The starting price gets you a base MDX with front-wheel drive. Adding Acura’s Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive costs an additional $2,000. The most expensive model lists for $57,675, once again including an $895 destination charge.
All 2015 MDX models feature the same engine, a 3.5-liter V-6 with direct fuel injection and cylinder deactivation. Peak output comes in at 290 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque, which is channeled to the wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters.
The front-wheel-drive MDX achieves an estimated 20/28 mpg city/highway and 23 mpg combined fuel economy, while the all-wheel-drive model comes in at 18/27 mpg city/highway and 21 mpg combined.
