Leveraging the base-model’s impressive 290 horsepower, 267 lb-ft of torque V6 for fearless off-road travel and flawless all-weather traction, the 2017 Acura MDX with AWD adds an adventurous edge while optimizing safety.
Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) is the latest evolution in high-performance handling. It continuously and seamlessly directs engine power between all wheels depending on second-by-second weight distribution, lateral G-force, steering angle, wheel speed, and individual traction, resulting in cornering and control unmatched by rival systems. During hard acceleration, up to 45% of engine power goes to the rear wheels for optimal rear-wheel traction; when you corner, up to 70% of effective torque can go to the outside rear wheel. When cruising between Norman or Yukon into Oklahoma City, 90% of the power is sent to the front wheels for improved efficiency. In the words of Edmunds.com SH-AWD “whips this big SUV around corners and magically allows it to carve tighter lines.”
