Acura MDX Sport Hybrid Horsepower and Torque

Take a look at standard Acura MDX configurations and you’ll find each one fits a 3.5L V6 engine as standard for:

  • Up to 290 hp
  • Up to 267 lb-ft of torque

The Acura MDX Sport Hybrid steps things up even further by combining a 3-Motor Hybrid System with a 3.0L V6 gas engine. The 3-Motor Hybrid System alone provides:

  • One 47 hp electric motor within the transmission housing.
  • Two 36 hp electric motors set side-by-side between the rear wheels.

An advanced lithium-ion battery is used to send power to all three motors while a Power Distribution Unit placed under the center console monitors load levels, driving behavior, and vehicle status to determine exactly how much should be sent to each one. Total Acura MDX Sport Hybrid specs come in at up to an impressive:

  • 321 hp combined.
  • 289 lb-ft of torque combined.

Acura MDX Sport Hybrid MPG

It’s easy to get distracted by Acura MDX horsepower and torque ratings, but the main reason drivers turn to the Sport Hybrid is its extraordinary efficiency ratings. Conventional models use a 9-Speed Automatic Transmission with Sequential SportShift Paddle Shifters, but the Sport Hybrid changes things up with a Motor-Integrated 7-Speed DCT (Dual Clutch Transmission). It uses one clutch for odd numbered forward gears and another for even, so the next gear up and down will always be preset for seamless power delivery and low fuel consumption.


Standard Acura MDX mpg ratings reach:

  • Up to an EPA-estimated 20 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway with FWD
  • Up to an EPA-estimated 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway with SH-AWD*

While those numbers are impressive for a conventionally powered model, the Acura MDX Sport Hybrid takes things further by offering:

  • Up to an EPA-estimated 26 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway*
