New Acura MDX for Sale

The Acura MDX is a sophisticated SUV that is quite popular among drivers in the Highlands Ranch area. One of its many highlights is the Acura MDX towing capacity. Just how much can this SUV haul on the Littleton streets? Mile High Acura has all of the details on the Acura MDX towing capacity.

Acura MDX Towing Capacity and Performance Specs

2019 Acura MDX FWD models can tow up to 3,500 pounds. SH-AWD elevates towing capacity to a maximum of 5,000 pounds. This makes it a stronger tower than competitors like the Audi Q7. The MDX is powered by a 3.5L DI V6 engine with Idle Stop, which is capable of 290 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque. Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD) reduces weight and friction, and works in tandem with a 9-speed automatic transmission to boost fuel-efficiency ratings.

MPG Ratings

Although the Acura MDX towing capacity is quite impressive, that does not mean that this vehicle sacrifices efficiency for power. With FWD, the MDX earns 20 mpg city/27 mpg highway*. MDX SUVs with SH-AWD earn up to 19 mpg city/26 mpg highway*.

Standard & Optional Feature Highlights

You may be wondering, “Do I need to use premium gas to reach the max MDX towing capacity?” No, you don’t! Premium gas is recommended, but not required. In addition to V6 power and optional SH-AWD, the Acura MDX offers the following standard and available features for Aurora and Highlands Ranch drivers to enjoy:

  • Variable Cylinder Management
  • Power moonroof
  • Jewel Eye® LED Headlights
  • Sport seats with premium leather-trimmed interior
  • Heated front seats
  • Up to 90.9 cubic feet of cargo space
  • Optional 12-speaker sound system
  • Optional Acura Navigation System with 3D view
  • Optional Acura Real-Time Traffic with Street and Freeway Conditions

Performance and towing capacity aren’t the only strong suits of the Acura MDX; it also offers plenty of driver assistive safety features through each of the packages to help keep you protected as you travel through Littleton and Parker.
