2019 Acura RLX: Redesign Info, Release Date

, Senior Pricing Analyst - August 17, 2015

Overview

The Acura RLX is due for its next full redesign for the 2019 model year.

Unfortunately, very little is known about the next generation RLX. Although sources believe the mid-tier Acura TLX has a high likelihood of getting a turbocharged four-cylinder in the not-so-distant future, it appears unlikely Acura will go this route with the next RLX. That being said, competitors such as Cadillac will be aiming for serious performance credentials when the 2016 CT6 debuts powered by a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6.

Although many shoppers have been turning to the TLX or the automaker's excellent crossovers, the RDX and MDX, there are no indications Acura plans to discontinue the struggling RLX. The car continues to be found only in small numbers with a majority of the automaker's advertising focused on their crossovers or their more accessible sedans. It seems unlikely the automaker will turn the tide with the RLX without a substantial investment in technology and the production to support higher sales volumes.

Expect details to emerge as we approach the vehicle's launch.
