The 2014 Acura MDX has been spied at the Nürburgring.
While the model is heavily disguised, the crossover has an evolutionary design with distinctive headlights and a toned-down ‘shield' grille. The camouflage hides other details but we can see the model will have prominent wheel arches, a tailgate-mounted spoiler and wraparound taillights. It also appears larger than its predecessor, so expect a more accommodating cabin.
Engine options will likely be shared with the 2014 RLX, so expect the entry-level model to be powered by a 3.5-liter V6 with 310 hp (231 kW). There should also be an all-wheel drive variant with a 3.5-liter V6 engine and three electric motors for a combined output of 370 hp (276 kW).
The 2014 MDX is slated to go into production at the company's Lincoln, Alabama plant in early 2013.
