Acura RDX Towing Capacity and Specs

The 2018 Acura RDX can tow up to 1,500 pounds, when properly equipped. This lets you take an ATV, a small camper, or other larger objects with you on weekend trips.

And to get to your destination, it helps to be in a steadfastly performing vehicle. The RDX comes standard with a 3.5L port injection V6 that produces 279 horsepower and 252 lb-ft of torque.

It comes standard in front-wheel drive (FWD), but has an available All-Wheel Drive (AWD) with Intelligent Control System™. On normal road conditions, the vehicle operates in FWD with 100 percent of engine torque being directed to the front wheels. When front wheel slip is detected on dry roads, up to 40 percent of engine torque is transferred to the rear wheels. And on slippery surfaces, torque can be distributed 50/50 between the front and rear wheels.

Interior Space & Amenities

When traveling somewhere fun, you also want to make sure that everyone on board is nice and comfortable. There's plenty of room for up to five passengers to stretch out, with 42 inches of front legroom, 38.3 inches of rear legroom, and 103.5 ft3 of total passenger volume.

And not only will you be able to tow large items, but you'll also have plenty of room to fit smaller objects inside the RDX. There's 26.1 ft3 of cargo space behind the rear seats. Fold that row down, and the space expands to 61.3 ft3.

The Acura RDX comes standard with leatherette-trimmed sport seats, and has available perforated leather-trimmed sport seats. The vehicle comes standard with heated front seats to stay nice and cozy on chillier nights. And there are available ventilated front seats, too, so you can cool down on hot summer days.

There's also a standard dual-zone automatic climate control system. The driver and front-seat passenger can choose their preferred temperature settings, so neither will be too hot or too cold.

Acura RDX Towing Safety

 Regardless if you're traveling with towed equipment, you still want to be in a vehicle that'll help keep you safe. The RDX does this by offering plenty of safety options to help prevent an accident from occurring. It comes standard with a Multi-View Rear Camera, which offers three different views-normal, wide angle, and top-down-to better see what's behind you.

The vehicle also has an available Blind Spot Information System, which can detect a car in your blind spot when you're traveling over 20 MPH. It'll send a warning through a beeping sound, plus a flashing indicator in the corresponding side mirror.
