2014 Acura MDX Overview

Tamara Warren
Automotive Editor - December 12, 2013

The third-generation MDX is a midsize definition of family luxury for the Acura brand. The seven-passenger vehicle uses a 3.5-liter engine that produces 290 horsepower, and is offered in both two-wheel drive and all-wheel drive. The two-wheel drive has earned an EPA rating 20 mpg city and 28 mpg highway. Acura’s super-handling all-wheel drive system is also available on all models, but drops EPA ratings to 18 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway.

What's New for 2014

It’s a whole new MDX from top to bottom, from a new platform to a new 3.5-liter engine.
