The production versions 2013 Acura ILX and 2013 Acura RDX have been presented at the 2012 Chicago Auto Show today, so the automaker has published fresh photos with their new generation sedan and crossover and has also announced the engine options available for the two models.

The 2013 Acura ILX will offer customers the possibility of choosing between three engines, a 2.0-litre 4-cylinder unit rated at 150 HP and 190 Nm of torque for the entry level version which enables 24 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway, a 2.4-litre unit producing 201 HP and 230 Nm of torque for the range topping model (20/29 mpg city/highway) and a 1.5-litre unit coupled to an electric motor.

This third option is part of a gas-electric powertrain and apart from generating 111 HP and 172 Nm of torque the system is also responsible for quite

impressive fuel economy figures of 35 mpg in the city and 38 mpg in the highway. 

As for the 2013 Acura RDX crossover, in this chase the previous turbocharged 2.3-liter 4-cylinder unit has been replaced with a 3.5-litre V6 which outputs 33 additional horses. This means the new RDX will be able to send 273 HP to either its front wheels or to all four wheels (both FWD and AWD versions are available), via its newly developed 6-speed automatic transmission which features a lock-up torque converter.  

Consumption figures for the new RDX are 20 mpg city and 28 mpg highway for the FWD version and 19 mpg and 27 mpg for the AWD model.

Production for the RDX will take place at the East Liberty plant in Ohio, and both models will hit the North American market this Spring.
