We already knew everyone was going after BMW right? Even Honda’s luxury division, Acura, has its eyes on targeting the Bavarian pacesetter even when it comes to BMW’s latest sports crossover vehicles including the X6. What is Acura’s answer to the BMW X6? It is the Acura ZDX crossover which is slated to debut at this year’s New York International Auto show this week. Also news about the new Acura ZDX is that it will be going on sale this fall. Expected power plants may include a turbocharged version of the widely used 3.7-liter 305hp V6 found in the MDX and RL or it could be derivative of the TL’s 3.5-liter engine with the addition of a turbo.
