Live from New York! The 2013 Acura RLX Concept is revealed!
 Date: April 04, 2012 10:28
 Submitted by:  JeffX

 Credibility Rating: Not Specified


UPDATE: And the covers are off. The car looks mature and classy. Definitely looks more expensive than the outgoing RL. The shield grill doesn't overpower this design. Styling isn't too aggressive, but it's not bland (IMO). Jeff and I agree, this car looks better in person.

And the part everyone is waiting for...The RLX has 370+ hp, and should achieve 30 mpg city, 30 mpg highway, 30 mpg combined. Impressive for sure, and a good sign for the NSX...

UPDATE: Keynote lead off with the perfect naval flagship analogy, 'The flagship is a fast and technological advanced leader of the fleet.' The three pillars of the of the RLX: connectivity, comfort, and exhilirating performance.

UPDATE: And the show has begun. RDX has already begun production, ILX beginning production in 3 weeks. They also showed a badass new RDX tv spot with an Avengers tie-in.

UPDATE: Folks are filling out the seats for the RLX reveal now. So far the story has been that this was a clean sheet design after the FR V8 flagship got cancelled. Everyone we've talked to is confident that this car is now positioned correctly and makes a much stronger case for itself than its predecessor.

-Gerald

We've made it to the show floor of Jacob Javitz Center in New York City, and hurried over to the Acura booth to set up shop. The RLX awaits its reveal on stage, covered in a semi-sheer drop cloth. Internet service is spotty at best (our 4G-ish "wifi hotspot" is anything but "hot") but we will do our best to post updates throughout the busy day.
