First off, did you know the Acura RLX still exists? I sure as hell didn’t...I don’t even remember them announcing the refresh to make them carry the modern Acura corporate design language.

But aside from that, I decided to build one for shits and giggles and found an issue with how these can be spec’d.

I can’t get a non hybrid AWD RLX, literally it’s not possible. You either get the J35 with FWD, P-AWS, and a gearbox with 3 too many gears or you have to bump up 7k to get the hybrid drivetrain and AWD. Why isn’t there an option to just a AWD V6 RLX when you have that near exact drive train readily available.
