2019 Acura MDX

The 2019 Acura MDX towing capacity has a maximum of 5,000 pounds, which makes it perfect for hauling trailers or boats during the summertime as well as helping get everyday jobs done.

How Much Can an Acura MDX Tow?

When you equip the Acura MDX with standard front-wheel-drive, Bentonville drivers can leverage this SUV to tow 3,500 pounds, but those customers that choose Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD) can haul nearly 5,000 pounds. This comes standard on the A-Spec® Package trim and is also available on the other Acura MDX packages.

Acura MDX Performance Specs

The MDX would not be able to tow these incredible amounts with its standard 3.5L V6 engine which features direct injection that’s paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission. Its engine’s sequential sportshift paddle shifters delivers Springdale drivers with 290 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque. Customers that opt for the Technology or Advance Package can even choose a Sport Hybrid model with SH-AWD option that provides the 5,000-pound towing capacity.

MDX Technology

In addition to strong engine configurations that allow for stronger towing, the MDX also comes with new technology designed to make driving more efficient when towing. The MDX comes with Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA), which offers Rogers customers better traction control and motion adaptive steering, to help them have better stability when towing around town. This standard system monitors:

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

MDX Safety

Towing can be a very difficult task depending on how much you are carrying and the AcuraWatch™ safety suite, which also comes standard on the 2019 MDX, enables drivers safety towing around town with these unique features:

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™
  • Hill Start Assist
  • ABS with Electronic Brake Distribution and Brake Assist
  • Multi-view rear camera with dynamic guidelines
