First and foremost, we should fill you in on what is housed under the MDX model’s hood. There lies a 3.5-liter i-VTEC engine that can produce as many as 290 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque – you’ll also be in line for the MDX Drive-by-Wire™ throttle system, which can vary your vehicle’s throttle sensitivity for appropriate responses to different driving conditions. All in all, this helps to give you an optimal driving experience with the elements in mind.
