Acura has confirmed that it will be debuting the production version of the 2014 Acura RLX at the 2012 LA Auto Show in November. The car is expected to look quite similar to the concept that made its debut at the 2012 New York Auto Show earlier this year.
The new Acura RLX will come with a range of new technologies unique to Acura, including the Precision All Wheel Steer system, the next-generation AcuraLink Communication System, Lane Keep Assist System, Forward Collision Warning, Collision Mitigation Braking System and the all-new Jewel Eye LED headlamps.
The Precision All Wheel Steer system is kind of having a backup all-wheel-drive system when needed. It comes with the front-wheel-driver version of the RLX and automatically makes slight adjustments to the relative rear wheel (toe) angles by utilizing electrically controlled actuators to deliver level of cornering control and steering precision.
The front-wheel-drive RLX will come with an all-new 3.5-liter direct-injected VTEC V6 engine producing 310 horsepower (SAE net).
More details to come as we get closer to the launch.
