"The MDX Type S takes performance to new levels with a 3.0-liter turbocharged V-6 producing an estimated 355-HP and 354 lb-ft. of torque"... now we're talking!

That powerplant with SH-AWD is a step above the competition.

2022 MDX
Next to Arrive: High Performance MDX Type S

Arriving at dealerships in late summer 2021, the Acura MDX Type S joins the lineup as the brand's first application of the Type S high performance nameplate to an SUV. MDX Type S will deliver an even stronger performance styling statement, with an open diamond mesh grille, quad exhaust outlets and gloss black trim replacing the standard chrome. Under the hood will be Acura's all-new 3.0-liter turbocharged DOHC V6 engine, producing an estimated 355 horsepower and 354 lb-ft of torque, coupled with Acura's SH-AWD®. Maximizing grip, the new MDX Type S will feature standard 21-inch wheels with 275-series tires, and additional braking power coming from larger brakes and 4-piston Brembo front calipers.

Inside, Type S drivers will find even higher levels of refinement, with available 9-mode massaging front seats accented with curvilinear stitching, and colors and trim unique to Type S. A new "Signature Edition" ELS STUDIO 3D® premium audio system will be the most advanced and powerful audio system ever offered in an Acura vehicle, with more than 1,000 watts of power, 22 discrete channels and 25 speakers. More details on the highest-performing ever SUV from Acura will be released closer to its on-sale date late in the summer of 2021.

I was excited for this but a price jump of ~10% on the Aspec before the Type S feels a bit much...

Once we factor in $3-5K (based on the specs above I won’t be surprised if it’s more) for the type s this is gonna be knocking at $70k

I wouldn't want a 4 banger powering a 5000lbs vehicle... even with a turbo.

lol wut? no not even close. more like MDX is going out to pasture moving upmarket when nobody was buying at lower price before. acura can't command the price they're putting this at.

it's going the way of RL with what they're doing.

going way of RL... priced too high (too close to lexus and the germans) when acura was all about being cheapest pesudo luxury
why buy a MDX for 60k+ when that's getting close to GLE, X5 territory or if want bang for buck, get a genesis GV or kia teluide for cheaper and more power (GV)

and residuals will be lower than the gemrans making leasing less competitive

I would too (not that i am in market or will likely consider a mdx or GV80 in near future) you'll get way more car and i don't think Acura has better brand prestige than Genesis, probably less. so why pay more and get less with MDX?

at least a GV80 will have more powerful engine and better equipped and nicer interior

Still $10K cheaper than equivalent German or Genesis.

Throw your assumption on car prices away. Thanks to Trump trade policies and COVID-19, everything will inflate like crazy. A $80K car is depreciating just as fast as your $80K cash in bank right now. 2019/20 MSRP will seem like a bargain soon.

All car prices are going up. Just look at the BMW and MB threads - granted we're at the new model year, consumers are being offered laughably low lease residuals, high rates, and dealers aren't willing to play ball!

Comparing apples to apples options, it is still priced well below Euro competitors. X5/GLE optioned similarly with top end MDX trim (ASpec or Platinum Elite?) will easily be approaching 90k vs Acura's mid 60s.

Genesis has only been in this game for a few years and they finally NAILED it.

I will take the GV80/90 over this.

I'll get them credit for taking a SMALL step.

I agree with all of you.

It looks very attractive, but they are killing us with the prices. The Platinum Elite at $67,400 + + + ($70K plus taxes) makes me wonder, what else can I buy for that money?

The the A Spec trim makes me think, what the hell? Priced at $63,400 vs the old MSRP of $56,990 for a 2020 model.

The sweet spot may be the "Tech" trim.

I just wish Acura will make it available with different colors of upholstery. I am sick of the lack of choices. All interiors are black leather nowadays in Canada, and in the USA they get 3 or 4 color choices.
