SPIED ON THE STREET! 2014 MDX, now with less tarp!

Chris Doane Automotive snagged this set of photos of the 2014 Acura MDX, in a considerably lesser state of camouflage than previously seen before. Here we can see a bit more of the vehicle's shape as well as get a peek at the (expected) LED headlights and other details. From these photos, it appears that Acura has (wisely) decided not to mess too much with the MDX's proven styling formula. Mechanically, we're expecting the new MDX to benefit from Honda's new Earth Dreams V6 engine family with Direct Injection and though we haven't heard anything definitive, it seems natural and logical to bet that Acura's Sport Hybrid AWD system will find its way into a version of the upcoming MDX as well.

Quoted below is CDA's text that accompanied this photo set.

SPIED: '14 Acura MDX Drops Its Camo!

The last time we saw the next-gen, 2014 Acura MDX, the entire prototype was covered in thick, padded vinyl. Today, thankfully, Acura engineers have stripped all that off, giving us a much better idea of what the new MDX will look like.

Up front, no one will be surprised to see Acura's "shield" grille. We can also see what look to be a pair of very thin headlights. These units look as though they could be similar to the LED units we've seen on the RLX sedan. LED daytime running lights are also visible along the top of the headlight cluster.

Additionally, the sculpting of the sheet metal is also much easier to see now, along with a set of jeweled tail lights at the rear.

Under the hood, we hear the MDX will gain Acura's new direct injection V6, and possibly a version of Acura's Sport Hybrid SH-AWD system.
