Uteful Digressions: Acura's New RDX Prototype

Acura introduced its new small luxo-ute prototype, the RDX, this afternoon. The lil' X3 fighter is built on Acura's new global light-truck platform and powered by an all-aluminum turbocharged 2.3-liter i-VTEC mill producing 240 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. It's also got paddle shifters to work the five-speed SportShift tranny. Whether the company will build his swankness — or some reasonable facsimile thereof — is all but assured. Maybe in 2008.
