While it was certainly outshone by the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, and even the Ford F-150 Atlas Concept, the 2014 Acura MDX Prototype
garnered a notable share of the attention at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show
That's remarkable considering the big-name unveilings it was up against, and it perhaps speaks well to Acura's future success with its redesigned full-size crossover.
Sporting what Acura calls "Aero Sculpture" design language, the MDX's proportions remain fairly close to the last-generation model, though in every details, and in many of the more important statistics, it's definitely a new vehicle.
Wheelbase extends 1.5 inches, for example, boosting second- and third-row leg-room and ease of access. An all-new 3.5-liter i-VTEC V-6 engine with Variable Cylinder Management (VCM) cylinder deactivation technology lies under the hood, though Acura hasn't yet graced us with power output figures or gas mileage estimates.
There's a solid dose of high tech inside the 2014 MDX prototype, too, with lane departure warning, a multi-angle rearview camera, forward collision warning, and more available.
