A single teaser image of the 2017 MDX shows a bold exterior with a low and wide stance. The redesign is part of Acura's new "Precision Crafted Performance" initiative.
"The 2017 MDX will boast substantial design enhancements, added luxury comfort and convenience features and advanced new powertrain technology, in concert with the Acura brand's focus on Precision Crafted Performance," said American Honda Motor Co. in a statement on Wednesday.
Earlier this year, Acura said its new look focuses on "high-contrast details and the intersection of modern, sheer surfaces and muscular, organic sculpting."
Other elements include a long dash-to-axle ratio and the debut of a new Diamond Pentagon grille.
Pricing, launch timing and technical details on the 2017 MDX were not announced.
Honda said the 2017 MDX was designed by the Acura Design Studio in Torrance, California and will continue to be built at the company's Lincoln, Alabama plant. In early 2017, MDX production also will be added at the company's East Liberty, Ohio plant.
Edmunds says: Car shoppers will want to pay close attention to the debut of the 2017 MDX, since it plays in one of the most competitive and crowded segments on the market.
