Acura on Wednesday released a teaser sketch while announcing that it will unveil a reworked 2017 MDX at the New York International Auto Show on March 23.
The company said in a statement that the premium SUV "will boast substantial design enhancements, added luxury comfort and convenience features, and advanced new powertrain technology."
The teaser image indicates that Acura will be ridding the MDX of its shield-shaped grille in favour of one similar to the grille on the Precision concept on display at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit last month.
"We are sharpening our focus on the Precision Crafted Performance DNA of the Acura brand and the 2017 MDX will integrate new styling elements and powertrain technology that takes us another step in that direction," said Honda executive vice-president John Mendel.
No tech specs were provided, but the current seven-seat MDX features a direct-injection 3.5-litre V-6 engine that produces 290 horsepower and 267 lb-ft of torque.
