Markham, ON —Featuring refined styling, a dramatically quieter cabin, and a retuned suspension, the 2022 Acura RDX is the most dynamic, comfortable, and refined 5-passenger SUV in Acura history.
Making its debut at the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach in striking Long Beach Blue Pearl paint, the 2022 RDX lineup is expanded with the availability of a new top trim, combining the sporty style of the highly popular RDX A-Spec® with the premium features of the Platinum Elite Package.
RDX’s turbocharged 272-horsepower 2.0-litre VTEC® 4-cylinder is one of the most powerful standard engines in its class. It’s paired with a smooth and responsive 10-speed automatic with standard Sequential SportShift paddle shifters. Acura’s signature Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®) with true torque vectoring is standard on all RDX grades. All RDX models come with either 19-inch or 20-inch alloy wheels. For a more premium experience, the 2022 RDX receives extensive updates to reduce road noise in the cabin.
The fifth Acura model to be built at Acura’s Performance Manufacturing Center (PMC), the new 2022 RDX PMC Edition will be offered exclusively in vibrant Long Beach Blue Pearl paint. Shared only with the NSX supercar, the striking color salutes North America’s most iconic street race – the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach. Hand-crafted alongside the 600 hp Acura NSX Type S at the PMC in Ohio, it will be Acura’s most exclusive PMC edition yet. Limited to just 15 hand assembled units available for the Canadian market, each 2022 RDX PMC Edition will be individually numbered with a serial plaque on the center console denoting the special edition.
The RDX PMC Edition also stands out with a body-color grille surround and a gloss-black Diamond Pentagon grille. The door handles, outside mirrors, roof and roof antenna also are gloss-black, along with the A-Spec badges on the front fenders and the Acura, RDX and A-Spec badges on the tailgate. The PMC Edition rolls on Berlina Black 20-inch wheels with an elaborate 15-spoke design, and its large round exhaust outlets are finished in a unique dark chrome.
Inside, all 2022 RDX PMC Editions feature the new Orchid interior color with blue contrast stitching to reflect the exclusive exterior color. Premium PMC Edition floor mats also are included. PMC Editions are contented with all available Platinum Elite A-Spec premium features including the Head-Up Display (HUD), Surround View Camera, Rear Outboard Heated Seats, and 16-way power front seats with adjustable side.
The 2022 Acura RDX will begin production this fall. Pricing will be released close to its launch date.
