The next generation Acura MDX was first caught testing back in May 2012, but since then, nothing much has been heard about it or its new features. That is, until today, when our spy photographers were able to grab a few images of the future generation SUV as it rounded out a bit more testing. As you can see, the car is still heavily camouflaged, hiding just about everything, but we still expect to see big changes in the design of the future MDX, including some design elements from the RLX Concept.
The future Acura MDX will also be borrowing the engine line-up from the RLX, meaning customers will choose between two engines. The standard model will be powered by a V6 engine with about 300 HP, while a new hybrid model will feature the Acura Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive system. In the RLX, this version delivers a total of 370 HP.
The Acura MDX will be out on the market in late 2013 as a 2014 model.
