JX takes the win for me!

Long the segment favorite among luxury SUV-buying families, the Acura MDX debuted in 2001 as a black sheep with road-minded sensibilities that stood in stark contrast to its competition.

Based on the Nissan Murano platform, but with a longer wheelbase and wider body, the Infiniti JX offers a refreshed perspective on the idea Acura introduced with the MDX more than a decade ago: luxury and value rolled into one.

As a smaller seven-seater than the brand’s QX SUV, the JX may be able to scuttle in as a refreshed product and snap up buyers before Acura has a chance to rebut with a new product cycle. That said, the two vehicles bring about an intriguing apples-to-apples comparison.

the site has the horsepower and torque reversed for the JX.... it should be 265hp with 248 ft lbs of torque....
Acura needs to revamp their MDX if they want to compete with the JX. There hasn't been any big improvements on the MDX for a while now.
I don't think the Acura should be compared to Infiniti, Acura's "luxury" cars are so cheap, it's like the Buick of Japanese luxury vehicle manufactures. JX is better compared to the Lexus RX or LX
