Acura Commences Production Of 2013 RDX SUV
Barely a month after the 2013 Acura RDX was unveiled at the Chicago Auto Show, Acura has commenced the production of the model. Currently, production is in process at the new facility in East Liberty, Ohio. The company will not be making use of the Marysville plant which was used for the production of the first generation of the RDX compact utility vehicle.
The second generation Acura RDX will be built using American parts, with the engines being assembled at the nearby Anna, Ohio, and transmissions from Russells Point, Ohio. The model will be built alongside the Honda Crosstour and CR-V crossovers.
Acura is known for making cars for customers seeking luxury, and the new RDX is no exception. And Honda considers that to be the reason behind opting for the East Liberty facility, which is supposedly amongst the best in the world. The company’s hopes for the RDX are sky high with the vehicle featuring a simpler 3.5-liter V-6 and boasting of a good fuel economy and a simpler all-wheel drive setup.
