2022 Acura MDX Reveal December 8th

Most luxurious MDX yet on way

  • All-new Acura arriving next week

  • Production version of Prototype shown in August


Acura is revealing the latest version of its flagship next week. Two months after giving us a glimpse of the new model in prototype form, the all-new Acura MDX is ready to be seen.

The best selling model all-time for Acura in this country, the MDX is getting what the automaker calls “its most dramatic and far-reaching redesign in 20 years.” That means much more emotional styling outside, transforming the MDX from what has been a dull vehicle in the four generations so far into, at least looking at the prototype we saw in October, a vehicle with much more presence and visual flair. While still wearing Acura’s pentagonal grille, it gains sharper rear haunches and a much more interesting taillight treatment.

Acura reminds us that the MDX was the first three-row on a unibody platform back when it arrived, and the latest is expected to be aimed at the same goals of comfort and space but on a scale much greater than back in 2001.

The new MDX will be powered by a 3.5L V6 and a 10-speed automatic as well as the fourth-generation of Super Handling All-Wheel Drive and is set to arrive at dealers early next year. A higher-performance Type S model is expected later in the year with the S-specific 3.0L turbo V6 and 355 hp.

Inside the prototype was a 12.3-inch digital dash and matching HD centre display, the largest ever put in an Acura. The version shown had a 1,000-watt 25-speaker audio system and we expect the production model to offer that too. If only on the top-spec cars.

The full reveal will happen next Tuesday, our first look at the production 2022 Acura MDX
