12/11/2009 - TORRANCE, Calif. -

Already a leader in its class, the significantly enhanced 2010 MDX gets bold new styling, an all-new six-speed transmission, a revised chassis, additional content along with enhanced safety and convenience features. The 2010 MDX luxury SUV goes on-sale at Acura dealerships on December 11 with a manufacturers suggested retail price* (MSRP) starting at $42,230, plus a destination and handling (D&H) charge of $810, Acura announced today.

"The MDX has long been considered a benchmark in its class," said Jeff Conrad, vice president of Acura sales. "The 2010 MDX raises the bar yet again with its fresh looks, an all-new 6-speed transmission and lots of new customer-relevant technology."

Visually, the 7-passenger 2010 MDX receives more aggressive styling in the form of new front and rear bodywork, a bold new front grille, numerous trim enhancements, revised taillights and polished stainless-steel exhaust finishers. New 18-inch diameter 5-spoke aluminum wheels are standard with 19-inch diameter 7-spoke aluminum wheels available as part of the Advance Package.

Powering every MDX is a more refined engine that teams with an all-new 6-speed automatic transmission for better performance and improved fuel efficiency. The new 3.7-liter VTEC® V-6 generates 300 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque while achieving an EPA estimated city/highway fuel mileage of 16/21 mpg** (an improvement of 1 mpg city and 1 mpg highway over the 2009 MDX). Standard on every MDX is Acura's exclusive Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®) system that provides outstanding handling and excellent all-season capability.

Inside, the 2010 MDX receives a host of new features and technologies that make it even more luxurious. Topping the list is the expanded use of Milano Premium Leather, a new sport steering wheel with racing-inspired paddle shifters, new gauges, easier to understand button placement for center stack functions, available ventilated front seats and upgraded interior trim.

The 2010 MDX will be available in five trim packages including: the well-equipped MDX; MDX with Technology Package; MDX with Technology and Entertainment Packages; MDX with Advance Package; and MDX with Advance and Entertainment Packages.

Despite only a 3-percent increase in price, the 2010 base MDX receives a plethora of new standard content including a power rear tailgate, steering wheel mounted paddle shifters, an auto-dimming rearview mirror with integrated rear view camera screen, LED backlit instrumentation, a new hill start assist feature and premium loop-style floormats. Also included is the MDX's previous standard equipment including items such as: a leather trimmed interior, power moonroof, a tri-zone climate control system and Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink® wireless telephone interface. Also standard with the 2010 MDX is an 8-speaker, 253-watt Acura Premium Sound System that features XM® Radio with a new Note function, an in-dash 6-disc CD changer and AUX jack connectivity for personal audio devices.

The MDX with Technology Package adds Milano Premium Leather seating surfaces, Acura Navigation System with Voice Recognition™, AcuraLink Real-Time Traffic™ with Traffic Rerouting™, AcuraLink Real-Time Weather™ with radar image maps, a new full VGA color display screen and an innovative multi-view rear camera. Additionally, the Technology Package includes an Acura/ELS Surround® 410-watt Premium Audio System with 10 speakers, hard disk drive (HDD) media storage, in-dash CD, DVD-Audio, MP3, WMA and DTS® player, AM/FM tuner, XM® Radio with Note function music reminder, Dolby® Pro Logic® II, Song By Voice™ (SBV), USB port and AUX jack connectivity.

In addition to the features found in the Technology Package, the new Advance Package adds several premium technologies including the Collision Mitigating Braking System™ (CMBS™), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), an all-new blind spot information system (BSI) and the Active Damper System. The Advance Package makes use of special 19x8-inch 7-spoke aluminum-alloy wheels with Michelin Latitude all-season tires and auto-leveling HID front headlights. Also part of the Advanced Package are ventilated front seats, a sport steering wheel with unique design racing-inspired paddle shifters and textured metallic interior accents.

An Entertainment Package (available with Technology and Advanced Packages) includes a new Rear Entertainment System (RES) complete with a DVD player, power folding 9-inch full VGA color screen (with 400-percent improved resolution), dual wireless headphones and a wireless illuminated remote control. Also included are heated second row outboard seats and a 115-volt plug located in the center console.

Like all 2010 Acura models, the MDX is covered by a comprehensive 4-year/50,000 mile bumper-to-bumper limited warranty and a 6-year/70,000 powertrain limited warranty. Additional ownership benefits include Acura Total Luxury Care® (TLC®), which provides free 24-hour roadside assistance, concierge service and trip routing.
