Video: 2015 Acura MDX AWD Off-Road Test Review

Posted by   on November 14th, 2014 No comments

2015 Acura MDX Off-Road

The EverymanDriver Dave Erickson gets behind the wheel of a 2015 Acura MDX SH-AWD for another of his off-road test reviews. The hills were steep and rugged at the Spokane ORV Park, at one point forcing the SH-AWD equipped MDX to push through successfully on just three wheels.

 ”WOW… impressive… People call these cars like the MDXs, RDXs mall-finders, you know they’re just a family vehicle or a high end luxury vehicle that people take to the mall and the don’t really take it off-road. But if you want to… you can.”- Dave Erickson

Watch the 8:13-minute off-road review below.

Video: 2014 Acura RDX AWD Off-Road Test Review

2014 Acura RDX AWD Off-Road Test Review

Most people won’t associate the 2014 Acura RDX with off-roading, but that’s not stopping Everyman Driver‘s Dave Erickson from punishing it through a muddy off-road test review at Washington’s Riverside State Park ORV Area. While it lacks the SH-AWD found in its big brother the MDX, the RDX’s All-Wheel Drive with Intelligent Control and 8.1 inches(205 mm) of ground clearance are enough to handle all but two of the steepest challenges in this video.

Watch the Off-Road Test Review below or visit everymandriver.com for their detailed review of the 2014 Acura RDX AWD.

Drive to Five Review: 2014 Acura RLX Advance

Drive to Five Review: 2014 Acura RLX Advance

The Acura RLX greeted me with “Come on in, Tyson,” by illuminating its exterior door handle as I approached the driver’s side. I stepped carefully over the stainless steel door sill and settled into the ivory-skinned bucket seat. My index finger instinctively went for the start button and awakened 310 well-trained horses from their slumber. The subtle sound of Jazz music drifted through the airwaves via 14 high-end speakers, and the car’s automatic climate control immediately customized the cabin environment to my liking. This, my friends, was not just a car. It was a full-blown, Acura-fied luxury travel experience and I had just scored a front-row seat.

RLX Heritage

In its day, the Acura Legend was the biggest and the best that the Honda lineup of automobiles had to offer. When my Legend LS coupe was new in 1994, it sold for a whopping $41,885. For comparison, a top-line Honda Accord EX at the time was $19,950. The Legend flagship had features that were far ahead of its time. Twenty years later, the Acura RLX carries on that same mission: It delivers unsurpassed tech features, the most advanced safety systems in the industry, and performance levels that only sports cars could dream of in the 1990′s.
