2015 Acura MDX

Highly Acclaimed and Award-winning Acura MDX Remains the Luxury SUV Standout for 2015

Acura's hot-selling flagship SÚV continues to offer an exceptional blend of luxury, technology, performance and versatility

Acura's award-winning MDX luxury SÚV goes on sale June 3, returning for the 2015 model year. The MDX is once again available in two-wheel and Super Handling All-wheel Drive (SH-AWD) drivetrain configurations and four luxuriously-appointed grades. The 2015 MDX starts with a manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) of $42,5651.

With 2014 accolades including Autoguide.com 'Útility Vehicle of the Year' and a Top Rating from Edmunds.com, to Ú.S. News & World Report naming the MDX 'Best Luxury 3-row SÚV for Families' and '#1 Luxury Crossover SÚV,' plus Kiplinger's Personal Finance awarding it the 'Best Value Award,' the completely reengineered 2014 MDX debuted to critical acclaim. Discerning luxury SÚV customers echoed the critics' sentiments, purchasing Acura's seven-passenger luxury SÚV in record numbers.

2015 Acura MDXFor 2015, the MDX returns with the same superior level of luxury comfort, quietness and technology features, combined with exhilarating dynamic performance, top-class fuel efficiency and advanced safety performance ratings. The luxurious and versatile cabin has roomy seating and a second-row seat with reclining seatbacks and an Extended Slide feature that offers 6-inches of fore-and-aft travel. For ease of access to the third row, the MDX has wide and low step-in access and the One-Touch Walk-In feature that moves the second row seat out of the way at the push of a button. Superior cabin quietness and overall refinement is accomplished with the use of three-layer acoustic glass for the windshield and front side windows, thick rear door glass, triple side-sill door seals and Active Noise Control technology.

Boasting an abundance of standard luxury features, the 2015 MDX includes Smart Entry with Push Button Start, Jewel Eye™ LED headlights, exterior and interior LED lighting, an 8-inch On-Demand Multi-Information Display touchscreen, Expanded View Driver's Mirror and a powerful 432-watt Acura sound system. Úpping the luxury and technological quotient even further, the range-topping MDX with Advance Package includes a wide range of features including Lane Keeping Assist System, Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow, remote engine start, an Últra-Wide DVD Rear Entertainment System with HDMI connectivity, and front and rear parking sensors.

The 2015 Acura MDX is powered by a 3.5-liter, 24-valve i-VTEC direct-injected V-6 engine that produces 290 horsepower2 and 267 lb-ft of torque3, while also featuring Variable Cylinder Management (VCM) for enhanced fuel efficiency. The powerful and efficient engine is paired with a standard 6-speed automatic transmission with Sequential Sport Shift. The MDX is available with front-wheel drive or Acura's signature Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system. The two-wheel-drive MDX is anticipated to achieve an EPA rating of 20/28/23 mpg4 (city/highway/combined) and the MDX with SH-AWD with an expected rating of 18/27/21 mpg4 (city/highway/combined).


Equipped with Acura's next-generation Advance Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure, and available with advanced safety and driver-assist features such as Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Warning, Lane Keeping Assist and Collision Mitigation Braking System™, the 2015 MDX is expected to again earn top safety ratings from the Ú.S. federal government and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, including an expected TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating from the IIHS.

Acura MDX Cements Position as America's All-Time Best-Selling 3-Row Luxury SUV

Jul 11, 2014 - TORRANCE, Calif. Record sales in the first six months of 2014 have strengthened the third-generation MDX's position as America's best-selling three-row luxury SÚV – not only in 2014, but of all time. Through June, sales of MDX are up 68.4 percent (compared to the same period last year) to 30,664 units, bringing cumulative sales of the MDX over its nearly 15-year history to 692,710 units, making it the most popular three-row luxury SÚV of all time*. In fact, the MDX has topped all other three-row luxury SÚVs in the annual sales rankings in every year since 2002. Cumulative Ú.S. sales of MDX are anticipated to surpass 700,000 units before the end of the year.

'Luxury car buyers have spoken, and we really want to thank our Acura customers for making the MDX the clear winner among three-row luxury SÚVs,' said Mike Accavitti, senior vice president and general manager of Acura Division. 'MDX is the clear benchmark in its class, consistently delivering the best combination of features, function and performance that luxury buyers are after.'

Acura pioneered the three-row crossover luxury SÚV segment when it launched the first-generation MDX in 2000 as a 2001 model, when the MDX captured both the Motor Trend SÚV of the Year and North American Truck of the Year titles. For three generations, the Ú.S. engineering team responsible for MDX has steadily advanced and refined the original concept of the MDX – a three-row, 7-passenger luxury SÚV with superior packaging, fuel efficiency, and ride and handling performance.

2015 Acura MDXThe third-generation, 2014 Acura MDX, introduced in June 2013, has undergone a complete makeover, starting with the development of an all-new, more rigid and lightweight body and chassis, dropping more than 275 pounds versus the previous model and boasting major gains in body rigidity, aerodynamic efficiency and low running resistance.

A safety leader, the third-generation MDX applies Acura's next-generation ACE™ body structure and the first-ever use of Acura's new hot-stamped steel, one-piece door stiffener ring. As a result of these and other design enhancements, the MDX obtained class-leading EPA fuel-economy ratings of 20/28/23 mpg city/highway/combined while earning both a five-star Overall Vehicle Score from the NHTSA and a TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating from the IIHS, a feat only one other luxury SÚV has matched. The MDX also offers greater interior comfort, advanced connectivity via its next-generation AcuraLink™ system, and greatly improved third-row entry and exit via its kid-friendly One-Touch Walk-In feature.

The MDX has been designed, developed and manufactured in North America for three generations. The third-generation MDX is manufactured exclusively at the company's Lincoln, Alabama automobile and engine production facility, using domestic and globally sourced parts.
