How Much Can the 2019 Acura MDX Tow?

The Acura MDX with front-wheel drive can tow up to 3,500 pounds. Front-wheel drive is standard on every MDX package except the A-Spec® Package, by the way, so most Acura MDX SUVs can tow that quantity. But if you upgrade to Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD), which is standard on the A-Spec® Package, you can tow as much as 5,000 pounds. For clarification, an SUV with a 5,000 pound towing capacity can tow most recreational boats or small RV campers. What makes these towing capacities possible? These impressive Acura specs:

  • 290 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque
  • 3.5L V6 engine with direct injection
  • Integrated Dynamics System with Comfort, Normal, and Sport modes
  • 9-speed automatic transmission with Sequential SportShift Paddle Shifters

Acura Technology for Superior Towing

What makes the Acura MDX an exceptional SUV for towing around Riverside? Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA) with Traction Control and Motion Adaptive Steering, for one. This feature helps stabilize your Acura MDX on Riverside roads, and it comes standard on all Acura MDX configurations. It gathers data on the following:

  • Throttle position
  • Individual wheel speeds
  • Steering angle
  • Vehicle yaw rate
  • Lateral G-force

If you happen to oversteer, this system can reduce engine torque and apply brakes to specific wheels. And if your Acura has SH-AWD, this system can engage it to improve stabilization.
