2013 Acura MDX Engine Performance

The Acura MDX is a mid-size crossover sport utility vehicle (SUV) manufactured by Acura, a division of the Japan-based auto company Honda. Also known as Honda MDX in Japan and Australia, the MDX SUV offers versatility and excellent performance for adventurous drivers.

The 2010 MDX is powered by a 3.7 liter (3664 cc) 24 valve SOHC V6 VTEC engine rated at 300 hp (224 kW) at 6000 rpm and 275 lb-ft (373 Nm) at 5000 rpm. The 2013 edition is expected to feature the same type of engine under the hood. The engine will be paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission.

This transmission system has been used since 2010 to substitute the older and less efficient 5-speed automatic transmission. With this powerful engine, the 2013 Acura MDX will be able to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 6 seconds. The EPA estimated that the engine consumes 15 miles/US gallon for city use, and 20 miles/US gallon for highway use.

This V6 engine is said to be the strongest of all Honda engines to date.

The Acura MDX is a front engine, front-wheel drive SUV, meaning that it is designed as an all-weather vehicle. The front-wheel layout works well to increase traction in rain, snow, mud or even loose gravels.

2013 Acura MDX Notable Features

As a vehicle with outstanding quality, the 2013 Acura MDX is expected to come with the finest quality attributes such as leather upholstery, power moonroof, heated front seats, and low beam headlamps. 19#8243; wheels, rearview camera, Adaptive Cruise Control, and Active Damper Suspension will also be featured in this crossover SUV.

The MDX also offers different features for people with different interests. The 2013 edition, like the previous editions, is expected to come with 3 package options: the Technology Package, the Sport Package, and the Entertainment Package. The Entertainment Package comes with 9#8243; LCD screen with two cordless Dolby Digital headphones.

The Technology Package is equipped with an Acura/Alpine GPS navigation system with AcuraLink satellite communications with real time XM NavTraffic reporting. Last but not least, the Sport Package includes active suspension dampers. The magneto rheological dampers improve handling depending on the road condition when the vehicle is on Sport/ Comfort mode.

Acura MDX

While the 2012 Acura MDX is estimated to enter showrooms in September 2011, no official announcement has yet been made about when the 2013 MDX will hit the auto market.
