2021 Acura MDX: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Model Preview

The Acura MDX was set to be fully redesigned for the 2021 model year as the current generation has been around since 2014. However, an Acura spokesperson has confirmed that Covid-19 led a slight delay and the fourth-generation MDX will now debut as a 2022 model early next year.

At the moment, it's unclear if the current MDX will continue on for the 2021 model year. According to current inventory levels, there are no 2021 MDX vehicles available at dealers nationwide. Given that 2020 is almost over and the new MDX will be arriving in just a few months, it looks as though the 2021 model may be skipped altogether.

With the discontinuation of the Acura RLX, the MDX has become the brand's flagship vehicle. It will compete with the BMW X5, GMC Acadia, and Volvo XC90.
