Acura has announced the pricing for the all-new 2014 Acura RLX flagship sedan, which starts at $48,450. The 2014 RLX officially goes on sale on March 15. “With an array of signature Acura technologies, the 2014 Acura RLX sets a new standard for luxury in the Acura lineup,” said Jeff Conrad, vice president and general manager of Acura Sales. “The feature-rich RLX epitomizes Acura’s ‘Man-Machine Synergy’ product direction, utilizing advanced technology and smart vehicle design to deliver incredible performance, comfort and value on a luxury scale.”
The 2014 RLX is powered by a 310-hp 3.5L V6 with 272 lb-ft. of torque. The V6 is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission and has the ability to run in 3-cylinder and 6-cylinder modes to improve fuel efficiency. The 2014 RLX also features the first-ever application of Acura Precision All-Wheel Steer (P-AWS), which helps the RLX achieve new levels of handling agility, high and low-speed maneuverability, and confident handling control for a two-wheel-drive luxury sedan. Precision All-Wheel Steer is the world’s first technology to feature independent and continuous control of the left and right rear-wheel steering (toe) angles. Its benefits include crisper lane changes, more nimble cornering, enhanced dynamic response, tighter radius low-speed turning, and confidence-inspiring control.
Want even more power? A version of RLX featuring Acura’s new Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (Sport Hybrid SH-AWD) technology, producing 370 horsepower with expected EPA fuel-economy ratings of 30 city/30 highway/30 combined, will debut later in 2013.
