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.

2014 Acura MDX Road Trip: Alberta’s Rockies Part 1

2014 Acura MDX - Two Jack Lake, Banff National Park

Taking the Scenic Route Through Alberta’s Rockies

Anyone who has spent some time in the province of Alberta, Canada will likely have travelled between its two largest cities, Edmonton and Calgary. The road most travelled is Highway 2, at under three hours it’s the most direct route if you want to quickly get from one city to the other.

After picking up a 2014 Acura MDX loaner from Acura Canada’s Calgary office one June morning, I hopped onto Highway 2 towards Edmonton, only to exit off after just a few minutes. I had already decided weeks beforehand that I wouldn’t be taking Highway 2 North. I was Westbound, towards the majestic Rocky Mountains of Alberta. This detour would eventually lead me to Edmonton, but not before experiencing a road trip through one of the most scenic drives in in the world: Banff to Jasper via Highway 93, also known as the Icefields Parkway.

If you’re wondering what 22″ wheels would look like on the 2014 Acura MDX look no further. The folks over at Acura of Pembroke Pines put a fully accessorized 2014 Acura MDX SH-AWD on 22″ Vossen CVTs. All other things aside, I think this setup looks fantastic.

Also pictured is a 2014 Acura RDX sitting on 20″ Vossen CV5s.
