Can a flagship vehicle be positioned with just a V6 engine? Acura thinks so. Opportunities to see the production model of the all-new 2014 RLX will be in November at the 2012 LA Auto Show. The new Acura flagship sedan will employ an array of new technologies unique to Acura including the Precision All Wheel Steer system and their new Jewel Eye LED headlamps to deliver an entirely new level of performance, sophistication and comfort.
The front-wheel-drive version of the 2014 RLX will utilize Acura’s new Precision All Wheel Steer system which automatically makes slight adjustments to the relative rear wheel (toe) angles by utilizing electrically controlled actuators to deliver an extraordinary level of cornering control and steering precision. The front-wheel-drive RLX will come equipped with a 3.5-liter direct-injected V-6 engine producing 310 horsepower.
It will also feature the first application of the next-generation AcuraLink Communication System, which incorporates built-in two-way cellular communication to deliver a variety of new convenience features, including airbag deployment notification, stolen vehicle tracking, remote locking and unlocking, security alarm notification and concierge service.
