2018 Acura MDX Trim Levels

The 2018 Acura MDX is a three-row luxury SUV that is impressing Chicagoland drivers. It features a powerful yet refined performance on the road, with available upgrades to further enhance the experience behind the wheel. It also comes with a long list of equipment—from entertainment systems to driver-assist technology. Each package offers something a little different to suit just about any driver’s desires:

  • The Standard Package presents core features for comfort, convenience, and technology.
  • The Technology Package adds more connectivity and entertainment to the cabin.
  • The Advance Package is the MDX at its most luxurious and refined.


Under the hood of the Acura MDX is a powerful and commanding 3.5L direct-injection V6 engine. It produces up to 290 hp with a towing capacity of 3,500 pounds with front-wheel drive and 5,000 pounds with SH-AWD. For drivers who want even more power behind the wheel, choose the MDX Sport Hybrid, which includes the Technology Package. With that upgrade the MDX swaps out the standard engine for a 3.0L that produces up to 321 hp and is paired with a 7-speed dual clutch transmission with paddle shifters for extra thrills.
