Performance

Most models of the 2019 Acura MDX will come with a 3.5-liter direct injection V-6 engine, which gives the third row SUV 290 horsepower and 267 lb-ft of torque. With the power produced by the MDX engine, your SUV will be equipped to tow up to 3,500 lbs which should be plenty for any weekend toys. FWD comes standard on most models, but there is an option for Acura’s Super -Handling All-Wheel Drive, which is available on all trims of the 2019 MDX.

The set-up under the hood of the 2019 MDX contributes to the 22 MPG combined and 19/27 MPG city/highway of the third row SUV. If you decide on the SH-AWD option for the MDX, you will drop 1 MPG highway for fuel efficiency. The fuel economy of the 2019 Acura MDX puts the luxury SUV in the arena with its top rivals, making it an excellent pick for fuel-conscious drivers who need a large vehicle.

 

Features and Technology
