2001 Acura MDX Reviews – The Acura MDX 2001 is one of the best car that made by Acura. The 2001 MDX is 100 percent pure Acura, or at least as pure as an Acura built off a Honda Odyssey mini-van platform can be. MDX is built on the same line as the Odyssey in Honda’s Alliston, Ontario, plant.
According to edmunds, with its standard 240-horsepower, 3.5-liter VTEC V6 (which meets ULEV regulations nationwide) and electronically controlled five-speed automatic transmission, the MDX delivers better performance than many of its competitors. With an estimated EPA rating of 17 city and 23 highway, the MDX is also one of the most fuel-efficient SUVs in its class.
Power travels to the wheels through Acura’s new Variable Torque Management (VTM) full-time four-wheel-drive system, which uses sensors to determine the vehicle’s dynamic position and transfers engine torque to the wheels with the most grip. Unlike conventional automatic 4WD systems, Acura’s proactively distributes engine torque during acceleration before wheel slip occurs. Unlike a Mercedes ML320, the MDX doesn’t have a 4WD-low gear range and the towing capacity is low (at 3,500 pounds) for its class.
In terms of appearance, Acura MDX includes Acura’s signature pentagon grille, clean headlamp treatment and sharply chiseled front fascia, but with a muscular look appropriate to an SUV. Some of us find the bulky nose a bit off-putting, but from most viewpoints, the MDX is quite a looker.
