A redesigned 2022 Acura MDX is rolling into dealership showrooms now, and in almost every way, it’s a better three-row crossover luxury suv than the vehicle it replaces. It looks better, drives better, and offers better convenience, infotainment, and safety technologies.
Initially, the new 2022 MDX comes only with a 3.5-liter V6 engine, front-wheel or all-wheel drive, and a choice of Technology, A-Spec, and Advance option packages that add equipment. By the end of summer, the performance-tuned MDX Type S arrives, and rumors about a plug-in hybrid version persist.

Here are 10 things you might not know about the new MDX, but you should.
