In response to strong demand from consumers in warm weather markets Acura also will, for the first time, offer a front wheel drive version of MDX in addition to the all wheel drive (SH-AWD) model that has earned MDX a reputation as a leader in dynamic handling and all weather performance for a luxury SUV.
The concept has an evolutionary design which incorporates “Jewel Eye” LED headlights and large shield grille. The model also has aluminum accents, roof rails and a tailgate mounted spoiler.
An all-new, direct-injected 3.5-liter i-VTEC SOHC V-6 engine with Variable Cylinder Management (VCM) will deliver improved torque and more spirited performance while realizing a significant increase in fuel efficiency to class-leading levels. Special attention was also paid to improving cabin quietness, which is greatly enhanced by the vehicle’s all-new chassis and body design and new sound deadening techniques.
