It will be hand-built and very, very, red.
PMC Edition Acura vehicles tend to be rare, and the 2020 MDX version will be no different. PMC stands for Performance Manufacturing Center, and it's the facility in Ohio that builds Acura's NSX. The TSX PMC Edition showed its face at the 2019 New York Auto Show, complete with red nano pigment technology paint previously reserved solely for the NSX supercar.
The Acura MDX PMC Edition follows very much in its footsteps and 330 and will be hand-assembled at the PMC plant. That will be 300 for the US, 30 for Canada, and none for anyone else.
The MDX PMC Edition is based around the MDX Advance Package and only comes in the Valencia Red Pearl paint with a black interior featuring red contrast stitching. Added to the MDX is a bunch of A-Spec and sport appearance items, a black mesh grille, black chrome exhaust tips, and 20-inch wheels with a glossy black finish. There's then more gloss black paint added to the door handles, window trim, door mirrors, and the roof.
What's noticeably missing, though, is any actual performance upgrades, with power coming from a 3.5-liter naturally aspirated V6 engine delivering 290 horsepower and 267 lb-ft of torque.
The driver and passengers will be sitting in Milano leather upholstered heated and ventilated seats with Alcantara inserts, and the driver will be holding a heated steering wheel. A 10-speaker premium audio system provides the sound, and GPS navigation, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay come as standard.
The 2020 MDX PMC Edition is due to launch early next year but will be debuting on November 20 at the 2019 LA Auto Show. Pricing is expected to be around the $65,000 mark, which is about a $10,000 premium for having the crossover hand-built versus a production line model close to the same spec.
