AutoWeek followed up its "unapproved" online debut of the 2007 Honda CR-V with the unveiling of the 2007 Acura MDX, as well. Heavily inspired by the MD-X Concept that was unveiled at the 2006 New York Auto Show, the new MD-X sports an all-new design that differs sharply from the well-received looks of the current model. The new design works well too, especially the bold front grille treatment and gently bulging fender flares. The new interior also has been completely overhauled to be more "driver-oriented". A new 3.7-liter V6 will be powering the MDX and produces 300 horsepower and 275 ft-lbs. of torque, about 40 hp and 25 ft-lbs. more than the motor it replaces. Sport, Technology and Entertainment packages will encompass all the options available for the MDX and include such items as active dampers, a DVD nav system and rear-seat entertainment system. Though pricing has yet to be confirmed, AutoWeek guesses it will range from $41,000 to $48,000.

      For some reason the front end just says Aztek to me, the inside is nice though.

      All the expected "improvements" that you see in any new update -- more power, bigger, more equipment, blah blah blah. They'll sell a gazillion of them.

      i have to give honda credit for trying a new styling direction but i must agree with numbers seven, eight, thirteen, fourteen, fifteen, sixteen, and eighteen. i looks like Hawnduh photochopped their favourite bits and pieces from other manufacturers and wrapped it all into one large ungainly and ugly package. even the GMT900 trucks look more aesthetically pleasing than this dung pile. they need to take the agressiveness of the front end and put it towards an NSX replacement.

      it looks like an 86 Ford Tempo.

      it looks like an Audi A4.

      it looks like your mom.

      yawwwnnn.....if the best comment you can conjure is one of the banal 'it looks like....' ... then don't comment.

      Well, it looks better than the CR-V at least

      Overall the 2007 MDX will satisfy a much wider demographic than its earlier predecessor - and that's the bottom line for car designers. This is a huge step in the right direction unlike the 2001-2006 models were which just shades of a mini-van. I'm glad we didn't buy the Volvo XC90 opting to wait for the 07 MDX - it didn't disappoint...*sigh of relief*

      #4 : Lease a $42,000+ car for ~400 a month? Assuming you lease it for 48 months, with a money factor of .002 (4.9%), you will need to put down upwards of $10,000+ (assuming you have no traded in) to get close to that payment. If you already have a car you are leasing or own with out clear title, expect to pay more as you are probably upside down on that lease. Good luck.

      That starts with the new 3.7-liter V6 powering the new MDX. Horsepower is up 40 to 300 and the engine produces 275 lb ft of torque, up 25 lb ft. It is mated to a 5-speed sequential gearbox.

      Mimics the Infiniti FX45 from the A pillar back in my opinion. The front grill is the most distinctive feature.
