TORRANCE, Calif., Sept. 22 -- The 2004 MDX luxury SUV, which goes on sale today at Acura dealers nationwide, will be priced at $36,400. The MDX with Touring Package, which adds a roof rack, premium Acura/Bose(R) Music System and other additional features, will be priced at $39,000. The MDX with Touring Package comes with two available factory options: the Acura Navigation System with Voice Recognition(TM) priced at $2,200 and the Acura DVD Entertainment System priced at $1,500. Despite numerous improvements, 2004 MDX prices reflect a modest 1.8 percent increase, or $700, compared to last year based on a sales-weighted average.

The 2004 MDX delivers V-8-like performance with a new dual exhaust system adding five extra horsepower for a total output of 265 horsepower. Styling enhancements include a redesigned front fascia with a more integrated chin spoiler, the addition of satin chrome finish trim front and rear, and a sportier taillight assembly. Two new exterior colors, Aspen Pearl White and Burnished Bronze Metallic join the MDX palette for 2004. Already equipped with several cutting-edge safety systems, the 2004 MDX receives a new Side Curtain Airbag system that helps to protect occupants in all three rows, and a direct Tire Pressure Monitoring System that alerts the driver when tire pressure drops significantly below recommended levels.
