In 2017, the Acura MDX received a big refresh that gave it a completely new look, so it shouldn’t come as a shock that the 2018 MDX will not have many new things going for it. There will, however, be a few small tweaks.
The most noticeable of the changes on the 2018 Acura MDX will be the revised dual-screen infotainment system. This system will boast more intuitive menus and command structures for easier use, a 7-inch capacitive touchscreen in place of the old resistive screen, a 30 percent quicker response time, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility
The only other updates of note in 2018 are two new exterior color options: Basque Red on base and Technology trims, and San Marino Red on Advance trims.
Otherwise, everything else remains the same, including its 3.5-liter V-6 engine with 290 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque.
Prices will start from $44,200, which is only a $150 increase over the 2017 model, and it will top out at $58,650 for the all-wheel-drive model with the Advance and Entertainment packages.
The 2018 Acura MDX is available at dealers nationwide now.
