2010 ZDX Caught Testing at the Tail of the Dragon

Somebody sent a link to us via e-mail last night but they must have used an invalid email address because when we tried responding, the e-mails bounced.

As you can see here, a photographer who spends a lot of time in Deal's Gap snagged a bunch of shots of the ZDX. Unfortunately at this point we only have medium resolution versions of these photos, but we have purchased the high resolution versions and will post those as soon as we can get our hands on them.

If you look closely in these photos, you will see that Acura's engineers are benchmarking the ZDX against an Infiniti FX and a BMW X6 (I'm assuming they are the 6-cylinder versions). There are really no new details revealed by these shots, unfortunately, but it's good to see Acura testing their vehicles on the best driving roads in the USA.

Once we saw these shots, we figured Killboy.com probably got a few of them on the same day as well. Well, they did (despite incorrectly guessing it was an "Infinity"), but strangely the range of photos that presumably contains the ZDX photos is missing from their online store, but you can see part of one of the photos of the Infiniti FX.

  Honestly...The ZDX is ugly. Acura needs to rethink vehicle styling on all 2010s!!
