Acura to debut revised 2016 RDX in Chicago

An updated Acura RDX is just a few weeks away.

Honda's Acura luxury division has confirmed that it will show an updated version of its popular RDX crossover at next month's Chicago auto show.

More of a mid-cycle update than clean-sheet refresh, the 2016 RDX will arrive with fresh styling both inside and out. Acura says the revised RDX will also boast performance and safety improvements.

No other details were given, but it's likely that the 2016 RDX will adopt Acura's latest nine-speed automatic transmission. That new gearbox will be paired to Acura's familiar 3.5L V6, although we could see a jump in the RDX's current output of 273 horsepower and 251 lb-ft of torque.

On the safety front, look for the RDX to adopt the latest technologies from the TLX sedan, such as forward collision warning and lane keeping assist.

The 2016 Acura RDX will be officially unveiled on February 12.
