2018 Acura MDX MPG

When it comes to three-row luxury crossover SUVs, Ocean drivers might not expect much in terms of MPG. After all, for such a large car, fuel economy certainly must come after performance, right? Well the 2018 MDX busts that myth. With or without all-wheel drive, the 2018 Acura MDX MPG specs can you get farther in Red Bank on less gas per trip, and there’s even a hybrid model to choose!

Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive

The 2018 Acura MDX offers the all-wheel drive system. A 3.5L engine with this innovative all-wheel drive system produces 290 hp, and delivers 18 mpg city and 26 mpg highway* – competitive figures for a vehicle of this size when all wheels are in play on Matawan roads.

This setup also delivers a towing capacity of 5,000 pounds and a nine-speed automatic transmission with Sequential SportShift paddle shifters. Opt for Idle Stop, too, which can help boost the 2018 Acura MDX MPG ratings and reduce fuel consumption at Ocean stoplights.

Front-Wheel Drive

When you equip your 2018 Acura MDX with front-wheel drive, its 3.5L engine with Intelligent Variable Valve Timing® (i-VTEC)® and Lift Electronic Control churns out 290 hp, and also achieves a compelling 19 mpg city and 27 mpg highway*.

Even with these impressive figures, the new MDX can tow up to 3,500 pounds. This model also maintains the nine-speed automatic transmission and offers Idle Stop. You don’t find many three-row luxury crossover SUVs with all of these capabilities.

Sport Hybrid SH-AWD

When you select the 2018 Acura MDX Sport Hybrid with Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD), your vehicle will run on a 3.0L engine paired with a Sport Hybrid three-motor system to generate 321 hp, while also accomplishing competitive fuel economy at 26 mpg city and 27 mpg highway*.

All of this is made possible thanks to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission with paddle shifters. Hybrid or not, these are quite impressive MPG ratings for a three-row luxury crossover SUV that has all-wheel drive.
