The upcoming 2025 Acura RDX would be the third production of this current gen. The model itself is still fresh, but it doesn’t mean that it can’t get several new updates. This model is pretty good, which is pretty understandable when there aren’t many complaints about its condition. However, the SUV still has its own room for updates and improvements, making it better and more reliable.
The Updated Plan
There is a possibility that the next year’s update would have a tad modification for the transmission, which means that the ride quality can even improve and made better. Other than this major upgrade, we may see some refreshed updates concerning the available and standard equipment, such as new color options or such things alike.
The updates may be minor, but you should expect that the overall layout will stay the same. The SUV RDX is known for its athleticism and good stance. The powertrain is capable and solid. It also comes with spacious interior and impressive quality for the interior. Hopefully, the company will make the vehicle to be as promising as before, maintaining its good quality while adding up some extra positive traits.
Powertrain and Performance
Many auto enthusiasts don’t really expect drastic changes for the powertrain. It seems that the base model will still be coming with V6 naturally aspirated unit with 3.5 liter capacity, delivering 290 hp. This is enough to deliver solid and tough driving dynamics. In the meanwhile, the Type S would likely be coming with V6 turbo of 3.0 liter capacity, delivering 355 hp and 354 Nm of torque.
The most anticipated update is about the transmission. There is nothing wrong with the auto 10 speed gearbox. It’s able to deliver refined and smooth performance. However, it would be great if the transmission in Acura can be almost similar to the German rivals. They do have impeccable performance in transmission, delivering super smooth result.
This is especially applicable for the manual transmission, in which the shifts can be a bit slower – which isn’t a standard for a premium vehicle. The Type S model is the high performance model, but the transmission isn’t as flawless as the German competitors.
Design and Style
The appearance of the 2025 Acura RDX is still good and accommodating, but we won’t complain if there are minor updates available, like new appearance package or new color option. The RDX will remain to be an attractive and modern look. However, the mechanical aspect won’t change at all. You should expect the same suspension and chassis setup, offering composed handling that delivers comfy and smooth ride. The Type S will even bring better outcome. When it mixes the suspension, torque vectoring, and brake upgrades, it would deliver fun SUV that is whimsical enough to drive and maneuver.
As it was mentioned before, the upcoming model would get some (minor) updates. Some of the already good standard of the features will remain the same as the current model. Expect digital instrument cluster and also infotainment screen as the standard (they would be coming in 12.3 inch in size). There would also be a touchpad controller, Amazon Alexa, wireless device charging, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, satellite radio, Bluetooth, USB ports, and also audio system with nine speaker layout.
Price and Release Date
Predictions have been made for the upcoming Acura. It may be available within the last quarter of 2024. For the price, it’s predicted that the starting tag may be set around $51,000. Considering that it would be competing against Genesis GV70 and Lexus NX, the company needs to be serious about its development and creation. We should know more about 2025 Acura RDX once further info is available.
