NEXT STAGE: Redesign in 2021
Acura's fourth-generation MDX will arrive in dealerships in early 2021 with upscale exterior styling, a modern interior and a performance Type-S variant that marks the first use of that trim in its crossover lineup. The 2022 MDX, previewed by a prototype, is lower and wider than the outgoing model, with an upright grille and longer hood that convey a more muscular stance.
The MDX will come with updated powertrains. On most models, Acura will use its nonturbo 3.5-liter V-6 paired with a new 10-speed automatic transmission. The current MDX uses a 9-speed automatic. The upcoming Type S version will use a new turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 making 355 hp. Acura said the MDX will arrive in U.S. showrooms early in 2021 with the exception of the Type S, which will follow in summer 2021.
NEXT STAGE: Freshen in 2023
The MDX would likely be freshened in 2023.
