The all-new third-generation 2014 Acura MDX seven-passenger luxury SUV, on a completely new platform, is powered by an all-new 290 horsepower direct-injected 24-valve 3.5-liter i-VTEC V-6 engine with Variable Cylinder Management™ mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission with Sport Mode and Sequential SportShift Paddle Shifters. The new MDX will be offered in both Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ and, for the first time, a more affordable front-wheel-drive model that gets an EPA rated at 20 city/28 highway/23 combined miles per gallon.
Measuring 193.6 inches in overall length, the 2014 MDX is 2 inches longer than the current model riding on a 111-inch wheelbase that's up 2.75 inches from the previous model. The 2014 Acura MDX will be available in four grades: MDX, MDX with Technology package, the MDX with Technology and Entertainment packages, and the top-of-the-line MDX with Advance and Entertainment packages. The Alabama-made 2014 Acura MDX is scheduled to go on sale at U.S. Acura dealers nationwide this summer with pricing details announced closer to launch.
