The all-new MDX, featuring a 3.5-litre VTEC® V6 engine, 10-speed automatic transmission and fourth-generation Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®), will arrive at dealers early next year. An MDX Type S, Acura’s first high-performance SUV variant, will follow in the summer of 2021.

 

The original 2001 MDX was the industry’s first three-row SUV to be based on a unibody platform, with superior comfort, space and driving performance than existing truck-based SUVs.
