Acura MDX Type S: A New, Faster Flagship SUV from AcuraAvailable Through Duval Acura in Jacksonville

The 2022 Acura MDX represents an impressive leap forward for a nameplate that had already earned high critical and consumer praise in its earlier generation. Acura was so enthusiastic about its plans for the luxury midsize SUV that it forwent the 2021 model year altogether, jumping straight into a fully redesigned fourth generation.

From its modernized accommodations and advanced amenities to its bold style and engaging performance, the 2022 MDX successfully improved on every aspect of the driving experience. And now, Acura has elevated Precision Crafted Performance yet again with the all-new MDX Type S, the most powerful, athletic, and well-equipped Acura SUV ever.

Type S Performance

Under the hood, The MDX upgrades its powerplant to a Type S-exclusive 24-valve, DOHC, 3.0-liter V6 aspirated by a twin-scroll turbocharger to produce 355 horsepower and 354 pound-feet of torque. Power runs to the torque-vectoring Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ system through a 10-speed automatic transmission re-engineered to accommodate the engine's extra torque.

The MDX Type S exhibits remarkable athleticism for its size, building on the MDX's model-exclusive platform with a performance-tuned chassis, double-wishbone front suspension, an Adaptive Damper System, and first-time air suspension. The Integrated Dynamics System has seven selectable drive modes, including the Type S-exclusive Sport+ mode and a new Lift mode to increase ground clearance by two inches on demand. The Type S 21-inch wheels are wrapped in performance rubber, and strong Brembo front brakes help reign in the MDX's upgraded power.
