2014 Acura MDX: Fuel Economy Update for July
August 5, 2014
We scored some personal bests in our 2014 Acura MDX this month. A road trip to Oregon by our Director of Vehicle Testing, Dan Edmunds, included several long stretches that delivered the record numbers.
The most impressive feat was its single tank range record of 541.1 miles. That's a pretty impressive number for an SUV of its size. That same tank also netted the MDX its most efficient average mileage number of 29.9 mpg, another impressive number for a three-row vehicle with a big V6 under the hood.
Thanks to tanks like that, the overall average for our MDX jumped from 20.1 mpg to 20.6 mpg. That's just shy of its combined rating of 21 mpg from the EPA. We have another month or so to push our MDX past the 20,000 mile mark and see how it finishes out its year with us.
