2021 Acura MDX: Redesign Info & Release Date

Alex Bernstein
Senior Pricing Analyst - June 17, 2020

Redesign Info

The Acura MDX is expected to see its next redesign for the 2021 model year. Unfortunately, no official specs have been released as of this writing. That said, initial photos reportedly leaked online appear to suggest that the next MDX may see evolutionary changes akin to the Acura Precision Concept revealed back in 2018.

Specs remain an open question at the moment. The current MDX comes with a 3.5-liter V6 rated at 290 hp, although a 321 hp hybrid is also available. While a 9-speed automatic promises good fuel efficiency, our last review found it performed clumsily in certain conditions. Whether or not Acura chooses to address some of those issues remains unclear.

Honda recently announced that the 2021 Pilot will largely be a carryover. Given that the vehicle is closely related to the MDX, we think it's possible that a full update could be in the works for the coming year. In terms of styling, the recent reveal of the all-new 2021 Acura TLX may signal the brand's intent to elevate the sportiness of its lineup.

Release Date

Acura has not yet announced a release date for the next-gen MDX. Having said that, our records indicate that the MDX typically begins arriving in the summer. If that continues to be the case, we think it’s likely that the 2021 MDX will go on sale sometime in the summer of 2020.

Stay tuned for updates to this page based on the latest information.

Key competitors include the Buick Enclave, Audi Q7, and Lexus RX.
