The original MDX was the industry's first three-row SUV based on a unibody platform, offering increased comfort, more space and superior driving performance to existing SUVs based on truck platforms. The model received accolades from reviewers, and won Motor Trend's "2001 Truck of the Year in North America" and "2001 SUV of the Year" awards. Over the past twenty years, cumulative sales of the MDX have exceeded 100,000 units, confirming its title as the best-selling Acura model.
