2016 Acura MDX

The Acura MDX just started its third generation last year but Acura already gives the MDX 2016 model year early upgrades which include new transmission, various new luxury features and technologies.

The most significant upgrade that the Acura MDX 2016 model year gets is the new 9-speed automatic transmission, as compared to 6-speed automatic transmission from the previous model years.  Mating with the new transmission is the same Direct-injection 3.5-liter V-6 engine that produces 290 horsepower at 6,200 rpm and 267 lb-ft of torque at 4,500 rpm.

With AWD configuration, the 2016 MDX receives a new Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system with a twin-clutch design that improves torque transfer and handling abilities.

Interior, the 2016 Acura MDX gains multiple luxury upgrades including Multi-View Angle Rear Camera with Dynamic Guidelines, a frameless rearview mirror, Siri voice recognition, and an “easy-entry/exit driver’s seat” that moves 35mm rearward when the driver’s door is opened and TPMS fill assist that sounds an audible alert when the driver inflates the tire to the correct pressure.  Also depending on the trim, the 2016 MDX comes with a bi-directional remote engine starter, idle stop and head up warning.

Acura’s suit of safety and river-assistive technologies – the AcuraWatch which include Lane Keeping Assist, Lane Departure Warning and Forward Collision Warning, is available as a standalone package on all 2016 MDX and are offered as standard equipment on the MDX with Technology Package.

The 2016 Acura MDX went on sale today with the manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) ranging from $42,865 to $57,080.
