2013 marks the final year of production for the Acura ZDX. The SUV will come in just one well-equipped trim that receives a revised grille and safety features such as lane-departure warning and parking sensors. The Advanced Package that included dynamic cruise control and selectable suspension setting is no longer an option.
Ever since debuting for the 2010 model year, the ZDX has been the odd duck in Acura's lineup. An admittedly niche vehicle, the ZDX is meant to be an all-wheel-drive, 5-passenger SUV with coupe-like styling and the luxury and tech amenities found in Acura's sedans. But rather than the whole being greater than the sum of its parts, the ZDX's attributes work against it. This SUV's style-first exterior results in compromised interior visibility, tight rear passenger space, and a limited cargo bay. Factor in a starting price around $50,000 and it's little surprise the ZDX crossover SUV failed to connect with buyers. That being the case, 2013 marks the final year of production for Acura's short-lived ZDX.
