Some of the original models that were part of the luxury crossover market have been being upgraded and improved to enter new generations over the past couple of year. One of these original models is the Acura RDX, which has been around for a long time and is ready for a new design and upgrades for the drive that’s right for you when this SUV comes to the market. We will see the new model of the Acura RDX at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show which will take place to begin the 2018 calendar year.
The new RDX design and build is being touted as the most extensive Acura redesign that’s taken place in more than a decade, and this SUV was certainly ready to have a complete redesign completed. What we’ll see at the show in January will be the prototype model, but you can expect the production model won’t be far behind and then this SUV will be offered as a new generation model soon after that. When we see the new RDX hit the market, it will be something different and something that gives us more of what we want from this luxury brand.
As we’ve seen with some of the other brands on the market, the Acura RDX will ride on the new platform that is exclusive to Acura and not shared with Honda. Not only will this platform be exclusive, it will also be used across many of the different models offered from this brand to make sure we can have the drove desired. There will be some key design elements we can expect to see that come from the Acura Precision Concept and the Acura Precision Cockpit to bring in more of what we want for the drive.
On the outside of the new RDX concept, we’ll see a low, wide, and sleek presence that comes from the Precision Concept to be added to this SUV to bring it more character than we would otherwise see in most SUV models. The character lines are expected to run along the entire side of the vehicle for a sleek look. The interior of the RDX brings in a new design, user interface, and systems that are extremely different from what this SUV has offered us in the past.
We’re sure to see an SUV that offers everything we want for the drive when the RDX shows up on the stage as a great concept model next month. This prototype could change as it moves toward the production model, but the fact that the RDX is going to be the basis for many of the other models from this brand for the future, it might carry to production in much the same appearance and style as this concept model will be when it arrives in Detroit.
This is the first time the Acura has been designed and developed in America, which is significant for this luxury brand as it becomes the model that’s right for you to drive and experience on the road.
