Acura has released pricing on it’s 2011 ZDX – starting from $46505 (including destination charge.) If you opt for the top of the line Advance package, you’ll be spending a whopping $57055. Granted, it is pretty well loaded, with stuff like Adaptive Cruise Control, premium leather seats, Navigation, 415 watt audio system, and all sorts of other acronym–loaded fun.
My thoughts on the Acura ZDX are no secret – I hate it. It’s one of the ugliest vehicles on the road today. Along with the Accord Crosstour, it shows how badly Honda’s design team has gotten off track. That said, if you’re one of the few whose eyes aren’t offended by the ZDX, well, go nuts. Acura stuck with the 300 HP 3.7 liter V6 and SH–AWD combination, which provides solid performance.
All that said, I still don’t see the attraction to this vehicle. Extremely questionable aesthetics combined with an extremely hefty price tag makes this a tough sell. If you are sold on an Acura, why not look at the significantly less expensive TL? You lose very little space by going this route, and save a ton of cash. Just my $.02.
