2010 Acura ZDX official U.S. debut

2010 Acura ZDX
Acura, Honda’s North American luxury brand, has launched the all-new 2010 Acura ZDX “four-door sports coupe,” after showing off a concept version a few months ago. Copying the X6 segment-bender created by BMW, ZDX features coupe-like styling with the added benefit of a commanding presence and flexible utility.

Staying true to the prototype model that debuted at the 2009 New York Auto Show in April, the production ZDX will feature the key design highlights of a panoramic glass roof, hidden rear door handles and bold fender flares.

Along with head-turning styling, the ZDX will boast outstanding performance from its 3.7L V6 engine mated to an all-new 6-speed automatic transmission with steering wheel mounted paddle shifters. The 3.7L SOHC V6 all-aluminum engine will generate 300 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque. Standard on the ZDX is Acura’s exclusive Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system. The SH-AWD system expands the ZDX’s appeal by providing outstanding handling as well as superior all-season capability. Standard on the ZDX are 19-inch 7-spoke alloy wheels, the largest standard wheel in the Acura lineup.

Inside, the ZDX exhibits the highest levels of refinement and sophistication. Every ZDX interior will feature a hand-stitched leather dash, panels and sculpted center console.

The ZDX’s flexible utility enables customers to have great utility coupled with sleek styling. The ZDX can seat up to five adults while maintaining a generous amount of cargo space behind the second row of seats. The cargo area can also be expanded to accommodate longer objects, such as golf bags, by removing side panels in the cargo-compartment sidewalls. As an added bonus, there is an integrated under-floor storage area.

When the ZDX goes on sale this winter, customers will have the choice of three distinct trim levels: ZDX, ZDX with Technology Package and the ultra premium, ZDX with Advance Package. Like all Acura models, the ZDX will come generously equipped from the start. The panoramic glass roof with moveable sunshades, hand-stitched leather interior, HandsFreeLink Bluetooth connectivity, power tailgate, and a high powered audio system with CD player, AM/FM/XM radio and USB audio interface with iPod integration are all standard features.

The ZDX with Technology Package adds several features including a Navigation System with Voice Recognition, an Acura/ELS Surround premium audio system and a new multi-view rear camera. The Advance Package boasts additional customer enhancing technologies like a blind spot information system, a Collision Mitigating Braking System (CMBS), and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC).

When the ZDX goes on-sale, it will bring a new level of prestige to the Acura lineup. The ZDX will be priced and positioned between the MDX luxury SUV and the RL luxury sedan. Pricing and additional details will be released at a later date.
