One does not simply mention Acura without mentioning the MDX brand that comes from this company. It is pretty certain that Acura has implemented a very string strategy by highlighting this particular franchise. It is because this brand is extremely popular in its luxury SUV category. This is one of the reasons as to why a new 2016 Acura MDX is coming out very soon. Having said that, this new model is certainly going to add some very interesting specs to this brand. The car manufacturer is very hopeful that this 2016 model will provide better configurations in terms of design and power train elements. The exterior look will most probably be refreshed with better performance items as well as improved interior cabin structure. So let’s have a look at those probable features that might be included in this new 2016 Acura MDX model.
2016 Acura MDX: Engine Features
With most Acura vehicles, the power train as well as the drive train characteristics is always a priority. This 2016 Acura MDX is no exception to that rule as well. Till now, there have been reports which indicate that only 1 engine option will be made available during initial release of this 2016 model. However, developers are confident that a couple more of engine choices will certainly come in to play during later years of release.
Rumors suggest that this 2016 model will feature a 3.5 liter V6 cylinder SOHC i-VTEC engine configuration. This particular engine is very likely to produce around 290 hp of max power, along with another max torque spec of 267 lbs. feet. In order to improve overall power train efficiency, this unit will be coupled with a 6 speed automatic gear box, along with provisions for either front wheel (FWD) or all-wheel (AWD) configuration.
2016 Acura MDX: Features and Design
It has not been very long since this franchise came in to play for Acura. The first MDX model was released in 2014, with a very promising start and lots of scope for the future. This is probably the reason as to why this 2016 model has introduced such an innovative platform design. It is pretty obvious that 2016 Acura MDX will certainly start on a new platform. More details will be available soon – but it has been reported that this new platform is exclusively constructed out of lightweight aluminum and HSS.
This will certainly improve the aerodynamic ability of this car, with better fuel economy spec as well. In addition to that, overall design features will certainly receive a big boost in terms of appearance and facilities. Having said that, this car will also improvise its interior configuration, with special attention to its luxury specs. High end material will cover most parts of its interior cabin – with leather upholstery and expanded dash board configuration.
2016 Acura MDX: Release Date and Price
Since this Acura model is essentially a 2016 model, so the release dates as well as its pricing features have not been mentioned as of yet. However, there have been some rumors that this 2016 Acura MDX might go for a slightly higher price than its predecessor.
