The 2023 Acura MDX

The flagship of the Acura lineup, the fourth-generation MDX picks up new standard premium services for 2023, including three years of AcuraLink™ and the new Acura Maintenance Package1 to augment its position as the most premium, performance-focused and technologically sophisticated SUV in Acura history.

For the 2023 model year, the 7-passenger MDX and MDX Type S come standard with three years of AcuraLink™ services, including Security and Remote packages, at no extra cost. More information about AcuraLink™ is available here.

Adding peace of mind and lower cost of ownership for MDX and MDX Type S customers is the new Acura Maintenance Package – a complimentary maintenance plan for the first two years or 24,000 miles2 (whichever comes first) that covers select factory-scheduled maintenance, as indicated by MDX’s Maintenance Minder system and performed at a participating Acura dealership. The plan includes standard oil and filter changes, tire rotation and multi-point inspections. It also is fully transferrable to subsequent owners while active.

The 2023 Acura MDX begins arriving at dealers today with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $49,050 (excluding destination and handling). The turbocharged 2023 MDX Type S starts with an MSRP of $67,350.
