New 2022 Acura MDX Redesign


 The brand new, three-row flagship SUV has arrived, and its name is the 2022 Acura MDX. Now in its fourth generation, the new Acura MDX is completely skipping the 2021 model year and calling itself the 2022 MDX. With modern styling, highly-futuristic technology, and an upgraded powertrain, the Acura MDX redesign sets the tone for the automaker moving forward. The 2022 Acura MDX is sporty, stylish, and has purposeful lines that disguise its family-hauling, minivan-like capability with a head-turning SUV design. The vehicle is longer, wider, and taller than its previous iteration, and every inch is crafted skillfully. To put it simply, it's the most premium, sophisticated, and performance-focused SUV in Acura history. You can get yours starting in February of 2021. Until then, let's dive deeper into what this futuristic car can offer you.

The 2022 Acura MDX Redesign Trim & Specs

When the new Acura MDX is released, it will be offered in four trims: the base, Technology, A-Spec, and Advance. It will have a starting MSRP of $46,9001 for the base trim with Front-Wheel Drive (scroll to our FAQ section below to learn more about the starting price for each trim).

Acura will also be releasing the 2022 Acura MDX S-Type. The S-Type will be a fully-loaded and high-powered version of the Acura MDX redesign. There is no pricing for this iteration available yet, and unlike the above trims, it won't be available until the summer of 2021.

No matter which trim you pick, you will have some of the most advanced technology appointments right at your fingertips. Your 2022 Acura MDX will have a brand-new, reconfigurable 12.3-inch Precision Cockpit™ all-digital instrument display, a panoramic moonroof, Apple CarPlay & Android Auto connectivity, a wireless charging pad, a 12.3-inch ultra-wide HD center display, USB-A & USB-C ports throughout the cabin, an optional 10.5" head-up display, True Touchpad Interface, and Amazon Alexa capability that allows you to run smart home commands & online searches with a simple voice command. Welcome to the future.

The 2022 Acura MDX Power

The New Acura MDX will be powered by an advanced 3.5-liter direct-injected i-VTEC™ V6 engine that gets you 290HP and 267 lb-ft of torque. Acura got rid of the previous 9-speed automatic transmission and now gives you a 10-speed automatic transmission with Sequential SportShift and standard paddle shifters. This gives your drive a wider gear ratio range and smooth transitioning. Front-Wheel Drive will come standard on the base model, but the newest version of the Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD) is available as well & comes standard on higher trims.

The 2022 Acura MDX with Front-Wheel Drive will get an estimated 19 city and 26 highway MPG, and versions with the SH-AWD will get up to 19 city and 25 highway MPG.2 The SH-AWD can send 40% more torque to the rear wheels and another 30% to the car's left or right side, depending on traction needs. This vehicle is so smart that you don't even have to push a button for it to do all of that on its own. You'll also enjoy the brand-new ultra-rigid platform that gets a model-first, double-wishbone front suspension. And, you'll have access to the standard Integrated Dynamics System, which allows you to shift between Snow, Comfort, Normal, Sport, Individual modes depending on your driving conditions.

As if all of that wasn't enough to satisfy your need for speed, Acura continues its pursuit of "Precision Crafted Performance" with the 2022 Acura MDX Type S. This variant will be powered by a 3.0L V6 engine that gives you a mind-blowing 355HP and 354 lb-ft of torque - making it the most powerful Acura MDX ever. Vroom, vroom.

The 2022 Acura MDX Interior & Safety

You'll feel like the Queen or King of the world when you step inside this vehicle. You get to choose between brushed aluminum or open-pore wood trimming for the interior of your 2022 Acura MDX. Leather will surround all three rows of seating giving every passenger a comfortable experience. You also get to decide between one of 27 different LED ambient light schemes. Each one is named after different road tracks or race tracks from around the world, so you can feel like a racecar driver who can conquer the globe with an ambience setting for wherever you want to go.

Every SUV driver wants a car that can carry everything they need, from people to cargo. And this one can. The new Acura MDX has more cargo space than ever before. You'll get 16.3 cubic feet of trunk space, under-floor cargo space, 39.1 cubic feet of space with the third row folded, and 71.4 cubic feet of space with both back rows folded. The possibilities are endless. It's up to you to decide what adventure this dynamic vehicle will take you on.

And whenever you adventure, you'll adventure safely. Every 2022 MDX comes with the AcuraWatch safety suite. Driving aids in the suite include forward collision warning, lane departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, and the all-new Traffic Jam Assist.

Traffic Jam Assist can do many things. It can combine adaptive cruise control with lane-keep assist to help you navigate congested traffic situations. And, it's radar-based, low-speed braking system can sense solid objects at low speeds. If you come across one, the SUV will hit the brakes for you, if you don't do it yourself.
