When the Acura MDX debuted as a 2001 model, it was the first luxury crossover vehicle with three rows of seating. The competition has thickened since then, but MDX has remained among the leaders as it has evolved through three generations (2001 – 2006; 2007 – 2013; 2014 to present). The 2018 Acura MDX comes with a 290 hp/267 lb-ft of torque 3.5-liter gasoline V6 engine, and also is available as a Sport Hybrid with a 3.0-liter gasoline V6 and three electric motors (one front/twin rear) with a combined system power of 321 hp and 289 lb-ft of torque. Gas-only models come with front-wheel drive or Acura’s Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD), while hybrid models are SH-AWD only. MDX prices start at $44,200. Add $2,000 for SH-AWD; $2,000 for Entertainment Package; $4,400 for Technology Package; $6,050 for Advance Package; and $3,500 for hybrid gasoline/electric system.
