2014 ACURA RLX: "Luxury, taken to a whole new level," is the timely new slogan for the 2014 Acura RLX, which made its first appearance in Chicago at last year's show. The '14 RLX, Acura's new flagship, becomes the most powerful, spacious, and technologically advanced Acura sedan in the brand's history. Contemporary "aero-fused" exterior styling employs a wide, athletic stance, with sharp upswept bodylines, along with aerodynamic greenhouse and Acura's exclusive Jewel Eye headlights. These units use a dual-stacked array of multiple high-intensity LED lamps to provide powerful down-the-road illumination. Additional exterior features that are available include an acoustic glass windshield and door glass, integrated power rear sunshade, front and rear parking sensors, heated and auto-dimming side mirrors, and rain-sensing windshield wipers. Premium full-size five-passenger interior boasts increased legroom and shoulder room in this mid-size sedan package. Luxury-performance is supplied by an all-new 3.5-liter VTEC V-6 engine generating 310 horsepower to the front wheels, and mated to a reengineered sequential SportShift six-speed automatic transmission with steering-wheel mounted shift paddles. Big news is that the '14 Acura RLX employs the first-ever application of "Precision All-Wheel Steer" system that delivers improved cornering control and steering accuracy. Seven spoke 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels and all-weather tires are standard, while Technology, Krell and Advance grade packages feature 19-inch wheels and rubber. Two cool features are the multi-angle rearview camera, and capless fueling that eliminates the fuel cap. In fourth-quarter 2013 the RLX featuring Acura's new Sports Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive technology was released, with increased performance from a 370hp V-6. Chicago Auto Show Fact: Acura selected the 2008 Chicago Auto Show for the world debut of the new-generation (2009) Acura RL - "Refined Luxury."
