Looking for a luxury SUV that can sleekly and stylishly handle your life in Chalfont, Philadelphia, Warminster, Feasterville, or Trevose? We have just the vehicle for you.

Below, you'll learn more about how these two vehicles stack up against each other to help locals decide which is the better fit for their lifestyle. Read ahead to get started!

Lincoln MKX vs Acura MDX: Performance

When you're shopping for an SUV, you want an engine that can confidently lead the way. The 2018 Lincoln MKX's standard 3.7-L Ti-VCT V6 engine delivers by providing a whopping power output of 303 horsepower and 278 lb-ft of torque.

The 2018 Acura MDX, on the other hand, is powered by a smaller 3.5-L V6 engine. Not only will this engine give you just 290 horsepower and 267 lb-ft of torque, you'll also have to fuel this standard engine with premium gasoline which will hit you right in the wallet. You don't have to worry about this with the Lincoln MKX's standard engine.

Lincoln MKX vs Acura MDX: Technology

In addition to the power you'll get in the 2018 Lincoln MKX, you'll also have plenty of advanced technology available to you in this model. Available for the model is a 360-degree camera, rain-sending windshield wipers, and a Blind Sport Information System. Additionally, you'll be able to enjoy the standard Lincoln Way™ App.

The latter feature gives you the capability to control a variety of elements of your Lincoln right from your smartphone. You can remotely lock and unlock the doors, reserve parking spaces at or near your destination, schedule maintenance appointments, and request road-side assistance.

While you'll have access to many of these features in the 2018 Acura MDX, this model doesn't offer anything close to the Lincoln Way™ App.

Lincoln MKX vs Acura MDX: Convenience

One additional thing that luxury SUV drivers prioritize is convenience, which you'll have plenty of in both the 2018 Lincoln MKX and the 2018 Acura MDX. In both vehicles, you'll have a standard multi-zone automatic climate control system to set and maintain the perfect temperature for everyone onboard.

One other feature these two vehicles share is a remote start system. Get the car started and warmed up before you even walk out the front door. The Lincoln and the Acura begin to differ when it comes to standardizing this feature - remote start is only available in the Acura while the it is standard in the Lincoln MKX.

A few more available features you'll miss out on in the Acura MDX include a hands-free power liftgate and leather trimmed cooled front seats.
