How Much Can an Acura MDX Tow?

So, how much can an Acura MDX tow with its standard drivetrain? 5,000 pounds is the max Acura MDX towing capacity, but your towing capabilities depend upon what package West Hartford drivers get with their MDX. You’ll need to upgrade from the standard FWD to the available Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive™ to get to 5,000 pounds. This comes with the Advance and the A-Spec® packages. Here are the towing specs for each package:

Acura MDX Towing Capacity by Package
