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 V6 and the RLX Sport Hybrid.

Supercar Handling in a Luxury SUV

 

The MDX is the best-selling three-row luxury SUV of all time for many reasons. The biggest contributing factor to its best-selling reputation, perhaps, is its responsive handling. Every 2020 Acura MDX comes standard equipped with Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA)* with Traction Control and Motion Adaptive Steering, Agile Handling Assist, and an Integrated Dynamics System (IDS) that features three distinct driving modes. But this technology is only the beginning.

 

Joining a 3.5L 290-hp V-6 engine*, all 2020 MDX models can be outfitted with class-defining, available Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD), which enhances traction during slippery road conditions as well as everyday driving. This torque-vectoring system distributes power between the front and rear wheels—and between each rear wheel—based on real-time analysis of the vehicle’s performance and driver’s actions. Needless to say, challenging terrain and unexpected weather conditions no longer stand a chance against such a sophisticated all-wheel drive system.

 

On slippery surfaces, SH-AWD proactively sends power to the wheel with the most traction. During lane changes, SH-AWD increases stability by transferring power to the inside rear wheel. Through the turns, SH-AWD distributes up to 70 percent of engine torque to the rear wheels, while the aforementioned torque-vectoring system can actually send up to 100 percent of that torque to the outside rear wheel for confident cornering. For straightaways that don’t require additional traction, SH-AWD will send up to 90 percent of engine power to the front wheels for better fuel economy.

 

The SH-AWD system gives MDX a clear advantage over the competition. With 290 horsepower, 267 lb-ft of torque, and a 5,000-pound towing capacity*, SH-AWD helps harness MDX’s power to increase performance during any driving scenario. Whether its accelerating through sharp turns or navigating slick surfaces, the 2020 Acura MDX might be one of the most sure-footed luxury SUVs in its segment.

Not Every Road Is Racetrack Perfect

 

Performance isn’t just about horsepower. If it were, the direct injection, all-aluminum turbo engine of the 2020 RDX offers plenty—272 horsepower* to be exact. But there is much more to the story. Acura’s available Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®) delivers superior performance and control in high-performance driving conditions, even when the weather and road conditions are less than ideal.

 

Developed on the most demanding tracks and roads around the world, SH-AWD is already renowned for its ability to create a stable driving platform by instantly distributing power to each wheel based on wheel speed, steering angle, lateral G-forces, and yaw rates, but Acura has strived to make it even better.

 

Rain and sun, snow and sleet, track-perfect corner after snow-covered corner after gravel-filled corner, Acura was able to improve both the torque capacity and torque vectoring, a chalkboard-filling equation that turns the RDX into one of the best-performing vehicles on the road, regardless of the road ahead.

 

Inside the 2020 Acura RDX, handling is further enhanced thanks to the Integrated Dynamics System (IDS), which offers four different drive modes that respond to both your mood and the driving environment. All it takes is the turn of a dial to instantly adjust many aspects of how intimately the vehicle and driver engage. Depending on the drive mode selected—Snow, Sport, Sport+, or Comfort—you can increase the throttle response, adjust shift points, steering feel, and Super Handling All-Wheel Drive settings (when equipped).

2020 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD

A Performance of Precision.

Perfectly Placed Power

 

Utilizing some of the same technology found on board the NSX supercar, the 2020 Acura RLX and its Sport Hybrid SH-AWD system is one of the most advanced all-wheel drive configurations on the road today. This system is designed to react to the driving conditions, as well as the driver’s input, instinctively supplying torque in situations that call for added acceleration, response, and handling.

 

The 2020 RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD consists of three electric motor units, a strapping V-6 engine, and a quick-shifting 7-speed Dual-Clutch Transmission. These components work together for a total output of 377 horsepower* and 341 lb-ft of torque—not to mention 28 combined city/highway mpg*.

 

From highway cruising to slick road conditions, the Sport Hybrid SH-AWD system gives drivers the upper hand in nearly any driving scenario. Dramatic acceleration comes courtesy of the rear Twin Motor Unit (TMU), which provides instant torque vectoring when the RLX is at a standstill. During cornering, the same TMU also transfers torque side to side between the rear wheels, independently applying positive or negative torque to each wheel as needed; therefore, tightening the vehicle’s line and precisely tracing the driver’s desired path.

 

The Sport Hybrid SH-AWD system makes easy work of challenging terrain by monitoring the RLX’s speed, wheel spin, driver input, and other factors to instantly distribute power to the wheels with the most traction or send negative torque to a specific wheel for increased stability. Whether you’re navigating snow-covered streets or dry pavement, this electric-torque-vectoring, all-wheel drive system keeps the 2020 RLX strongly connected with the road ahead.

Make Every Corner Your Favorite Corner

 

The 2020 TLX lineup features three, highly capable powertrains, including the 2.4-liter inline-4 and available 3.5-liter V-6 engine equipped with Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD), a revolutionary torque-vectoring technology born from racing that turns even the most demanding driving moments into some of your most confident performance experiences.

 

SH-AWD distributes power front to back and to each rear wheel based on wheel speed, steering angle, rate of steering, lateral G-forces, and yaw rates. Under slick conditions, SH-AWD actively sends power to the wheel with the most traction. When cornering on dry surfaces, up to 70 percent of the torque is distributed to the rear. Torque vectoring allows up to 100 percent of that power to distribute to the outside rear wheel, improving control and helping rotate the TLX through the turn.

 

For better fuel efficiency, up to 90 percent of engine power is sent to the front wheels when cruising in a straight line. During lane changes, the SH-AWD system transfers torque to the inside rear wheel for increased stability.

 

Every 2020 Acura TLX is equipped with the Integrated Dynamics System (IDS) that perfectly sets up the car’s technology to deliver four unique modes of Precision Crafted Performance. Click from Normal mode into Sport mode, and the TLX instantly dials up throttle response, increases the top end of shift points, weights the steering for a more connected feel, and puts the SH-AWD system on notice to deliver more aggressive responses. Sport+ takes that aggressive demeanor one step further, with even higher shift points and rev-matching downshifts for better balance when quickly running up and down the gears.

 

High performance and unparalleled safety join forces on board the 2020 TLX with additional, standard features like an Electronic Gear Selector, Sequential SportShift Paddle Shifters, Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA)* with traction control and motion adaptive steering, Agile Handling Assist, and the AcuraWatch driver-assistive suite.
