Honda will be busy during this year's New York International Auto Show. The automaker plans to unveil a freshened version of its Odyssey minivan and the production version of the MDX crossover from its Acura luxury arm.
An MDX prototype (above) met the public at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, so it's no surprise that we'll get to see the production model in New York. Honda says the 2014 MDX uses a totally new platform and that the third generation of the seven-passenger crossover is longer than its predecessor. The automaker claims that the new MDX will be roomier, more comfortable and have a more versatile cabin than the outgoing model.
Front- and all-wheel drive will be available and power comes from a new 3.5-liter V-6 with direct injection and a cylinder deactivation feature to shut down cylinders for increased fuel economy. The all-wheel-drive-only outgoing model uses a 300-horsepower, 3.7-liter V-6.
