Honda’s J37A 3.7-liter V6 engine was produced at a facility in the US from 2006 to 2014 and was installed in the largest and most expensive Legend sedan and many Acura models. This motor existed in five modifications, which did not differ much from each other.
The Acura ZDX is a premium mid-size Japanese SUV from the manufacturer Acura. Produced from 2009 to 2013. It has a liftback body type and an all-wheel drive layout. It is considered the most luxurious and expensive car of the brand. Initially, the car was created to compete with BMW X6, and therefore was sold primarily in the North American market. However, it did not gain popularity and was soon discontinued. Officially, Acura ZDX was sold only in North America and Canada, and in Russia, Arabia only unofficially thanks to “gray” dealers.
The car was created on the platform of the Acura MDX / Honda Pilot models, and its appearance was conceived in the company’s California design studio. The silhouette like a hatchback gave the Acura ZDX an original look, but because of this, the rear seats turned out to be cramped and the trunk volume turned out to be quite small for such a fairly large car (body length 4.89 meters).
An aluminum V6 engine with a volume of 3.7 liters and a power of 300 hp was installed on the crossover, which was paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. Acura ZDX had a SH-AWD all-wheel drive transmission with an active rear differential, which allows you to transfer torque to each of the rear wheels independently of each other in accordance with driving conditions.
The company planned to sell only five thousand of these cars annually, even this modest plan was not destined to come true: in the best year of 2010, only 3.3 thousand copies were sold. Due to weak demand, in 2013 the production of the machine ceased.
