Acura MDX: Next-Generation Performance and Comfort

290 HORSEPOWER3
10 SPEED

The Infiniti QX60 and Acura MDX are both impressive three-row SUVs. The 3.5-liter V-6 engine in the MDX boasts 290 horsepower3 and is paired to an advanced front double-wishbone suspension, giving you outstanding muscle and control. Torque vectoring, exclusive to the available Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®), lets you channel that power for improved handling in almost any condition. And when you're ready to take manual control, standard paddle shifters put all 10 gear ratios at your fingertips.

The seven-seat Acura MDX with Advance Package also comes with a wealth of premium amenities including a navigation system, panoramic moonroof and hands-free access power tailgate. Front row seats are heated and ventilated while perforated Milano leather seats throughout the SUV let everyone ride in comfort. Second-row passengers can also enjoy heated outboard seating.
