Back of 2020 Acura MDX

You’ve got an impressive 5,000 pounds of maximum towing capacity when you step into the 2020 Acura MDX. The Acura MDX towing capacity is more than enough to get that boat to the lake when you and your family want to escape from Union County. Springfield Acura is about to break down the Acura MDX towing situation and point you toward our other roster of excellent new vehicles.

How Much Can an Acura MDX Tow?

The answer to “how much can an Acura MDX tow?” is based on what you pick when you’re building your Acura MDX. With the standard front-wheel drive, the Acura MDX towing capacity is a generous 3,500 pounds. If you go for Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD), on the other hand, you get an impressive 5,000 pounds of towing. You can find SH-AWD standard on the A-Spec trim package and available on the other packages.

Acura MDX Performance

The Acura MDX towing capacity is due in part to the standard 3.5L V6 engine. It has direct injection and a nine-speed automatic transmission with sequential sportshift paddle shifters. In sum, you’re getting 290 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque. Thanks to the integrated dynamics system of the MDX, you can select Comfort, Normal, and Sport modes to enhance your daily drive in Bridgewater.

Acura MDX Technology

The Acura MDX technology is perfect for your Staten Island drive because it comes with Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA) plus traction control and motion adaptive steering. This standard system gives you control over these things:

  • Throttle position
  • Lateral G-force
  • Vehicle speed
  • Steering angle
  • Individual wheel speeds
  • Vehicle yaw rate

In addition, the AcuraWatch™ safety suite gives you added amenities like Hill Start Assist and ABS with Electronic Brake Distribution and Brake Assist.
