The countdown to the Los Angeles Auto Show continues as Acura has announced plans to unveil the MDX PMC Edition.
Set to be unveiled on November 20th, the MDX PMC Edition follows in the footsteps of the TLX PMC Edition that was unveiled earlier this year. Just like the sedan, the crossover will be hand-assembled at the company’s Performance Manufacturing Center (PMC) in Marysville, Ohio where they build the NSX.
Besides being built at a special plant, the MDX PMC Edition will have a unique exterior with exclusive Valencia Red Pearl paint. The model also has a black mesh grille, black chrome exhaust tips and 20-inch wheels with a gloss black finish. Gloss black paint will also be applied to the roof, exterior mirrors, door handles and window trim.

The two-tone styling continues in the cabin as drivers will find black Milano leather seats with Alcantara inserts as well as red contrast stitching. Other highlights include an A-Spec sport steering wheel, A-Spec floor mats and an individually numbered plaque on the center console.
Since the PMC Edition is based on the MDX Advance Package, the crossover also has heated / ventilated front seats, heated second row captain’s chairs and a heated steering wheel. Other niceties include a 10-speaker premium audio system, GPS navigation and an infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility. There’s also rain-sensing wipers, front / rear parking sensors, a blind spot monitor and rear cross traffic alert.
Power is provided by a familiar 3.5-liter V6 engine that produces 290 hp (216 kW / 294 PS) and 267 lb-ft (362 Nm) of torque. It is connected to a nine-speed automatic transmission and a super-handling all-wheel drive system.
The 2020 MDX PMC Edition will be launched early next year and production will be limited to 330 units. 300 of them are destined for the United States, where pricing will begin in the "mid-$60,000 range." Canada will get the remaining 30 units, but there’s no word on local pricing.
