Looks like they're trying to leave the $45-$55k sweet spot and go up market. I have to laugh at this:
Dude, you've sold over 1,000,000 of these things since it's debut. It's been mainstream for at least a decade."The heritage of the MDX was at risk," says the Acura's global development leader, Tom Nguyen. "The vehicle was dangerously close to becoming mainstream. We had to go big."

I love that this heritage shot of all MDX generations looks highly unremarkable. Every Costco/strip-mall parking lot across the US, at anytime is filled with MDX's .
I suppose that's the only remarkable thing about MDX's. They still exist and outlived their BMW X5 and Mercedes ML equivalents.

It's weird to me that they put the shift lever in the middle of the console. It looks like that space could have been utilized better if they had shifted the gear selector to the driver's side.
