2010 Acura ZDX

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.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.

Because maintaining the deep-draw panels was an essential part of the body design, the manufacturing team was tasked with finding a way to produce them.Eventually the original stamping team, working in secrecy, found a way to make the part in one piece with the help of a low-friction phosphate coating between the die and the steel panel, which improves its formability. Although creating the one-piece deep-draw side panel took a year and a half of development work, the finished component dramatically adds to the ZDX’s provocative appearance and enhances the precision of the metal craftwork.

Befitting its “sports coupe” design, the 2010 ZDX is also longer, lower/wider and features a significantly wider track than its primary market competitors. As a result, in stature as well as design, the ZDX offers an especially dramatic appearance and driving character.
