2016 Acura MDX
This is a mid-size luxury crossover. It was originally introduced in 2000, as a replacement for SLX. Last year, Honda presented the third generation of this crossover, made by company’s luxury division called Acura. New model came with many improvements and we doubt that company will make some bigger modifications for 2016 Acura MDX model, because this Japanese manufacturer makes mid-cycle refreshments usually in three years, which means that 2017 year model should come with facelift and other modifications. Until that time, this crossover will keep same characteristics. It will feature company’s recognizable face with Jewel Eye LED Headlights and front bumper with LED fog lamps. The cabin of new Acura MDX will be very luxurious, able to accommodate 7 passengers. It will be also full of hi-tech features which will set the comfort on the even higher level.
2016 Acura MDX powertrain
When it is about engine, 2016 Acura MDX relies on proven variant. It is a 3.5 liter V6 SOHC i-VTEC with direct injection, which is good for 290 horsepower and 267 lb-ft of max torque. Great this about this engine is that it features some of the company’s latest technology achievements like Manual Cylinder Management which, alongside with excellent 6-speed automatic transmission, makes a huge impact on 2016 MDX overall fuel consumption. Just like previous year models, it will be available with FWD and AWD systems.
2016 Acura MDX redesign
Last year, new-generation model came with new body, which is much lighter compared to previous model. The 2016 MDX will use the same body structure, which is characterized by use of extra lightweight materials such as aluminum HSS (High Strength Steel) or magnesium. According to the company, around 2/3 of the total structure is made of these materials. This will provide much better fuel economy. If you add to this new, more aerodynamic body, it is for sure that 2016 Acura MDX will have excellent performances.
2016 Acura MDX release date and price
These details are still unknown. However, we do not expect any surprises with 2016 Acura MDX. It should come somewhere in the second half of next year and we don’t expect any price changes.
