2015 Acura MDX

Official release from Acura Media Newsroom:

07/11/2014 – TORRANCE, Calif.

Record sales in the first six months of 2014 have strengthened the third-generation MDX’s position as America’s best-selling three-row luxury SUV – not only in 2014, but of all time. Through June, sales of MDX are up 68.4 percent (compared to the same period last year) to 30,664 units, bringing cumulative sales of the MDX over its nearly 15-year history to 692,710 units, making it the most popular three-row luxury SUV of all time*. In fact, the MDX has topped all other three-row luxury SUVs in the annual sales rankings in every year since 2002.  Cumulative U.S. sales of MDX are anticipated to surpass 700,000 units before the end of the year.

“Luxury car buyers have spoken, and we really want to thank our Acura customers for making the MDX the clear winner among three-row luxury SUVs,” said Mike Accavitti, senior vice president and general manager of Acura Division. “MDX is the clear benchmark in its class, consistently delivering the best combination of features, function and performance that luxury buyers are after.”

2014 Acura MDX - Icefields Parkway, Banff/Jasper National Park

Although Highway 93 was given the name Icefields Parkway for its abundance of glaciers, there are many reasons why this route is considered one of the most scenic drives in the world. Connecting Alberta’s Banff National Park and Jasper National Park, this 232 km (144 mile) stretch of road combines jagged mountain peaks, sweeping valleys, turquoise hued lakes and curious wildlife into one spectacular journey. It’s estimated that over a million people drive the parkway each year to marvel at its dramatic and diverse landscape.

American Honda Motor Co., Inc. today reported June 2014 Honda and Acura vehicle sales of 129,023 units. The Honda division posted sales of 117,817 units in June while Acura sold 11,206 units in the same period. Year-to-date American Honda sales reached 739,436 units.

Overall Acura sales continue to reflect the decreasing supply of TL and TSX models as the company prepares for launch of the 2015 TLX line of luxury performance sedans later this summer. With an unprecedented first half of the year, MDX and RDX continue to sell at a near record pace, pushing Acura truck sales up 6.1 percent for the month.

  • Acura truck sales rise 6.1 percent in June
  • MDX June sales rose 27.7 percent on sales of 4,890 units
  • Posting its best-ever six-month sales performance, the Acura MDX led the division with sales of 30,644 units, an increase 68.4 percent over last year

“The MDX and RDX had a stellar first half of the year, certainly a good indicator that the Acura brand is moving in a strong direction,” said Mike Accavitti, Acura division senior vice president and general manager. “While we expected the reduced supply of sedans to impact sales this summer, the upcoming launch of the all-new 2015 TLX lineup heralds a new era for the Acura brand.”
