After making its debut as a prototype earlier this year, the production version of the all-new 2014 Acura MDX will be unveiled at the 2013 New York International Auto Show. The seven-passenger MDX will offer enhanced ride comfort, a more versatile cabin and increased fuel efficiency, while also improving dynamic performance, according to the automaker.

The 2014 MDX is equipped with a direct-injected 3.5-liter i-VTEC V-6 engine with Variable Cylinder Management, and will be offered in both SH-AWD and 2-wheel-drive drivetrain variants, the latter configuration being a first for the model. The 2014 MDX features a longer wheelbase that raises ride quality, increases second-row legroom and improves third-row seat access.
