDX is an ideal crossover for the small family on the go, and its 3.5L V-6 engine kicks out 279 horsepower and 252 lb-ft of torque. With the available All-Wheel Drive with Intelligent Control, the RDX is ready for those harsh Detroit winters.

 

Unlike traditional AWD systems, the RDX AWD with Intelligent Control can detect when the front wheels have lost traction and quickly send power to the rear wheels to maintain a grip on the road. The result is a near seamless transition from FWD to AWD to keep your crossover heading where you want it to.

 

The 2018 RDX makes you comfortable behind the wheel, with AWD with Intelligent Control letting you drive with confidence and features like heated front seating and automatic climate control ensuring the cabin is as welcoming as your home living room. Like the MDX, you can find AWD available on any version of the RDX, from standard to the RDX with Advance Package.

Unique Level Of Control

 
The full-size sedan has long been a marker of both family cars and luxury vehicles, which is why the 2017 RLX is the flagship sedan for Acura. It features all of the benefits of the Technology Package from the start, upgrading luxury and tech features, and under the hood is a 310-hp V-6 engine. Drivers seeking more control and power need only look to the 2017 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD.

 

If you see “hybrid” and think “slow,” we can sympathize, but the RLX is different. It adds three electric motors to the 310-hp V-6 engine for a combined 377 hp and a unique level of control. With individual motors for each rear wheel, the SH-AWD system can launch you from a dead start or through a curve with ease—the electrically delivered torque hits its peak almost immediately while a traditional, gas-driven system would require a bit of revving.

 

The unique process used by the SH-AWD system has been referred to as “torque vectoring,” and it was pioneered on these models. When the RLX makes its way into a curve, SH-AWD will spin the outer wheels faster to accelerate through the curve more quickly. Unlike older models, the Sport Hybrid SH-AWD does this automatically through a turn, rather than requiring you to accelerate through it.

2018 Acura TLX AWD

How The Curve Was Won.

Improving Poor Weather Performance

 
When it first entered the Acura vehicle lineup, the TLX had big shoes to fill. Or rather it had multiple pairs of shoes to fill, taking the place of both the TL and TSX models, and to do that, it offers Michigan drivers three powertrain options to choose from: the peppy yet efficient inline-4, the robust 3.5-liter V-6 engine, or the V-6 paired with Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD). The choice is yours!

 

Drivers who want that extra V-6 power will be happy to know that 2018 Acura TLX V-6 models can be equipped with SH-AWD in addition to the Precision All-Wheel Steer system that helps the sedan trace a line through a curve. Walking the line between sporty and elegant, luxurious and affordable, there are few drivers who won’t find what they need in the TLX.

 

Adding all-wheel drive to a sport sedan does more than just improve poor weather performance; it gives you a new level of control over the power output of the engine. Unlike traditional AWD, 2018 TLX SH-AWD vehicles send up to 90% of their power to the front tires when at cruising speeds. The second more torque is needed, up to 45% of engine power can be sent to the back wheels and as much as 70% of max torque can be sent to a single rear wheel.
