2017 Honda Acura RLX – Technology Package


   The Acura RLX is a full-size luxury sedan manufactured by Honda and sold under their Acura division, released in 2013. Succeeding the Acura RL, the RLX offers two versions, a front-wheel drive base model equipped with Acura’s Precision All-Wheel Steer (P-AWS) four-wheel steering system, and a hybrid variant featuring SH-AWD. The RLX was unveiled at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show and went on sale on March 15, 2013. Production of the RL ended at the Saitama facility on June 16, 2012, to begin factory changeover to the RLX.

The engine for all RLX models is a 3.5-liter, 310-horsepower V-6 engine that features Direct Gas Injection, Variable Cylinder Management™ and the Acura i-VTEC® system

Intelligent Variable Timing and lift Control (i-VTEC®) increases horsepower by advancing valve timing relative to engine rpm. High-rpm airflow is enhanced by opening intake valves longer and deeper at approximately 4500 rpm

Variable Cylinder Management™ significantly improves highway fuel efficiency by automatically changing the V-6 engine to run on six or three cylinders, depending on driving conditions. The cylinder activation is seamless and not felt by driver or passengers.

Direct Gas Injection injects fuel directly into each cylinder with a multi-hole injector for a more precise and effective air fuel mixture. It also uses significantly less fuel when the engine is being started.

Fuel that is injected directly into the cylinder also has a cooling effect, which allows the power-increasing effects of a higher compression ratio without engine knocking.

The Drive-By-Wire™ throttle system varies throttle sensitivity to provide the appropriate throttle response and feel to different driving conditions.

For front-drive models, the net result is an engine that produces 310 horsepower at 6500 rpm, 272 lb-ft. of torque at 4500 rpm (both SAE net) while having an EPA Fuel Economy Ratings2 of 20 / 30 / 23 MPG (city/highway/combined).

Approach the RLX with your Keyless Access remote and it automatically remembers your climate preferences. The GPS-linked solar sensing system measures the sun’s position and intensity in order to intuitively make adjustments to cabin temperatures.

A high-mounted 8-inch LED screen lets you find destinations and directions using the Voice Recognition System. Avoid delays on busy streets and freeways using AcuraLink Real-Time Traffic™ with advanced Traffic Rerouting.

Every aspect of the RLX has been masterfully orchestrated to ensure a smooth, quiet ride. Without increasing weight or thickness, the precision-engineered acoustic windshield and door glass reduce wind noise to tame the sound of the road, keeping it outside where it belongs.

Tuned by Grammy Award-winning producer Elliot Scheiner, the ELS Studio Premium Audio System transforms your RLX into a personal soundstage with extended frequency range, lower distortion and enhanced clarity.

We’ve implemented intuitive AcuraWatch™ safety and driver assist technology in every RLX vehicle. With the Collision Mitigation Braking System, Lane Keeping Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control and Road Departure Mitigation – your RLX is fully loaded with the most advanced Acura safety and driver assistive features.
