Acura has celebrated the official production start of the new 2022 Acura MDX at the East Liberty Auto Plant in Ohio, U.S.A. The fourth-generation MDX has been completely redesigned from the ground up to serve as the new flagship of the Acura brand.

Based on Acura's Precision Crafted Performance DNA, it is the most premium, performance-focused and technologically advanced SUV in Acura history, and deliveries will begin in early February.

Completed units of the MDX on the factory line
Designed, developed and manufactured by a team of associates in Ohio and California, the 2022 MDX is underpinned by an all new light truck platform engineered to deliver premium proportions, more athletic handling performance, refined ride comfort, exceptional cabin quietness and improved collision protection.

Production associates at Acura's state-of-the-art engine plant in Anna, Ohio, will build the 3.5-litre V6 engine for the new MDX as well as the 3.0-litre turbocharged V6 that will power the Type S high performance variant, set to arrive in the summer.

The experienced production team at the East Liberty Auto Plant implemented sophisticated manufacturing technologies to assure superior build quality and premium refinement for the 2022 MDX. It is the first model launched exclusively on East Liberty Auto Plant's new 5,000-ton stamping press, which allows for sharper sculpting of the hood and body panels while forming steel and increased amounts of aluminium.

The ultra-rigid body is stiffer in every measure, created using a high-accuracy body weld process and new high-performance adhesive, and foundational to enabling MDX's finely tuned ride and handling qualities, as well as a quiet and more comfortable cabin.
