While most SUVs make you choose between power and efficiency, the 2018 Acura MDX takes a different approach. Its wide range of performance configurations all deliver the kind of reliability and excitement provided by each and every Acura vehicle, and they boast excellent fuel economy numbers. However, there are some differences between them, and they’re designed for different drivers. Check out this guide from McGrath Acura to see which one is best for you and your family.
MDX Performance Highlights
3.5L V6 Engine
The MDX starts with a powerful V6 engine that puts out 290 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque, enough acceleration to handle heavy loads.
Consider upgrading to Sport Handling All-Wheel Drive for improved traction and handling, especially when taking sharp turns at high speeds.
8-Speed Dual-Clutch Transmission with Torque Converter
The smooth shifting and responsive dual-clutch transmission features a torque converter which delivers the low speed refinement you want.
Active Damper System
This feature constantly adjusts the MDX’s suspension to match the road surface.
Enjoy Premium Efficiency
All models of the MDX use V6 engines, but there are some differences when it comes to fuel economy. The front-wheel drive with Advance Package supplies 20 mpg city/27 mpg highway* in EPA estimates. That number drops slightly with all-wheel drive with Advance package to 19 mpg city/26 mpg highway*.
