What is the 2020 Acura MDX Towing Capacity?

October 25th, 2019 by

Silver Acura MDX

The 2020 Acura MDX towing capacity tops out at 5,000 pounds. In practical terms, this means you’ll have no trouble towing a small trailer or boat on the roads of Maple Shade or Medford! Before you head out, find out how to reach your maximum capacities and explore the MDX towing features with Acura Turnersville.

How Much Can an Acura MDX Tow?

How much can an Acura MDX tow? Simply put, it depends on the configuration you choose for your daily drives and adventures. Here’s what you should keep in mind:

  • Front-wheel drive is standard, and even if you decide not to upgrade, your MDX will be able to tow up to 3,500 pounds.
  • Upgrade with Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive™ to reach the 5,000-pound maximum Acura MDX towing capacity.

Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive™ is available on all Acura MDX configurations, and it comes standard on A-Spec® models. Although Sport Hybrid models offer even more power and torque, these builds aren’t recommended for towing. So, think carefully before you decide upon the upgrade!

Acura MDX Performance and Towing Features

Every 2020 Acura MDX comes equipped with a powerful 3.5-liter V6 engine with i-VTEC® and VCM®. With 290 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque, you’ll have no trouble getting up to speed on the highways near Sewell or Glassboro, even if you’re pulling a heavy trailer!

With either the FWD or the SH-AWD configuration, you’ll receive a 9-speed automatic transmission with Sequential SportShift Paddle Shifters. You’ll also enjoy:

  • A standard Multi-View Rear Camera with Dynamic Guidelines or an available Surround-View Camera System
  • An available Blind Spot Information (BSI) System and Rear Cross Traffic Monitor
  • Standard AcuraWatch™ safety tech, including the Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™)
  • Standard Vehicle Stability Assist® (VSA®) with Traction Control and Motion Adaptive Steering
