Acura Unveils Hand-Built PMC Edition MDX at the LA Auto Show

Source: Road Show

Like the PMC TLX before it, this SUV will be hand-built in Acura's NSX factory.

Acura's hand-built PMC Edition lineup started with just one car, but at the 2019 LA Auto Show, the automaker finally brought a second vehicle into the mix.

If you don't remember what the whole PMC thing is all about, then we're entirely too happy to explain. PMC stands for Performance Manufacturing Center, which is the facility in Ohio where Acura builds its NSX supercar.

The PMC Edition cars are very limited runs of otherwise normal-production -- but very well optioned -- vehicles that are essentially hand-assembled by highly skilled technicians.

What else separates a PMC Edition from a regular MDX?

Well, for one thing, it's offered in only one colour, albeit a lovely one. It's called Valencia red pearl, and even that's given special love and attention at the factory. There are also a bunch of gloss black exterior trim pieces that are exclusive to the PMC, and gloss black 20-inch wheels. Inside, it's all a sea of exclusive black leather and Alcantara with red accent stitching.

The PMC MDX gets a very nicely equipped interior with lots of soft black leather and Alcantara.


The rest of the equipment is a mix of A-Spec and sport appearance package stuff with all the safety features like Acura

Watch and infotainment and navigation equipment thrown in. What you'll notice very clearly is a distinct lack of any performance modifications.

The PMC is still powered by Acura's 3.5-litre direct-injected V6 that still makes 290 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque. That engine is again mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission and paired with Acura's Super Handling All-Wheel Drive system.
