Transmission with Sequential SportShift Paddle Shifters and Grade Logic Control

While engine operation is important, the 2015 Acura RDX offers additional features that work with your engine to provided added performance and efficiency in any conditions. Two separate driving modes and steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters give you great flexibility to operate your crossover sport utility vehicle in a manner that provides the best ride. In addition, the included Grade Logic Control helps your transmission shift more efficiently on hills, reducing the need to “hunt” for gears as you encounter different grades. Shift Hold Control works with your RDX as you enter into tight curves, keeping the transmission in lower gear so you can maintain control and performance.

You can operate your RDX in one of two drive modes, optimizing performance for your driving conditions. In Drive mode, you get smooth gear changes with an emphasis on fuel efficiency. In normal driving conditions, this is the mode that keeps you steady. If you want to opt for higher performance on the highway or winding roads, you will want to select Drive mode, which offers quicker acceleration and allows the engine to rev higher before shifting up. Sequential SportShift Paddle Shifters on the 2015 Acura RDX are designed to work differently with each driving mode for the easiest operation and performance. Use your Paddle Shifters to enjoy the feel of a manual transmission without the work of a clutch. These steering wheel-mounted controls operate as follows:

  • In Drive mode, the paddle shifters will quickly change gears and then resume automatic transmission operation once you have reached a stable speed.
  • In Sport mode, you can use the paddle shifters to switch to full manual mode when you need high performance driving or extra help on hills
