Acura MDX Generations

Each Acura MDX generation, representing the timeframe between each MDX redesign, is listed below. Use this list to see which is the most reliable and safest MDX generation based on iSeeCars' data-driven ratings.

In the market for a slightly used Acura MDX, but wondering if it offers the latest design enhancements? iSeeCars' team of automotive experts and data scientists compiled the most accurate and comprehensive history of the Acura MDX's redesign schedule, showing which model year an all-new "vehicle generation" debuted. When a vehicle is redesigned it benefits from the latest design and engineering enhancements, which impacts performance, fuel efficiency, safety, and reliability. iSeeCars' data shows that, on average, newer generations of a model are more powerful, fuel efficient, and reliable than older generations, but not all models follow this pattern. Use the information below to track changes in the Acura MDX and its engine power, fuel efficiency, safety, and iSeeCars' Reliability Ratings across model years/generations. iSeeCars' objective and data-driven Reliability Rating is based on a rigorous analysis of over 312 million vehicles, to calculate each vehicle model's useful lifespan and its ability to last 200,000 miles or more.

The Acura MDX is a midsize suv last redesigned in 2022. The latest generation is powered by a 3.5L engine that makes 290 hp and delivers up to 25 mpg. A new Acura MDX has a starting MSRP of $50,150, and used prices for this generation of Acura MDX range from $36,546 to $68,998.

The previous Acura MDX generation is a midsize suv produced from 2014 to 2020. This generation is powered by a 3.5L engine that makes 290 hp and delivers up to 25 mpg. Used car pricing for this generation ranges from $10,850 to $37,340. This era of Acura MDX earns an iSeeCars Generations Rating of 9.2.

Our methodology

iSeeCars Generations Rating is calculated based on the latest research from our data science team.

The iSeeCars Generations Rating is an analysis of two factors: reliability and safety. It is calculated for each model generation based on the analysis of over 312 million cars using a proprietary mathematical model that estimated the probability that each vehicle would survive to various mileage thresholds. This survival model was used to calculate the average lifespan of each vehicle generation, which forms the basis of the reliability score. The safety score is based on NHTSA safety ratings.

Vehicles are scored in two categories:

Reliability

The reliability score represents an analysis of iSeeCars' proprietary research on the longest-lasting vehicles.

Safety

The safety score is calculated based on the last five years of crash test ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and incorporates the latest Top Safety Pick information from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
