What to Expect from the 2016 Acura MDX Specs

May 12th, 2015 by

2016 MDXReady and waiting for drivers at our Chicagoland Acura Dealer locations, the 2016 Acura MDX specs tell you a lot about this new luxury crossover. We have a quick rundown of the engine specs, dimensions, and features so that you can know whether or not the new MDX is the right vehicle for you.

Engine Specs

Under the hood of each 2016 Acura MDX is a 3.5L direct-injection V6 engine rated at 290 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque, and it’s available with both idle stop technology as well as an all-wheel drive system. No matter which model you drive, you’ll have one of the most fuel-efficient crossovers on the road, too:

  • 2016 MDX FWD models equipped with idle stop are rated at an EPA-estimated 27 highway and 20 city mpg for 23 mpg combined.*
  • Opting for the 2016 MDX SH-AWD with idle stop gives you the confidence of an all-wheel drive system while remaining incredibly efficient at an EPA-estimated 26 highway and 19 city mpg, for 22 mpg combined.*

The MDX SH-AWD can also tow as much as 5,000 pounds when properly equipped.

Cabin Specs and Features

One of the best parts about the 2016 Acura MDX specs is knowing that your third-row passengers have plenty of space; the total passenger space available to all three rows is 132.3 cubic feet, with room for full-grown adults in the third row. And if you don’t need all of that passenger space, you can fold down the rear seating to expand the cargo hold to as much as 90.9 cubic feet of cargo space.

As an Acura, the 2016 MDX has some of the best features in its class, including:

  • On-demand multi-use display
  • Bluetooth HandsFreeLink
  • HomeLink remote system
  • SMS texting capabilities
  • Siri Eyes Free compatibility
  • Automatic climate control
  • Rearview camera system
