The 2014 Acura RLX is Acura’s flagship vehicle until the new NSX hits the showrooms in about two years. It is stuffed full of the latest and newest technology including PAWS which in Honda speak stands for ‘Precision All-Wheel-Steering’. Get it? The brand new 2014 Acura RLX is powered by a high revving 3.5L 310 HP V6 engine that powers the front wheels. In another fun and informative TFLcar video we test and review the new top dog Acura from 0-60 MPH to see how fast and how well it drives.
The Acura RLX has been timed between 6.0-6.5 seconds 0-60 MPH at sea level. How much time does this luxury cruiser lose in rarified air of the Colorado Rocky Mountains? The Acura engine is normally aspirated, but it revs relatively high (near 7,000 rpm). Can the high revs get the big Acura into the 7-second range? Watch the video to find out and also see what rating Roman and Nathan give the 2014 Acura RLX.
