The mass production of the all-new 2014 Acura MDX luxury SUV has begun at Honda Manufacturing of Alabama, with the vehicle set to go on sale at US dealers nationwide in the coming weeks.
Designed, engineered and developed in the United States, the seven-seater vehicle received a new platform for 2014 and Acura says it will come with improved ride comfort, a more versatile and luxurious cabin, class-leading fuel economy and enhanced dynamic performance. Also, the Japanese company claims the new MDX will achieve the highest available safety rating.

"What a beautiful vehicle we have created together," said Jim Keller, chief engineer for the 2014 Acura MDX at Honda R&D in Raymond, Ohio. "Today we celebrate not a finish line, but a starting line. Our race is just beginning, and to win this race takes a constant and committed focus on quality and on the customer."

Honda also announced that the 2014 Acura MDX will be offered for the first time with a more affordable and more fuel-efficient two-wheel-drive configuration, but pricing information has yet to be revealed. Besides the Acura MDX, the Alabama facility also builds Honda vehicles such as the Odyssey minivan, the Pilot SUV and the Ridgeline pickup.
