Read below to learn more, and whether you're in the Treasure Coast area or shopping from nearby in Orlando, Miami, Fort Lauderdale, or West Palm Beach, the Coggin Acura of Ft. Pierce Research Center has you covered.

Under the Hood

The MDX draws both power and efficiency from an all-new 3.5-liter, 290-horsepower V-6 engine that features Direct Gas Injection, Variable Cylinder Management™ (VCM®) and the Acura i-VTEC® system.
  • Intelligent Variable Timing and lift Control (i-VTEC) increases horsepower by advancing valve timing relative to engine rpm. High-rpm airflow is enhanced at approximately 4500 rpm when intake valve openings are extended deeper and for longer duration.   
  • VCM® significantly improves highway fuel efficiency by automatically changing the V-6 engine to run on six or three cylinders, depending on driving conditions. The cylinder activation is so seamless, it will likely go unnoticed by your passengers.   
  • Direct Gas Injection injects fuel directly into each cylinder injector for a more precise and effective air fuel mixture. It also uses significantly less fuel during engine starts. The cooling effect of fuel injected directly into the cylinder allows the incorporation of the power-increasing effects of a higher compression ratio without engine knocking.   
  • The Drive-by-Wire™ throttle system varies throttle sensitivity to provide the appropriate throttle response and feel to different driving conditions.   
  • The net result? The MDX engine produces 290 horsepower at 6200 rpm, and 267 lb.-ft. of torque (SAE net) at 4500 rpm and has an EPA Ratings27 of 19 / 27 / 22 mpg (city/highway/combined) for the front-wheel drive model and 18 / 26 / 21 for the SH-AWD model. Models with the Idle Stop feature have even higher ratings.


    Whether backing out of a parking space in a busy lot or on a street, the MDX has your back. It can warn you of approaching vehicles you may not be able to see if large vehicles are parked beside you.   
  • Sensors located near the rear corners can detect approaching vehicles from either side of the vehicle.   
  • With the Multi-view rear camera50 in Normal or Wide mode, the driver is alerted to a detected, approaching vehicle by an audible chime and amber arrows in the rear camera monitor.
Other Exterior Features:
  • Parking Sensors
  • Blind Spot Information System
  • Key Remote Functions
  • Speed Sensitive Wipers
