The 2013 Acura MDX Engine is Still Going Strong

October 9th, 2013 by

Drivers might have issues coming up with what is truly essential in a luxury SUV, but in the case of the 2013 Acura MDX, engine strength is often something our drivers are fond of. Available now at Chicagoland Acura Dealers, the 2013 MDX is a great mix of affordability, style, luxury, and power.

Let’s take a look at how the powertrain of the MDX stacks up against a competitor like the 2013 Infiniti JX.

Power Isn’t Everything, But it Helps

We know that you’re looking for quite a few different things when it comes to your luxury crossover, and while power isn’t everything, it sure does sweeten the deal, doesn’t it? The 3.7L V6 under the hood of the MDX is good for 300 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque, while the 2013 Infiniti JX only offers 265 hp and 248 lb-ft of torque.

What does that mean? It means the MDX will leap off the line more quickly and hold the lead with less effort than the JX, making your daily commute—and just your typical driving—all the easier.

Now, we said that power isn’t everything, and we think that aesthetics are a pretty big factor in what makes a great luxury crossover. The MDX, for example, is streamlined to be both aerodynamic and have some of the traditional hard angles found in luxury vehicle design.

There is no accounting for taste, but to us, the JX looks a bit too old-fashioned, a bit too little like a luxury vehicle.

Don’t forget that the 2014 MDX is available now, too.
