Anyone notice the horsepower rating of the new 2.0T RDX? Does anyone know how Honda achieves this increase over our 2.0T Accords? Different hardware or just software update? The advertised torque is 280 ft. Lbs. They are using the 10 speed A/T as well. Increased horsepower and torque pushing a heavier vehicle with AWD. Shows confidence with that trick automatic. Of course there is a possibility the trans was upgraded for this application.

Yeah the new RDX is looking to be quite the performance crossover SUV. I know a lot of the components in the 2019 model are brand new to the platform, so I'm assuming that the increase is the result of tuning and software. Suppose they figured a heavier vehicle would need some extra power on tap.

Seen it entirely and for that reason I will be looking out for a Lexus UX rivaling Acura. Finally they got the recipe right, now scaling it up/down accordingly remains. What are the odds we'll see a UX and Q30/QX30 rival?
