Acura ZDX Prices Will Start at $65,745

A GM platform underpins this SUV


Remember the Cadillac Lyriq? It’s the fancy EV SUV that doesn’t seem to have been a hot seller (calendar year sales for 2023 amounted to 9,155). Possibly a hotter seller will be Acura’s first EV effort based on the Lyriq’s Ultium platform. As Acura has just released pricing on this Yankee-Nipponese hybrid (the joint project, not the propulsion method), we thought it appropriate to tell you a little bit more about this SUV since it’s not every day you find a Japanese car based on an American.

If the name “ZDX” seems familiar, it may be because Acura used this name for a coupe-like SUV from 2010-13. The 2024 ZDX is completely different, playing the role of large, conventional SUV aside of the fact that it’s an EV. The model starts off as an A-Spec RWD with one electric motor that produces 342 horsepower. Along with a 102-kWh battery pack, you should be able to go 325 miles on one charge when the planets are aligned. Add AWD to the A-Spec (a $4,000 bump in price that includes a second motor), and your horsepower goes up to 459 and your range goes down to 315.

If you wish for something more exciting, then the Type S is your jam. Does 500 horsepower interest you? The powertrain consists of dual motors, adjustable air suspension with adaptive dampers, 22-inch wheels, and Brembo brakes. Alas, its range is 288 miles, which is little enough to possibly cause a case of range anxiety for some.

If you’re a potential customer, you may be interested in knowing that there is a choice of three charging packages, all of which include 60 kWh of free charging at Electrify America stations plus your choice of home charging station, portable charging kit, installation credit, and credits at EVGo charging stations. Is that like a Sinclair station?

The 2024 Acura ZDX will begin arriving to dealerships in the U.S. this spring starting at $65,745 for the A-Spec RWD and tops at $74.745 base for the Type S. Add summer performance tires to the latter and you can also add another grand to its price.
