The 2022 Acura MDX picks up some new features
Release Date for the 2022 Acura MDX
Back in October, Acura pulled the curtain back on a prototype version of its flagship three-row crossover SUV. Early in December 2020 our manufacturing partner finally announced the release date for the 2022 Acura MDX as well as its official performance specifications. First things first, if you’re among the many people who are wondering when the 2022 Acura MDX and its four trim grades (MDX, MDX w/ Technology, MDX w/ A-Spec® and MDX w/ Advance) will arrive at the Acura of Modesto showroom, we can tell you that it will go on sale during the summer of 2021. The 2022 MDX will be the beginning of the platform’s fourth generation and it will ride on an all-new ultra-rigid platform that also applies a double-wishbone front suspension. This is the first time an MDX uses this setup.
