Acura has announced that it’ll be heading to the 2013 Detroit Auto Show with a prototype of its next-generation MDX SUV model.
The new SUV from the Japanese automaker will share much of its DNA with the all-new RLX model and will come standard with a V6 engine sourced from the flagship sedan. What isn’t yet clear is if it will also be available with the company’s new Sport Hybrid Super Handling AWD system, utilizing a hybrid gasoline V6 engine at the front axle and twin electric motors at the rear wheels, it produces 370 hp in the upcoming RLX.
According to Acura, the next-gen MDX will utilize the automaker’s “Aero Sculpture” design language that affects both form and function.
“The 2014 MDX Prototype will feature alluring proportions with smooth, arching body lines matched to an efficient architecture,” Acura said in a press release. The debut of the SUV will also take place online and chances are what we’ll see early next year will be a very good sign of the production model heading to dealerships later on.
