We bring you the full scoop on the new 2010 Acura ZDX, and its 300 horsepower engine.
We are now getting a handle on the full stats of the new 2010 Acura ZDX. The ZDX is meant to combine a coupe's performance with the more comfortable characteristics of a sedan. This new car is the first complete vehicle to come out of the Southern California-based Acura design studio, but the car still looks distinctly more Japanese than American. As such, it does have four doors, with the ability to fit multiple types of cargo under the lengthy glass hatch.
The vechile uses a 3.7-liter V6 VTEC engine that dishes out 300-horsepower and up to 270 ft-lbs of torque, and the "Super Handling All-Wheel Drive," or SH-AWD, as Acura calls it. Acura claims that the two combine for "one of the most innovative luxury vehicles on the market." Suspension can be changed between Comfort and Sport settings, by way of the Integrated Dynamics System. A dual, stainless steel exhaust is seen at the back, and is also optimized for sporty driving.
Acura claims five people can fit comfortably inside the leather-accented interior. Heated leather sport seats keep those at the front comfortable. They will have access to a navigation system that makes use of real-time information. A rearview camera is built in, as well as the Collission Mitigating Braking System, which takes over in case of a near-accident. Blind spot warnings are also available. Meanwhile, all passengers will sit under the large panoramic glass roof, supposedly the largest in class. A 10-speaker surround sound system with 15gb hard drive keeps the tunes audible for everyone.
