Spied on the Street! 2018 Acura RDX(?) mule?

We *think* we have some spy shots of a 2018 RDX undergoing testing in Death Valley, or at least a mule for it. As you can see this test subject is pretty heavily camouflaged, and Honda's already moved on past that stage with their public road testing of the upcoming CR-V replacement, so that seems to rule out the CR-V. It's possible they're doing some late game powertrain testing for the new CR-V, but note the rather substantial dual exhaust system on this vehicle, which would tend to indicate there's likely more of a performance-oriented drivetrain than we're likely to see in the CR-V. At any rate, have a look at the photos and see what you think.
