2020 Acura MDX

Who says you can’t have a vehicle that’s both stylish and powerful? Our Canton customers deserve both, and that’s what they get with the 2020 Acura MDX. You’re probably aware of this luxury SUV’s sleek appearance, but did you know that the Acura MDX towing capacity rivals some mid-size pickups? So, how much can an Acura MDX tow? Let’s find out.

How Much Can An Acura MDX Tow?

So, how much can an Acura MDX tow, exactly? That depends. The Acura MDX towing capacity for the standard front-wheel drive drivetrain is capable of towing up to 3,500 pounds. But if you opt for the available Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD), you get an impressive 5,000-pound maximum towing capacity. That’s enough to handle just about any grown-up toy you need to tow around the greater West Hartford area.

How to Get the Best Acura MDX Towing Experience

There’s more to safe trailering than making sure you’re properly equipped for the maximum Acura MDX towing capacity. That’s why the 2020 Acura MDX comes standard with several features that make driving along our Hartford roads safer in general. But they can also make towing safer. Here are a few of them:

  • Multi-View Rear Camera with Dynamic Guidelines
  • 4-wheel Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS)
  • Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) System
  • Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD)
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™)
  • Brake Assist
  • Vehicle Stability Assist® (VSA®) with Traction Control and Motion Adaptive Steering
  • Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) with Location and Pressure Indicators
  • Lane Departure Warning (LDW) System

Whether you tow or not, we want you to drive safely. So, we strongly recommend you consider adding these safety features that are optional on your Acura MDX:

  • Rear Cross Traffic Monitor
  • Surround-View Camera System
  • Front and Rear Parking Sensors
