Update: New live pictures and prices added to the story.

Acura has showcased the 2024 ZDX primarily in the all-new Double Apex Blue Pearl and Tiger Eye Pearl colors. Recently, the company displayed a gray 2024 ZDX, specifically in the A-Spec grade, which I anticipate will be the most popular variant in the lineup.

The reason I say that is because Gray is the third-most-popular color for cars in the U.S., seen on 19.2% of the vehicles sold in 2023, as per a study iSeeCars released on October 3, 2023. In my opinion, the grayscale shade suits the ZDX’s low-profile, futuristic character better than blue or gold.

The gray paint lets the 2024 ZDX’s intricate details, like the Jewel Eye LED headlights and the embossed diamond pattern in the Diamond Pentagon surface in the nose section, come into focus. The light gray color on the rocker panels and lower corners of the front and rear bumpers adds distinctive styling. However, I’m not equally enthusiastic about the contrasting gloss black accents on various other parts of the body.

The 2024 Acura ZDX A-Spec AWD has an all-black interior with features like an 11-inch digital instrument cluster, an 11.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system with built-in Google Maps, Google Assistant, and Google Play apps and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, and an 18-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system. On the safety front, the AcuraWatch suite of advanced driver assistance systems, including Blind Zone Steering Assist and Rear Cross Traffic Braking, is standard.

The 2024 Acura ZDX A-Spec will be available in a range-focused single-motor RWD variant and a dual-motor AWD variant that offers better performance and more capability. So far, Acura has revealed the power output of the former – 342 hp. A 102 kWh battery pack is standard in the 2024 ZDX A-Spec, and Acura expects it to deliver a range of 325 miles in the RWD variant and 315 miles in the AWD variant. It’s possible to charge this battery pack at up to 190 kW, and the company estimates that charging it for just about 10 minutes can add 81 miles of range in the RWD variant.

The 2024 Acura ADX A-Spec retails at USD 64,500 in the single-motor RWD variant and USD 68,500 in the dual-motor AWD variant. These MSRPs exclude the destination charge, which Acura hasn’t yet revealed. The company says it will start delivering the 2024 ZDX at the beginning of spring.
