Acura MDX Horsepower and Torque
Sitting at the heart of each non-hybrid Acura MDX model is a 3.5L 24-Valve, SOHC i-VTEC® V6 that uses Direct Gas Injection, Variable Cylinder Management™ (VCM®), and the Acura i-VTEC® system to put you in command of up to:
- 290 hp
- 267 lb-ft of torque
Front Wheel Drive comes as standard, with Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD) available to blend all-weather performance with stronger dry-road handling. As mentioned by Edmunds.com: “the torque-vectoring Super Handling All-Wheel Drive system allows this big SUV to carve corners like a smaller crossover.”
