  • Entertainment Package - a $2,200 add-on to either the Sport or Technology package, the Entertainment option buys you a rear-seat DVD entertainment system, 110 VAC outlet, heated second row seats and a power tailgate.

      This is why I created my site. Appearance can be deceiving. Comparing base prices, as many other sites do, is pointless if you really want to know how much prices have increased.

      Turns out the 2007 MDX includes as standard nearly all of last year's Touring Package. (And the rain-sensing wipers might be there, they're just not listed on the hondanews site.) After you adjust for feature differences (no roof rack this year, for example), the new styling, engine, and drivetrain set you back an extra $175. And no, that's not forgetting a zero.

      Anyway, currently uploading updated 2007 database. It will be available by 8PM.

      the 2006 MDX starts at $37,125 not including destination.
      The new one is 39,995 not including destination.
      What do you get for $3K?
      Engine is now 300 hp instead of 253.
      standard awd
      7 seats are now standard
      Completely different suspension set-up, especially in the sport package.
      new transmission
      It's just light years improved from the previous model.

      Thanks for posting this. I'll get this into my database by tomorrow morning, probably sooner. The 2007 X5 is already there. It'll be interesting to see how the 2007 pricing really compares to the 2006 and the competition.

      In my neck of the woods, Acura dealers come with no BS. Their cars sell at MSRP with no pressure. You like the one on the lot, you can have it, you want to order one in the right color, you can have that too. You'll just have to wait a little bit.

      It's probably a privilege to be treated decently because the car is a little more expensive.

      MikeW: "...I hope those headlights have dynamic auto leveling, static auto leveling sucks- Toyota Prius, Mazda Rx-8, etc."

      -Oh my god, I lose so much sleep at night hoping my next car will have "dynamic auto leveling" headlights.

      Are you for real dude? People who dream of techno-crap like this have never even checked their own oil and have no idea what something like that even does for them. (If it really does anything other than help the marketing dept. sell cars to suckers like you.) Mike, if I have said it once, I've said it a million times, get a life and quit reading car mags. You sound like an idiot who spits out whatever techno-bable he reads.

      They can put a 300hp engine in an MDX SUV, but the flagship $90,000 NSX supercar gets 290hp. Come on Honda...

      it does appear to increase in pricing, but once i looked at all the interior shots form the car adn driver website, WOW!

      Acura has outdone itself

      too bad i will never own an SUV, so Acura needs to give the TL a major make over and also convert it to RWD w/AWD availability for the weaklings that can't handle RWD

      Anyone know were to get a cheezy set of golf slacks? Awesome options, but there's no way I'm putting kids in that thing. By the time you're done with all the dealer BS you'll be way over 45-50K.

      The MDX is still a great value when compared to other vehicles in its class. It's also better to purchase this thing new. I've been shopping around for a used one and the value does not drop it all. I think that Acura has done an excellent job with pushing it up a few notches in luxury and performance. It is also a solid built car. It's well worth the money and return for it.

      There was never an MDX offered without the VTM-4, dual electromagnetic rear clutch packs, no center or rear differential.

      I hope those headlights have dynamic auto leveling, static auto leveling sucks- Toyota Prius, Mazda Rx-8, etc.

      Hell the 2004-2006 TL had screwdriver leveling, and I have yet to see the 2007.

      Thankfully wider wheels & tires, 255/55 18 on 8" wheels versus 235/65 17 on 6.5" wide wheels. Can yoy say minivan.

      If only that were true here in Las Vegas. We to have rich people, but if you've ever watch the king of cars on A&E, you'd have an idea of what we deal with in Vegas (although they don't show the real deal). I challenge you to find a dealer here that sells MSRP. You usually have to hire a broker to get close to that.

      Oh yes, and pardon me.....but would you happen to have any Grey Poupon?
