Acura announced that their new BMW X6 fighter, the ZDX crossover will go on sale December 15 in three trim levels. The ZDX is the only vehicle in the same niche as the X6, you know the sport coupe four-door SUV thing!, in the market and while BMW’s looks is its strength point, Acura ZDX cannot rely on that to sell!
