Spied on the Street! 2013 Acura RDX

Brenda's shooters caught a psychedelic-camo'd RDX out testing in the desert over the weekend. Here's what she had to say about it:

First Photos: 2013 Acura RDX!



You might have to wait till next summer if you want to see the all-new RDX without psychedelic appliques, but we caught a running prototype over the weekend, and except for the black and white dizzy tape, the revamped crossover looked like it could be ready to roll down the assembly line any day.

And speaking of assembly line, production of the RDX will move to East Liberty, Oh., alongside Honda's CR-V. The RDX will likely go on sale shortly after it's Honda sibling, and will be available in both front-wheel and all-wheel drive versions.

We've heard conflicting speculation regarding powerplants everything from the return of the first generation's turbo, to a 2.5-liter inline-four. There's also been talk about a hybrid offering, but again there have been conflicting reports as to when the hybrid will be available, but we are anticipating a six-speed automatic transmission.

More details should be trickling out over the next few months.
