Acura to Release a Powerful Type-S Variant of the MDX SUV

A leaked video about dealerships shows that Acura will have new high-performance models in the near future. The relationship between automakers and car dealerships can certainly be hateful.

As an example, a leaked video posted on AcuraZine is intended only for dealership purposes. The footage has since been banned, but it has revealed some interesting information about Acura’s future cars, including several notable additions to the line-up.

The most interesting part of the leaked information is the new Acura MDX SUV with the Type-S modification. This is the first official confirmation of the future car in since its appearance in camouflage wrap during tests a year ago. We could clearly study its aggressive four-pipe exhaust system and huge wheels shod in sport tires. The previous 400-hp MDX Sport Hybrid already demonstrated its capabilities at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. This indicates that the new generation SUV is clearly not deprived of power. It is evidenced by the Type-S abbreviation in its name, given that the TLX Type-S Sedan, which appeared a few days earlier, significantly surpassed its predecessor in performance.

Unfortunately, a dealership's presentation does not contain additional information about the new MDX. However, according to last year’s leaked images, we can surely tell how the future MDX might look like. Rumor has it that it will be equipped with a twin-turbocharged V6. Whether it will be a version of the current 3.5-liter engine or an enlarged version of the 3.0-liter engine installed in the TLX sedan is not yet known.

What is more, the manufacturer's presentation has another interesting point — a brand new sedan with the same Type-S configuration. Most likely, this vehicle will replace the ILX from the current line-up. According to the images, this will happen in 2022. Acura’s fan-sites are now teeming with rumors about the revival of the legendary Integra, but, according to some auto experts, this does not exactly correspond to the brand’s current strategy.
