Performance

A powerhouse engine and modern drivetrain make the 2016 Acura RLX a joy to drive, whether you are in it for the thrills or simply looking for reliable performance. The vehicle is powered by a strong V6, which uses intelligent variable timing and lift control, variable cylinder, management, direct gas injection, and a drive-by-wire throttle system to produce optimal performance in terms of both power and fuel economy. Two transmission options are available, allowing you to select the responsiveness and drive you need.

2016 Acura RLX Drivetrain

Livewire performance in the 2016 Acura RLX is due to the 3.5L V6 engine, which offers an admirable 310 hp and 272 lb-ft of torque in forward wheel drive. This power is plenty of get-up-and-go for the highway, but still manages competitive fuel economy, making it both powerful and efficient at the same time. Drivetrain options include the 6-speed sequential sportshift transmission with paddle shifters that operate in drive or sport mode for maximum control. The sport hybrid offers a 7-speed dual clutch transmission, which operates as follows:

  • Odd numbered gears and even numbered gears have separate clutches
  • As one gear is in operation, the automatic selector uses sensors to predict and pre-select the next gear for an upshift or a downshift, providing smoother and more efficient performance
  • Using the paddle shifters in “drive” mode, you can shift up or down quickly without engaging in full manual operation
  • Using the paddle shifters in “sport” mode, you can switch to full manual mode which gives you complete control during spirited driving
