How much does the 2022 Acura RDX cost?

The 2022 Acura RDX price starts at $41,145 for the base model. Unlike other SUVs which offer various trim levels to choose from, the Acura RDX only has one trim level, and then you can add on packages. There are five packages, according to Edmunds: Technology, A-Spec Technology, Advance, A-Spec Advance, and PMC Edition. While this may seem confusing at first – don’t you usually have to choose which version you want? – it actually makes car shopping easier. Each of these packages include a variety of features that make customizing your RDX easy – and limits how much extra stuff that you don’t need you end up with.

The 2022 Acura RDX has a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 272 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque. This is matched to a 10-speed automatic transmission. The RDX comes standard with front-wheel-drive though all-wheel is available for the base model and the Technology packages. All-wheel-drive comes standard on the Advance packages and the PMC Edition.
