It's very possible that because there will be less drivetrain losses in the front wheel drive version, there might actually be more power at the wheels.

Plus the loss of weight, so it actually evens out so well it shaves 8 seconds off the NB and 0.5 seconds on the 0-60 time. Real World Testing will prove it to us though.

What's the 0-60 time on the 2013?

According to this older (Jan 2011) comparison from C&D a 0.5 sec improvement would put the 2014 MDX on par w/ the (2011) X5 xDrive35i. It'd also be well ahead of the base 2013 Cayenne (7.4) but still a half second behind the Cayenne S (5.6)

If true, it'll be ridiculous bargain for that kind of straight line performance while returning class leading MPG.
