2021 Acura RDX on Highway

The Acura RDX is known as a premium crossover that excels in performance and luxury, but what is the 2021 Acura RDX towing capacity? The latest model has the power to haul up to 1,500 pounds across all its trim levels. So whether your schedule has you heading to Hartford or hauling gear on a road trip, the RDX towing capacity won’t let you down. Let’s take a closer look at what the RDX towing capacity brings to your West Hartford travels.

RDX Towing Capacity and Features

The 2021 Acura RDX towing capacity reaches 1,500 pounds, which is plenty of power to move anything from small trailers to jet skis. And while every trim and drivetrain configuration offers the same strength on the road, you can take your driving experience to the next level with our parts department at Acura of Avon. Our parts department can help you fine-tune your performance to suit your needs. From genuine towing components to accessories, your RDX will feel even more secure and powerful with features like:

  • Brake controllers
  • Weight distribution
  • Trailer hitch 
  • Hitch accessories
  • And more!

RDX Performance Specs

So, how does Acura deliver its impressive RDX towing capacity? They start with a Turbo Aluminum-Alloy 2.0L 4-Cylinder engine that’s paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission, which delivers a total of 272 horsepower and up to 280 lb-ft of torque

While athletic and strong, this powertrain combo is also fuel-efficient and smooth on the Manchester roads. The standard front-wheel drive system is comfortable on the West Hartford roads, but for an extra boost, consider the brand’s own Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system that optimizes performance across any terrain. Here are just a few of the performance features found on the latest model:

  • Available Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system
  • Sequential SportShift Paddle Shifters
  • Agile Handling Assist
  • 4-Mode Integrated Dynamics System
  • Available Advance Package
