2022 Acura MDX Type S: A Faster Flagship

The 2022 Acura MDX represents a major milestone for Acura. The automaker was so excited about its plans for the premium performance SUV that it skipped the 2021 model year altogether, straight into the next generation. The all-new Acura MDX earns its flagship ranking with its striking style, classy accommodations, cutting-edge tech features, and engaging dynamics. And now, Acura is adding a Type S variant to the lineup and taking the Acura MDX's Precision Crafted Performance to the next level.

Type S Interior

The Acura MDX Type S elevates the SUV's already premium interior to be even more driver-focused, with features like a flat-bottom sport steering wheel, sport pedals, and soft-touch Milano leather upholstery with Black Ultrasuede® inserts. In the second row, a multifunction middle seat can be folded to access armrests and cupholders or removed to create captain's chairs. The MDX Type S is also generously equipped, with numerous standard amenities to enhance your Auburn or Opelika drives. Highlights include:

  • Heated and ventilated front seats
  • Three-zone automatic climate control
  • Sliding and reclining second-row seats
  • CabinTalk intercom system
  • 16-speaker ELS premium audio system
  • Rear window sunshades
  • Customizable ambient lighting

Type S Performance

The biggest upgrade for the Acura MDX Type S is found under the hood: an exclusive 24-valve, DOHC, 3.0-liter V-6 engine aspirated by a twin-scroll turbocharger. The potent powerplant produces 355 horsepower and 354 pound-feet of torque, while the quick and responsive 10-speed automatic transmission has been re-engineered to accommodate the engine's extra torque. A Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ system with torque-vectoring provides enhanced handling and inclement-weather control.

The standard Acura MDX is remarkably athletic for its size. But the Type S further improves agility by building on the model-specific platform with a performance-tuned chassis, double-wishbone front suspension, an Adaptive Damper System, and adjustable air suspension. The Integrated Dynamics System provides seven selectable driving modes, including a Type S-exclusive "Sport+" setting and a new "Lift" mode that allows you to increase ground clearance on demand by up to two inches. The Type S 21-inch wheels are wrapped in performance tires, and large Brembo front brakes help keep the MDX's upgraded power under control.

Type S Technology

A 12.3-inch Acura Precision Cockpit™ digital gauge cluster lets you customize the display to your preferences, providing safe and convenient access to helpful information like turn-by-turn navigation, infotainment details, driver aid status, and more. In the center stack, a 12.3-inch HD Display includes wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for seamless access to smartphone features like hands-free calls and messages, Google and Apple Maps, streaming music, and much more. And it's all controlled by Acura's intuitive and innovative True Touchpad Interface.

Driver Assistance

While nothing can take the place of staying alert behind the wheel, the MDX Type S provides an extra degree of confidence and convenience with a full roster of AcuraWatch™ driver aids as standard equipment, including

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System w/ Advanced Pedestrian Detection
  • Adaptive Cruise Control w/ Low-Speed Follow and Traffic Jam Assist
  • Lane Keeping Assist System
  • Blind Spot Information System
  • Rear Cross Traffic Monitor
  • Road Departure Mitigation System
  • Front and Rear Parking Sensors
