The new performance version was introduced last year, probably to fill the gap until the completely new model arrives.How the new 2020 MDX will look like, it is still early to say. The new model will hit the market probably in about a year, eventually a year and a half. We expect to see the new model on some major auto show.

This redesign would bring improvements in various aspects. Of course, people always notice new styling first, but much more important things are under the skin.The 2020 Acura MDX should get a completely new architecture. At the moment, it is hard to predict how the new platform will look like, though it’s easy to presume that we are about to see some significant weight savings, thanks to the use of materials such as aluminum or HSS.The new architecture will surely bring improvements in other aspects. We expect that the new 2020 Acura MDX will continue in the same way, though with more legroom on in the second and third row, as well as in the cargo area.

The new cabin should feature a completely new layout, with more horizontal lines, premium materials, and largely digitalized dashboard. Of course, expect to see a bunch of new technologies, not only larger touchscreens and similar things, but also a bunch of advanced safety and driver-assist systems.
New Acura MDX A-Spec To Fill the Gap
Until we see a completely new model, you can enjoy the new A-Spec version, which definitely can point to some of the things that could find their place in the next-generation model.

2020 Acura MDX Powertrain
The current model is available in two variants. The base model comes with a familiar 3.5-liter engine, which proved itself for so many times. In this version, it delivers around 290 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque.It is a system that combines familiar V6 engine with three electric motors and advanced Super Handling– All-Wheel Drive system. A total amount of power goes up to 321 horsepower, which provides even better performances that the base V6 version.For the 2020 Acura MDX, we could expect a lot of improvements in this aspect. One of the possibilities is to see a new turbo inline-four engine in the offer, which would attract a wider range of buyers, thanks to its efficiency.
2020 Acura MDX release date and price
Far, we can only presume that the new model could come in about a year or two. When it comes to price, we expect no bigger changes, so the new model should go in a range between 45.000 and 60.000 dollars, roughly.
