RLX Dragstrip Run

2014 Acura RLX on the dragstrip at Firebird International Raceway in Phoenix. This was the dealer introduction and training for Acura sales consultants. The times shown were essentially 'hand timed' with four people in the car. I think with another run or two, we could have gotten a better launch and less weight would have helped too.

TOV Dyno Test: 2014 Acura RLX Advance
TOV's first Dyno test of the 2014 Acura RLX Advance. The 2014 Acura RLX Advance features an all new 3.5L Earth Dreams V6 (J35Y4) with Direct Injection. It is rated at 310hp@6500rpm and 272lb-ft@4500rpm. The test vehicle was provided by the manufacturer and had approximately 750 miles on the odometer at the time of the test. As you can see on our Dyno plot, the transmission upshifted before ever reaching the theoretical 6500rpm HP peak. This test was performed in 4th gear in "Sport-Manual" mode.
