Desert storm 2012: 2014 Acura RLX Spied in Death Valley!
 Date: June 15, 2012 11:37

 Credibility Rating: Not Specified


There are some pretty good details revealed in these shots. For one thing, we can see from the sidewall of the tires that this RLX is wearing 245/40R19s. Perhaps more important is the load rating - 98Ws. That corresponds to a max load rating of 1653lbs per tire. The current RL SH-AWD has 96Vs (1565lbs per corner) so that indicates that this is model is most likely a Sport-Hybrid AWD model and it is probably heftier than the outgoing model by 100-200lbs. At this point, we're guessing the listed curb weight will land in the 4200-4300lb range.
