Acura MDX AWD Capabilities and Specs

As mentioned before, the lineup offers a standard FWD system on its first two base trim packages while the rest of the configurations come with the standard Super Handling All-Wheel Drive which takes your daily Aurora commute to the next level with improved traction and handling on rougher surfaces. Plus, it works seamlessly with your 3.5L V6 engine which is paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission to deliver specs of up to 290 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque. Making the upgrade to the SH-AWD system also bumps your towing capacity up from 3,500 pounds with FWD to a maximum of 5,000 pounds. See more of how the Acura SH-AWD system enhances your Denver travels below:

  • Constantly analyzes wheel speed, lateral G-force, and other factors to shift power between the front and rear wheels. It also can shift different levels of power to the rear wheels individually.
  • Acura SH-AWD can send up to 90% of your power to the front wheels.
  • When you have to really accelerate, Acura SH-AWD can send up to 45% of power to your rear wheels.
  • On an Acura sedan, the Acura SH-AWD system enables 70% of effective torque that can be directed to the rear wheels for a seamless ride when handling rough curves and turns.
