Whereas most automakers offer standalone trims, Acura sells the MDX with various packages that build on top of each other. There are four models in the Acura MDX range: standard, Technology Package, A-Spec Package, and Advance Package. All models are powered by the same 3.5-liter naturally-aspirated V6 engine delivering 290 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque. A ten-speed automatic is standard. The base MDX and Technology Package are FWD, while A-Spec and Advance models have AWD.
Standard features on the base MDX include 12-way power-adjustable heated front seats, a removable center seat in the second row, tri-zone climate control, keyless entry with push-button start, a panoramic moonroof, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a power-adjustable tilt-and-telescoping steering column, ambient LED lighting, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.
The next step up comes via the Technology Package. This model includes GPS-linked climate control, 20-inch wheels, rain-sensing wipers, front and rear parking sensors, low-speed braking control, navigation with a 3D view, real-time traffic, and a 12-speaker sound system.
The A-Spec Package includes everything you get in the Technology Package plus LED fog lights, a few model-specific exterior accents, heated and ventilated front seats, a leather-wrapped flat-bottom steering wheel, sports pedals, and a 16-speaker sound system.
Finally, the Advance Package comes as standard with everything included in the Technology Package and then adds heated second-row seats, a heated steering wheel, a surround-view camera system, a 10.5-inch head-up display, charging ports for the third row, and remote engine start with vehicle feedback.
