Third-Row Luxury SUV

2018 MDX

Colorado families deserve a luxury SUV that can keep up with their busy lifestyles, and we have just the vehicle in mind: the 2018 Acura MDX. Its 290-hp, 3.5-liter V6 engine is rugged enough for a mountain trek, while its bold style is refined enough for a night on the town. No matter the situation, versatility is always front and center with a spacious interior that caters to both kids and cargo.



Up to the challenge

The Centennial State can be an unforgiving place come winter time, especially if you’re having to navigate through the Rocky Mountains. Luckily, the 2018 MDX is up to the challenge. Snow-covered highways are neutralized thanks to a 4-wheel independent MacPherson strut front and multi-link rear suspension. The risk of a rollover is greatly reduced with both front and rear stabilizer bars, giving you the confidence needed to tackle those winding, mountain roads. For superior control, Colorado drivers can look to the available Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system which analyzes wheel speed, steering angle, lateral G-force, and yaw rate in real time to distribute power from the front wheels to the rear, or independently between just the rear wheels (as needed).

    Powerful and Efficient

    MDX makes you feel closer to the road. The i-VTEC V6 produces 290-hp and 267 lb-ft of torque. When immediate acceleration is required, the engine responds with smooth aggression. But at highway cruising speed, the Variable Cylinder Management system allows the engine to run only three cylinders, enhancing fuel efficiency to the tune of an EPA-estimated 19 mpg in the city and 27 on the highway (FWD models).**

    Sport Hybrid System

    Forged from innovations found in the iconic NSX supercar including: the upcoming Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive System (winter release), Dual Clutch Transmission, and Active Damper System. The MDX Sport Hybrid uses a 257-hp, 3.0-liter V6. Joining the engine in powering the front wheels is a 47 horsepower electric motor located in the transmission housing. There are two additional 36 horsepower motors mounted side by side between the rear wheels.

    Integrated Dynamics System

    An electronic gear selector offers intuitive, one-touch gear engagement and increases access to the center stack and center console. Pushing “Drive” delivers smooth gear changes with an emphasis on fuel efficiency. Selecting Sport+ Integrated Dynamics System (IDS) mode brings on quicker downshifts and higher RPMs before upshifts.

  • 2018 Acura MDX Sequential SportShift Paddle Shifters

    Sequential SportShift Paddle Shifters

    Tapping a paddle shifter in Normal, Economy, or Sport IDS driving mode engages a manual gear change. Thus, quick gear changes are always available without switching in and out of manual mode. Automatic shifting returns when the MDX reaches a steady speed. Using a paddle shifter in Sport+ puts the transmission in full manual mode, greatly enhancing control for high-performance or hilly driving.

    Agile Handling Assist

    Precision handling is enhanced on board the MDX utilizing components of the Vehicle Stability Assist system, which uses active braking—usually on an inside wheel—to maintain stability during spirited cornering. Braking on individual wheels helps to avoid oversteer or understeer.


Athletic appearance

Inspired by Acura’s Precision Concept Design, the 2018 MDX employs strong, organic sculpting, a wide stance, and a low clearance to cultivate its athletic appearance. Rounding out the MDX’s unique look is the signature Diamond Pentagon Grille, Jewel Eye LED headlights, and a dual chrome exhaust. Other exterior elements that contribute more to function than form include an acoustic windshield and front side glass to reduce noise inside the cabin; keyless access for convenient vehicle entry; a remote-linked power liftgate for easier cargo loading/unloading; and a capless fuel filler door that waves goodbye to the dirty gas cap.

From the ground up

How did the MDX become the best-selling three-row luxury SUV of all time?^ By becoming one of the safest vehicles in its class. Safety from the ground up starts with an Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure that utilizes a network of connected structural elements and extra braces to limit the impact felt by passengers during a frontal collision, evenly distributing crash energy throughout the front end. Nearly unheard of within the segment, every 2018 MDX trim comes standard equipped with AcuraWatch, a comprehensive suite of driver assistive technologies and safety features. Perhaps that’s why the MDX has earned another 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
