Acura MDX Towing Capacity

December 4th, 2020

What is The Towing Capacity of an Acura MDX?

The MDX can tow up to 5,000 pounds

Not all SUV’s are created equal. With the Acura MDX, you have the best of both worlds – luxury and power. Whether you are towing jet skis, a boat, a trailer back to college or dirt bikes during the weekend, you can count on your Acura MDX to get the job done.    

An MDX with standard front-wheel-drive has a towing capacity of 3,500 pounds. However, if your Acura has the Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD) option with the A-Spec® Package trim or other available packages, your MDX can tow up to 5,000 pounds.


Acura MDX Towing Performance

The MDX’s impressive towing capacity comes from its powerful standard 3.5L V6 engine with direct injection, 9 speed transmission and sequential SportShift paddle shifters. This combination generates 290 horse power and 267 lb.-ft. of torque. Choose among Comfort, Normal or Sport driving modes to suit your tastes.

Acura MDX Technology

In addition to the performance capabilities of the MDX, it also features advanced technology such as the Vehicle Stability Assist ™ (VSA) with motion adaptive steering and traction control which provides added stability when towing heavier loads. VSA constantly evaluates the following factors during towing:

  • Steering angle
  • Individual wheel speed
  • Vehicle yaw rate
  • Throttle position
  • Lateral G-force
  • Vehicle MPH
