There’s much to admire about Acura models. With their elegant demeanor, refined craftsmanship, and state-of-the-art innovation, Acura produces some of the most attractive vehicles on the market. In addition to their high-caliber offerings, many models render remarkable capability to support your varying needs. When you want a luxurious ride with a bit of hauling power, take a look at these Acura SUVs.
Albeit a compact crossover, the 2018 Acura RDX offers sensational towing capability. Pumping out 279 horsepower and 252 lb-ft of torque, the standard 3.5-liter i-VTEC® engine in the RDX is the perfect complement to your everyday travels. Thanks to these ratings, the Acura RDX harnesses the muscle to haul a maximum 1,500 lb, which lets you bring along a pair of jet skis, a small trailer, or even a four-wheeler. A 6-speed automatic transmission comes standard in every trim, and it even features sequential SportShift paddle shifters with grade logic control. You have the option to choose between FWD and the AWD with Intelligent Control System™.
As a three-row SUV, the 2018 Acura MDX ups the towing strength significantly. From boats to pop-up campers, the MDX offers a sturdy 5,000-lb maximum towing capacity to handle all your needs. This is only made possible by the implementation of its standard 3.5-liter V6 powertrain, which is worth 290 horsepower and 267 lb-ft of torque, when equipped with the advanced SH-AWD® system (Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive™). If you opt for the FWD version of the MDX, you’ll still have access to an incredible 3,500-lb towing capability.
Mated to the V6 powerhouse is a 9-speed automatic transmission with sequential SportShift paddle shifters for precise and controlled handling. Intelligent Variable Timing and lift Control (i-VTEC®), variable cylinder management, and the drive-by-wire throttle system are also integrated in the Acura MDX to maximize driving dynamics.
