Last month, the Acura brand announced the addition of the powerful and efficient 2017 Acura MDX Hybrid to the impressive and sophisticated new Acura SUV lineup. The new 2017 Acura MDX Hybrid offers decisive power and control, top fuel economy ratings, and sleek style. Here at your local Peabody Acura dealers, Acura of Peabody, we’re excited to learn more about this fun and exciting new 2017 Acura model!
The sophisticated and refined SUV will be offered in two sophisticated grades: the MDX with Technology Package and the MDX with Advance Package. Regardless of trim, it is engineered for drivers and families who wish to have an engaging driving experience as well as a vehicle that offers technological sophistication and prestige. The three-row SUV offers plenty of seating for up to seven passengers and plenty of cargo room.
It comes powered by a 3.0-liter SOHC i-VTEC V6 engine that pairs to three electric motors that all combine to create an output of 321 horsepower and 289 lb.-ft. of torque, which is actually more than 31 horsepower over a non-hybrid version. It comes paired to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. It also features a four-mode Integrated Dynamics System with Sport+ mode. The three electric motors provide instant torque for a more responsive and vivid driving experience. On top of all of that, the models feature all-wheel drive that helps create a capable and steady ride.
Like all new Acura models, the 2017 Acura MDX Hybrid comes equipped with a number of safety features via the AcuraWatch suite of safety and driver-assistance technologies, including lane departure warning, forward collision warning, lane keeping assist, and more!
