The three-row premium SUV, 2023 Acura MDX, is likely to debut sometime next year. Since Coronavirus epidemic is still with us, the manufacturer postponed this model for the following year, and it basically skipped the 2022 model year. The new spy photos are available, and the upcoming Acura MDX reveals almost identical styling as its sibling TLX sedan. Generally, the same design language is also being seen on the smaller RDX crossover.
Beyond its refreshed look, we expect the MDX to share its powertrains with the TLX S performance variant. This sedan uses a turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6, and it produces 355-hp. In addition, the Acura’s SH-AWD system should be available as standard, along with a 10-speed automatic transmission.
2023 Acura MDX Exterior
The next-generation 2023 Acura MDX is set to get a redesign that will make it more competitive. Some of the spy images are available, and we must admit, the upcoming model looks more sporty. Generally, the Acura MDX is one of the most stylish and best-selling SUVs in its class. It’s clear that a lot of passion and attention has gone into making this model.
The design is sleek, and the MDX shares plenty of cues with the recently revamped TLX sedan and RDX crossover. It features the same unique design language that includes an attractive grille, stylish headlights, and 19-inch wheels. Moreover, most of the upper trims are dressed in more giant 20s shoes with Bridgestone Alenza Sports A/S tires for all season. Compared to the outgoing version, the new one is wider, and it has a longer wheelbase of 2,8 inches.
The spacious three-row SUV, 2023 Acura MDX, will gain a far more premium cabin than its predecessor. It features plenty of modern touches and quality materials. However, like the outgoing model, the following MDX keeps the same 12.3-inch infotainment display and a 12.3-inch digital reconfigurable gauge display.
Generally, Acura’s MDX is one of the rare SUVs in the class that offers plenty of standard equipment. So, even with the base model, you’ll get an Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability, in-dash navigation, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a wireless smartphone charging pad. In terms of safety, Acura is being adding more and more standard driver-assistance tech every year. Features like automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane-departure warning with lane-keeping assist, and adaptive cruise control come standard.
2023 Acura MDX Engine Specs
As mentioned, the new 2023 Acura MDX will most than likely share its powertrain with the TLX S performance variant. This mighty sedan is powered by a potent turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 that can deliver an output of 355-hp. According to various reports, the MDX should also come standard with an Acura’s SH-AWD system, along with a 10-speed automatic transmission.
Besides this powertrain, many speculations indicate that a hybrid drivetrain is also possible as a follow-up to the current MDX’s Sport Hybrid model.
Release Date, Price
Debut of the 2023 Acura MDX will probably happen sometime in 2022. The new model will receive some upgrades that will make it more competitive. Generally, the most exciting news is that it may deploy the mighty engine from the TLX s performance variant.
Even still, the new MDX will likely retain its price advantage, and we think it will start under $50,000, which is in line with other three-row luxury crossovers such as the Genesis GV80, Lexus RX L, and Infiniti QX60.
