Which Acura Vehicles Have AWD?

Acura RDX AWD

Our Springfield Township customers love their Acura AWD vehicles, like the Acura MDX SH AWD and the Acura TLX AWD. We can’t blame them. So do we! The Acura SH-AWD® system is an incredibly advanced all-wheel drive system that provides a very smooth ride and superior handling. Let’s delve into the details about that impressive system, as well as list out the Acura vehicles that offer all-wheel drive.


How Does Acura SH-AWD® Work?

The “SH-AWD®” in Acura SH-AWD® stands for “Super Handling All-Wheel Drive”. And boy, does it live up to its name. No wonder it’s so popular with Union County drivers. Here are some of the things you can expect from all-wheel drive vehicles like the Acura MDX SH-AWD and Acura TLX AWD:

  • Weight is shifted to the rear wheels during acceleration, which results in more traction.
  • Wheel speed, angle, and yaw rate are constantly monitored to determine how much power should be distributed between the front and rear wheels.
  • When accelerating on a curve, 70% of torque is sent to the outside rear wheel as weight is shifted, providing more control.
  • The outside rear wheel also revolves faster when navigating a curve to increase control.
  • 90% of power is sent to the front wheels when driving on a straightaway, which results in improved fuel economy.

What Acura AWD Models are Available?

Nearly every Acura automobile offers an AWD drivetrain option. The only Acura vehicle that does not come in an all-wheel drive version is the Acura ILX. That means you can enjoy the Acura SH-AWD® while driving through Bridgewater in these fine vehicles:
