Desert storm 2012: 2014 Acura RLX Spied in Death Valley!

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.
