How Much Can an Acura MDX Tow?

So, how much can an Acura MDX tow? When you opt for a new Acura MDX with standard front-wheel drive it will have a towing capacity of 3,500 pounds, but if you go for a different drivetrain with the Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD) option found in the A-Spec® Package trim and other packages, your maximum towing capacity increases to 5,000 pounds.

Acura MDX Performance Specs

The strong MDX towing performance is due in large part to its standard 3.5L V6 with direct injection engine and a nine-speed automatic transmission with sequential sportshift paddle shifters that generate 290 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque. You’ll even have access to a fully integrated dynamics system where you can choose Comfort, Normal, and Sport modes that match your driving needs the best.

Acura MDX Technology Features

The MDX’s performance features are perfectly paired with technology features like the Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA) with traction control and motion adaptive steering for even more stability when towing large quantities. It works by monitoring the following components when towing:

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