#1 of 52 2010 Acura RDX
Jan 24, 2009 (12:03 pm)
2010 RDX will get a facelift. It will get that Power Plenum grille that Acura really likes. The Power plenum grille is the same grille as the 09 TL, RL, and TSX. Acura has decided to build a cheaper FWD model more more sales. That would make a nice base model. The gadgets should be upgraded. The Navigation system is all new for 2010. Features a 8.0" WVGA display thats much better than the current one that has some really nice features like XM NavWeather, Scenic routes, revised backup camera, better hardware and a 40 GB HDD,. The maps are stored on a 40 GB HDD that has a 12.4 GB partition for your favorite music.
There will be a USB port for your 5th gen and up iPod's and USB storage devices. Bluetooth will now have A2DP on tech package models so you can stream music from any phone that's A2DP compatible. There might be some more new changes but this is pretty much it. The 2010 Acura RDX will hit showrooms sometime in July to August time frame.

Wondering more about the 2010. I have read the same info about the exterior and FWD but the electronics info you posted only seems to appear here....
When does Acura typically release "official" info on model changes?
I'm trying to make a decision between a 2009 and a 2010. Given the changes you think are in store for the gadgets, I would wait... Of course one also wonders what incentives will look like for a new model year.

August-September might be when they announce information. Thats when Acura announces details but they have launched some stuff earlier. You may never know.

Do you believe is worth to wait for the 2010 model or should I just go ahead and lease the 2009 version? I have the feeling that I will not get the good deal for the 2010 model as the one available now for the 2009.

I think you can get a good deal for the 2010. I've seen a pic of the 2010 and it looks ok. If you can wait for the 2010 then it might be great. It's going to have some new improvements like USB/iPod integration and stuff like that.

It depends on how long you want to wait to get into an RDX. Seems like the 2010's won't be here until Sept/Oct. I thought by now we would have more details on what the changes will be other than the couple of spy shots and rumors.
You could also pick up a used 2008 and forget about the 2009. There isn't much difference between the 2007 - 2009. Then when the 2010's come out and you like the enhancements - upgrade. That's exactly what I'm doing. Saved a lot of $ (in my case $10K) buying nice used 2008 a couple of months and enjoying the vehicle now - and won't take a bad hit to upgrade to a 2010.
I'm hoping keyless entry, iPOD integration (although I installed a DICE kit in my 2008), and whatever other techie upgrades (better NAV screen would be nice)

Sooner or later, maybe by 2010 MY, they will convert the engine to DFI w/CR of ~12:1, and either completely drop the turbo or simply detune/derate it, and thereby improve FE by up to 30%
Maybe even an Atkinson/Miller/West cycle engine with ~50% FE improvement.
One can hope/dream....

Can you please stop posting in every thread with this same argument, wwest?
Same post just yesterday o another forum: http://forums.carmudgeons.com/showthread.php?t=24873
Long thread you started just two weeks ago on the subject: http://www.eng-tips.com/viewthread.cfm?qid=245212&page=1
Same post on a Mazda CX-7 forum: http://www.mazdas247.com/forum/showthread.php?t=123674784&page=4

2008, actually about Acura this time: http://rdx.acurazine.com/forums/showthread.php?t=682916
Here's a quote on, guess what, the same subject from May 16, 2007: "Yeah, I guess I'll just have to go ahead and do it to prove my position"
So go do it already, or send a resume to Honda/Toyota/Mazda. In the meantime, please stop spamming every car forum.

I'd find it troubling if the same person posted contradictory views on different forums but none of that is partcularly relevant here. Let's stick to the designated topic and avoid making a topic of each other. Thanks!
