The mid-level 2016 Acura MDX SH-AWD or all-wheel-drive model starts at $45,785.
The top-of-the-line 2016 Acura MDX SH-AWD with Advance, Entertainment and AcuraWatch Plus packages starts at $58,000.
Those prices also reflect a $100 price increase over the comparable 2015 models.
The MDX received a major redesign for the 2014 model year which included a new platform, a more efficient V6 engine and a fresh round of new standard features.
For the 2016 model year, changes include a new nine-speed automatic transmission, a push-button electronic gear selector and a new Super Handling All-Wheel-Drive system. The nine-speed automatic transmission replaces the previous six-speed automatic transmission.
The 2016 MDX and MDX with Technology Package models can be equipped with the AcuraWatch suite of advanced safety and driver-assist technologies, including road departure mitigation and rear cross-traffic monitor.
Other upgrades include a frameless rearview mirror and Siri Eyes Free voice recognition.
A multi-view angle rearview camera is standard on all models.
Edmunds says: Already a strong competitor in this segment, the 2016 Acura MDX should benefit from the increased efficiency and performance of its new transmission along with the allure of new features on the inside.
