Previewed at the 2009 New York Auto Show as a prototype, the 2010 ZDX is entering the auto market as a main competitor for the BMW X6. It features dramatic styling, outstanding performance and the latest in advanced technology. Sales will begin this winter and the ZDX will be offered in three distinct trim levels: the base ZDX, ZDX with the Technology Package and the top of the line ZDX with the Advanced Package. However prices have yet to be officially announced and are expected to be reveled sometime in the near future.
Under the hood, Acura will use a 3.7 Liter V6 that will put out 300 HP and 270 lb-ft of torque and will be mated to an all new 6 speed automatic transmission.
Designed to merge the emotional appeal of a sports coupe and all-season, all-surface versatility, the all-new ZDX breaks new barriers for Acura and for the luxury market. Its "Passionate Getaway" design honors the driver and passenger first, while also providing an impeccably finished luggage storage area that bests that of most luxury sedans. The rear seat area, with its abbreviated doors and door handles creatively integrated into the C-pillar, accommodates three additional passengers as required for occasional trips. But overall, the ZDX targets its mission as a 2-passenger personal escape vehicle with unmistakable Acura style.
The ZDX will be offered with a host of creature comforts and technological innovations, like: the panoramic glass roof with retractable sunshade, hand crafted leather interior, HandsFreeLink Bluetooth connectivity for cellular telephones, a power lift tailgate as well as a high powered stereo system that will play everything from CDs and iPods to AM/FM/XM radio signals, all standard.
Press release after the jump.
