It’s important to look cool, even when towing a boat in Grosse Pointe traffic. Acura knows this, which is why they built the new MDX to be both stylish and powerful. The 2020 Acura MDX towing capacity actually rivals some mid-size pickups. That’s why it’s a favorite among the customers who come in to Jeffrey Acura. So, how much can an Acura MDX tow? That depends on the drivetrain, so let’s break it down.

How Much Can a 2020 Acura MDX Tow?

The 2020 Acura MDX towing capacity differs based on which drivetrain option you choose. The MDX comes standard with front-wheel drive. This option has a maximum towing capacity of 3,500 pounds, which is enough for a trailer and a small boat. However, if you opt for the Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD), you get a whopping 5,000-pound maximum towing capacity, which is more than enough for most St. Clair Shores luxury SUV owners.
