The 2014 Acura MDX Prototype made its world debut Jan. 15 at the 2013 North American International Auto Show. The third generation of the seven-passenger Acura MDX performance luxury SUV will launch by mid-2013 in both all-wheel-drive and front-wheel-drive layouts, and the vehicle will feature an array of advanced safety technologies.

These safety technologies will include the next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure and the available Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW) systems, as well as visibility technologies such as the Multi-Angle Rearview Camera and the available Blind Spot Information (BSI), Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS), and Active Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow. 

The 2014 MDX will feature a longer wheelbase designed to enhance ride quality, increase second-row legroom, and improve third-row seat access, Acura said.

The 2014 MDX will also feature a more rigid and lightweight chassis, including new front and rear suspension designs. An all-new, direct-injected 3.5-liter i-VTEC SOHC V-6 engine with Variable Cylinder Management (VCM) will deliver improved torque and fuel efficiency.

The new MDX will also feature a range of advanced information technologies, including the next-generation AcuraLink cloud-based connected car system.
