- the 2022 acura mdx type s will arrive at dealerships starting next week with a starting price of $67,745.
- an advanced package is available for an additional $5,350 and adds several interior niceties.
- it's powered by the same 355-hp turbocharged 3.0-liter v-6 as the tlx type s sedan.
acura recently resurrected the type s badge and has already added it to three models in its lineup: the nsx supercar, the tlx sedan, and the mdx three-row suv. the tlx type s is on sale now, 300 nsx type s cars will arrive in the u.s. soon, and now the mdx type s will arrive at dealerships next week starting at $67,745.
that hefty price gets you the same turbocharged 3.0-liter v-6 as the tlx, but with a nearly $15,000 premium—and a third row of seats. that engine makes 355 horsepower and 354 pound-feet of torque, increases of 65 horsepower and 87 pound-feet over the standard mdx's 3.5-liter v-6. it's paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission and acura's sh-awd system, and type s models also come with adaptive dampers, air springs, and brembo brakes.
an advanced package is available on the mdx type s for an additional $5,350. it includes a head-up display, 25-speaker sound system, massaging, 16-way power front seats, wood trim, and other interior niceties.
its $67,745 starting price makes it cheaper than fully loaded versions of the genesis gv80, a previous car and driver 10best winner that offers a bit more power from its optional twin-turbo 3.5-liter v-6. while the tlx type s sedan's specs put it in contention with the audi s4 and bmw m340i, the mdx lines up more closely to non-performance versions of its german three-row suv rivals, including the $62,695, 335-hp bmw x5 xdrive40i and the $63,195, 335-hp audi q7 55. notably, the acura is even more expensive than a 375-hp porsche macan s.
