2017 Acura MDX Exterior and Interior
On the outside, there are a number of changes that have been made to the 2017 Acura MDX. There are reports that this vehicle will ride on a new platform and that the exteriors will be modified. However, the carmaker does not plan to make any changes to the proportions of the vehicle but will only restyle the exteriors. The front of the vehicle gets a large number of changes. Also, the lines of the cars have been changed to make the front fascia very attractive, and the introduction of spiked headlights and a bold front bumper help to make this a very attractive vehicle. The grill has also been changed. It is both larger as well as redesigned.
On the inside, a number of changes have been made to the Acura MDX. The interiors are even more attractive than the exteriors and a few big updates have ensured that buyers will be suitably impressed by what they see within the cabin. A new infotainment system is introduced and the dashboard will also be different and better than the one in the current model. This SUV has interiors that have been designed to attract high society buyers and thus has a number of luxury features.
2017 Acura MDX Engine and Performance
The same engine that powers up the current model will probably power the new 2017 Acura MDX. However, this engine will prove to be more fuel-efficient than the earlier engine and it is also capable of generating approximately 290 horsepower and 267 pound feet of twisting force. This engine is none other than the Earth Dreams V6 3.5-liter engine that is coupled with a 6-speed automatic transmission. An all-wheel drive variant is also available and it is also a very fuel-efficient option as it delivers 18 mpg in the city, 21 mpg on the highway and 17 mpg in combined driving conditions. The front-wheel drive variant on the other hand delivers 20 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway as well as 23 mpg in combined driving conditions. Though the carmaker will probably not dispense with the Earth Dreams engine there is a chance that it will ensure improved fuel economy.
