If you’re in the market for a new vehicle to help you take on any weather and road conditions Ocean may bring our way, consider an Acura AWD model. Which Acura models have AWD? You can find AWD on the Acura TLX, RLX, RDX, MDX, and NSX. What exactly does Acura AWD technology do for your safety and control on Red Bank roads and beyond? Read on below to learn more about models like the Acura TLX AWD with advanced all-wheel Acura innovation.


Acura AWD Models

The Acura AWD technology is called Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®), and is available on almost all models: from AWD SUVs like the Acura MDX SH AWD to the Acura TLX AWD and even the NSX supercar. In fact, the Acura ILX is the only model without available SH-AWD®. The full line-up of Acura AWD models is as follows:

  • Acura TLX AWD
  • Acura RLX Sport Hybrid (SH) AWD
  • Acura RDX AWD
  • Acura MDX AWD
  • Acura MDX SH AWD
  • Acura NSX AWD

Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®)

What exactly is Acura Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ technology? This available AWD system bolsters performance and handling like traditional all-wheel drive, but does so smarter than ever before so you can have the most seamless transitions on Freehold roads. The system automatically adjusts power sent to front and rear wheel by constantly monitoring:

  • Wheel speed
  • Steering angle
  • Lateral G-force
  • Yaw rate

By continually sensing these measurements, your Acura AWD system sends 90% of power to front wheels when driving in a straight line for added fuel efficiency. Conversely, it can transfer 45% of engine power to the rear wheels during aggressive acceleration to increase your traction and control, and even increase stability by revolving the outside rear wheel up to 2.7% faster than the other wheels on tight turns.
