Acura RDX Engine Specs

Behind the impressive Acura RDX fuel efficiency is the powerful 2.0L 16-Valve DOHC VTEC® turbo engine. You will find this engine across the entire RDX lineup, so you can enjoy its performance on the Cedar Rapids roads regardless of which configuration you want. Take a look at some of the highlights that this engine has to offer: 

  • 272 horsepower
  • 280 lb-ft of torque
  • 10-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters
  • 1,500 pounds towing capacity
  • Available Adaptive Damper System
  • Dual Pinion, Variable Ratio Electric Power Steering

Take Advantage of the Acura RDX Fuel Efficiency in Des Moines 

If you live specifically in Des Moines, you will want to get in on the new Acura RDX gas mileage as Des Moines is a car-dependent city. With a walk score of 45 out of 100, you will have to rely on a car to do most of your commutes and errands. Thinking about not driving? It will even be more difficult to get around the city as it has a transit score of 30 out of 100 and a bike score of 39 out of 100. 

What this basically means is that there is some transportation and minimal bike infrastructure, so you will spend more time commuting if you don’t drive. If you often need to go to other parts of Iowa, you will also need an efficient car as it’s mostly rural. With an RDX, you can go where you need to go while saving on gas money!
