The 2022 Acura MDX is completely redesigned, continuing to offer three rows of seating in a midsize luxury SUV but with a renewed emphasis on safety, technology, and performance.
Now 20 years old, the Acura MDX is the best-selling 3-row luxury SUV in America. Now, as the fourth-generation MDX nears its release date of February 2, 2021, Acura has revealed the production version of the new 2022 MDX. As we expected, it looks exactly like the thinly disguised "prototype" shown in October. And while the prototype's matte-finish Liquid Carbon paint didn't make the production color palette, a metallic version of that color is one of the premium paint options.
Acura will build the new MDX in Ohio, with an Ohio-sourced engine and a Georgia-made transmission. Pricing should continue to be a major MDX strength, with the base, front-wheel-drive 2022 Acura MDX starting at $47,925 (all-wheel drive adds $2,000). Available with either drivetrain, the Technology Package costs $4,700. The AWD-only MDX A-Spec model comes in at $58,125, while the 2021 MDX Advance is priced at $61,675.
