Under the hood of the 2017 Acura RDX lies a 3.5-liter i-VTEC V-6 engine mated to six-speed sequential automatic gearbox that generates an output of 279 horsepower and 252 pound-feet of torque. With the enhanced Variable Cylinder Management (VCM) system, the engine under the hood of the front-wheel drive RDX model has an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 20 MPG city and 28 MPG highway. The AWD model has an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 19 MPG city and 27 MPG highway. Highway fuel efficiency is optimized when the engine and VCM work together to shut off the cylinders when the vehicle is traveling at cruising speeds. In order to save weight, the engine is comprised of aluminum and the camshaft is hollow. Lastly, the throttle is smooth and responsive in many driving situations thanks to the Drive-by-Wire throttle system. Experience the power of the 2017 Acura RDX for yourself at CardinaleWay Acura Las Vegas.

Rendering of a Acura NSX Roadster

Monday, March 28th, 2016

FVGERG

A rendering has surfaced of an Acura NSX roadster and CardinaleWay Acura Las Vegas is really hoping that it this designer’s imagination becomes a reality. It would be ideal if this roadster rolls off of the assembly line at the same time as the upcoming NSX coupe. The NSX rendering is sporting a Honda badge, as well as new side scoops and a new rear end. The only thing that is missing is the roof as there is a retractable rooftop. We would think that the roadster would receive the same 3.5-liter V-6 engine and three electric motors that are present in the coupe. The powertrain delivers 573 horsepower and 476 pound-feet of torque. We will definitely let you know if this Acura NSX roadster actually makes it to production.

Friday, March 25th, 2016

acura-future-vehicles-mdx-exterior-side-white-city

All the buzz surrounding Acura as of late has been because of the all-new NSX hybrid supercar. Now some of the buzz is being shifted to the 2017 Acura MDX crossover that was revealed at the New York International Auto Show. Even though the hype around the NSX is very apparent, the MDX is an important vehicle to the automaker. Last year, the MDX accounted for one-third of the automaker’s total sales in the U.S. market and it was the second best-selling vehicle within the midsize luxury SUV segment, which happens to be one of the most competitive segments in the market. This will be the first redesign of the third-generation MDX since 2013. Modifications include a new front end with a diamond pentagon front grille, clamshell hood, sculpted body, and jewel-eye headlights. Acura has enhanced the powertrains as well. The Acura MDX Sport Hybrid model, in particular, has been fitted with a 3.0-liter V-6 engine linked to a seven-speed dual clutch transmission to deliver 325 horsepower. Additionally, the model will have a fuel economy of 26 mpg combined. CardinaleWay Acura Las Vegas expects for the 2017 Acura MDX to go on sale this summer.

Step Inside the Acura NSX Factory

Thursday, March 17th, 2016

jtujt

Honda built a facility that effectively combines the craftsmanship of human hands with the precision of automated manufacturing techniques to build the all-new Acura NSX supercar. The facility is a 200,000-squart-foot portion of the Honda Manufacturing of Ohio building in Marysville, Ohio. It took an investment of over $20 million to complete the necessary renovations. The automaker paid close attention to every little detail of the facility as every aspect serves a purpose. The walls and floors were painted in a way that reflects light, the open floor plan prevents the various production processes from becoming isolated, and the glass that is present throughout the facility allows for every process to be clearly seen. Humans are guiding the robots during the production process as the pieces of the chassis are welded to one another by robotic arms that are overseen by veteran workers. There is a welding station for each chassis component and the end product shows no signs of human-operated welding. Before being painted with five color coats and two clear coats, the chassis undergoes extensive quality control. Following paint, every chassis is put on an individual rolling car to be inspected by a small group of workers for about 60 minutes. Large-screens use advanced technology to display each step and the production process in real time. The facility can crank out about 10 to 12 cars per day.
