The history of Acura MDX has begun in 2000, when Acura (the luxury vehicle division of the Japanese automaker Honda) presented a new line of mid-size three-row luxury crossover SUVs, called "Multi-Dimensional luxury" – later, this name was shortened to "MDX". This was the most expensive crossover in Acura's lineup (except for 2009 – 2013 model years when it was surpassed by the ZDX model). Acura MDX was manufactured in three generations.
The first generation (2000–2006) was created to replace the SLX model. Acura MDX came with front engine, all-wheel drive layout and utilizes the same platform as the Pilot model. The first MDX vehicles were equipped with 5-speed automatic transmission and 3.5 L V6 240 hp engine, but in 2003 the engine was upgraded to 265 hp. The MDX from this period featured 106.3 in wheelbase and provided space for 7 passengers.
The second generation (2007–2013) came with a new design and longer wheelbase. The MDX was provided with a variety of modern features, such as: power moonroof, leather interior, and high intensity discharge (Xenon) low beam headlights. The Canadian MDX model was also available with headlight washers. This generation was equipped with a new, more powerful J37A1 3.7L (3,664 cc) 24 valve SOHC V6 VTEC engine and 5-speed or 6-speed automatic transmission.
The third generation was launched in 2013 as a 2014 model. A new front-wheel drive version was presented in the USA, while the all-wheel drive remained the only model available in Canada. The third generation comes with 3.5L J35Y5 (3,471 cc) 24 valve SOHC V6 VTEC engine and 6-speed or 9-speed automatic transmission. The wheelbase is increased to 111 in. This newest generation also features more aerodynamic design that decreases the drag by 16%, which in turn provides superior fuel economy. Plus, the vehicle’s body is now more durable, thanks to the increased use of high-strength steel.
Through its 15-year history, Acura MDX enjoyed high popularity and has become the best-selling three-row luxury crossover of all time. The MDX has also won several awards, including the North American Truck of the Year 2001 Award. And if you're looking for Acura MDX Accessories and Parts, look nowhere but TDotPeformance.ca.
