The 2017 Acura MDX will make its debut at the 2016 New York Auto Show with a dramatically new look.

Redesigned and re-engineered, the three-row luxury SUV will present its latest iteration with “substantial design enhancements, added luxury comfort and convenience features, and advanced new powertrain technology,” the Japanese automaker said. Expect it to be heavily influenced by the brand’s focus on “Precision Crafted Performance,” which is evident by the teaser image showing the MDX sporting aggressive new body lines.
