Read about this: Acura Mdx Towing Capacity

Towing capacity, sometimes called maximum towing capacity, is the maximum allowable weight that a vehicle can tow. Towing capacity is specified by the v­ehicle manufacturer and can usually be found in the owner's manual. Some towing hitches' towing capacity exceeds that of certain cars and trucks, but that is because hitches can often fit on many different types of tow vehicles. Always follow the auto manufacturer's designated towing capacity to prevent damage to your vehicle.Read more...
Does anyone have any experience towing with one of these? A friend of mine is thinking of buying one to tow his sailboat. The boat and trailer weigh about 3000. The trailer is a galvanized single axle with springs and no brakes. The Acura has a six cyl. eng. with a torque rating of 275 ft. lbs. and 300 hp. It doesn't get to its peak torque until about 5,000 rpm. He will be towing from Atlanta/Lake Lanier (some hills) to sailing regattas around the southeast, including FL, and needs to know if the vehicle will be suitable for his use. Does anyone have one of these. Thanks.Read more...
in all-wheel-drive models. The standard six-speed automatic helps pick up the slack, with short lower gears, smooth upshifts and responsive highway kickdown. Downshifts could come sooner as you accelerate through a bend, and a selectable Sport mode provides just that; it even drops a gear or two on downhill stretches. Acura's Super Handling All-Wheel Drive actively sends power to the rear or outside wheels to improve handling. Hammer it on a corner and the MDX swings its tail wide before the standardRead more...
Brother owned an '04 for 10 years and pulled his PS190 and many other trailers all the time. You'll be fine. Recently traded his in on a Ridgeline--same drivetrain and chassis. He preferred using it to tow over his 2001 Silverado 1/2 ton with a 5.3. Better power to weight and much better brakes, plus just nicer overall to drive. Only downfall vs. the Chevy was the shorter wheelbase, but it was never an issue. Actually traded the MDX and sold the Silverado to replace both with the Ridgeline--can fit his KTM in the back for hare scrambles without need of a trailer.Read more...
equipment and luring buyers away from the Lexus RX (which still has only five). My one-day drive of the 2007 model revealed that the MDX retains all the positive attributes for which Acuras are renowned and improves upon many performance aspects. It strays into risky styling territory and takes at least one ergonomic step backward. As before, the MDX is a single trim level, leaving option packages to distinguish one from another. It goes on sale this fall with prices ranging from about $41,000 to $48,000 an increase of roughly $4,000.Read more...
