Video: 2010 Acura ZDX Prototype Debuts In New York

[singlepic=872,440,330]

This year, for the 2009 New York Auto Show, Acura brought its new 4-door coupe prototype.  The 2010 Acura ZDX is based on the TL while also bringing in the functionality of its SUV siblings, the MDX and the RDX. Under the hood, the ZDX boasts a 3.7L V6 engine producing 300 horsepower mated to a 6-speed sequential automatic transmission, giving performance like that of a sport coupe.  In addition to its performance abilities, the 2010 ZDX will also be luxurious.  It boasts a panoramic glass roof, glass tailgate, and blind spot warning system.  While pricing has not been released, we’re guessing that you won’t be able to get your hands on a ZDX for less than $40,000.

While it would be easy to view the ZDX as a crossover or as the poor man’s BMW X6, the ZDX lacks the truck-like feel of similar vehicles, despite the standard AWD.  The ZDX also has very unique proportions.  It stands less than 62 inches tall, while the RDX is 3 inches taller, and the MDX is 6 inches taller. While the ZDX is as wide as the MDX, at 78.5 inches, it is longer by 2 inches, coming in at 192.4 inches.

Charlie is Roadfly’s founder and publisher, and was taught to drive by his father in a 1974 Porsche 914. That made poor Charlie a Porsche fanboy for life, and after driving a 911SC at 16, he bought and campaigned a variety of 944s at racetracks up and down the East Coast, earning awards and track records in his twenties. Charlie never really got over the car bug, and after a career in real estate development he founded the Internet media firm that became Roadfly. Charlie lives in McLean, VA with his wife and two daughters, and between the demands of family and business doesn’t have much time to play with cars anymore, excluding the machinery we review.
