2011 New Acura ZDX Specs

After being officially revealed for the 2010 model year, the Acura ZDX enters the 2011 model year offering the same level of luxury and performance. The 2011 ZDX will be offered in three trim levels: ZDX ($45,645), ZDX with Technology Package ($50,145), and ZDX with Advance Package ($56,195).

Designed as a competitor for the BMW X6, the ZDX features exquisite design elements consisting of a panoramic glass roof, hidden rear door handles, and bold fender flares. It is powered by a V6 engine that delivers 300 HP and comes standard with a Sequential SportShift 6-speed automatic transmission.

However, under the tent, he came with a 3.7-liter, VTEC V-6 engine that produces 300 hp and 270 lb-ft. Can cruise from zero to 60 mph in just 6.7 seconds, while hitting a top speed of 130 mph. ZDX estimated EPA rating 16/22 mpg.

The ZDX is one of the more perplexing (and perhaps frustrating) packages in recent years. It's drop-dead gorgeous from some angles, yet it lacks practicality in some very basic ways, like adequate headroom or a cargo area that can take paper shopping sacks without obscuring visibility even more. All while the roofline itself is a little too tall, by some tastes, to be called a coupe. Even getting into the back seat is much harder than you'd expect due to the odd cutlines.

Price is likely part of the trouble, too. The ZDX from the start was priced a little too high for its target market—which we would think are younger stylistas: urban gallery owners, clothiers, and the like, as well as a few ad execs and creative directors.

Acura calls the new ZDX "a provocative new four door sports coupe," but it's hard to feel shocked or outraged that anyone would attempt to pass off an SUV as a sports car. In the context of vehicles like Caddy's Escalade, Porsche's Cayenne, Infiniti's FX and BMW's X6, trying to define exactly what an SUV is these days is like trying to explain the differences between a Corvette and a Camry to a caveman.

Body and Chassis
The TSX grew in overall dimensions for the latest model — gaining 3.0 inches in total width, 2.6 inches in track, 1.3 inches in wheelbase and 2.4 inches in overall length. Acura says these changes result in more interior room and improved ride quality.

The automaker also made several improvements to the construction of the body, resulting in improved stiffness and increased quietness. A closed-channel cross-braced roof structure and stronger rear bulkhead reduce vibration. New A-, B- and C-pillar separators also improve quietness over rough roads and at high speed. Outward visibility is also improved by the slimmer A-pillar design.

Overall aerodynamics have been enhanced, thanks to a new shape and improved underbody airflow.Another first for Acura are the TSX’s new dual-mode suspension dampers, which adjust compression damping characteristics to suit the vehicle speed, cornering forces and road surface.

The 2011 Acura ZDX is a luxury four-door sedan with sleek styling on the outside and a variety of features including:
  • Pricing: A $45,495 MSRP is expected for the 2011 ZDX
  • Engine: The 2011 ZDX will be powered by the same 300 horsepower 3.7-liter VTEC V6 engine as the 2010 model.
  • Fuel Economy: Fuel economy for 2011 will remain at 16/22 miles per gallon city/highway.
  • Acceleration: Acceleration for the ZDX is average at 6.7 seconds for zero to sixty miles per hour.
  • Transmission:6-speed automatic transmission with manual shifting option.
  • Car Safety Features: Five stars across the line and in every category, the 2010 Acura RDX features a full complement of airbags, active front head restraints and new for 2011, a collision avoidance system.
  • Warranty: Acura’s warranty is better than some, not as good as others at 4-years/50,000 miles.
