Model Preview

Recently, Mazda made the announcement that it was expanding its SUV lineup with the all-new Mazda CX-90. It's not the only new SUV the automaker is releasing, as the CX-90 was announced with four other vehicles. The CX-50 is in the Small Product group, and the CX-60, CX-70, CX-80, and CX-90 are in the Large Product group. This is to give customers a range of SUVs that have a variety of choices in both driving experience and environmental performance. Only the CX-50, CX-70, and CX-90 are being released to America.

Of all the new vehicles Mazda is announcing, the CX-90 is the largest. It was made with North American preferences in mind, giving it a big road presence with three-row configuration seating and a wide-body style. As SUVs that also have a good off-road performance are well-loved in the U.S., perhaps this is something we might see from this vehicle. For more specific details about features such as upholstery, screen size, and the architecture of the car, we will have to wait for Mazda to unveil them.

Many of the new, larger models will have options of electrified powertrains for each country’s electrification roadmap. In North America, the turbo-charged straight-six gas engine and the plug-in hybrid models will both be offered as they give a much-desired, high-power performance while meeting environmental regulations.

With Mazda’s promise to give the newer versions of the CX-5 the newest safety and tech features, it stands to reason that we could expect the same from the CX-90. No improvements or upgrades have been confirmed as of yet, but we’re hopeful for what could be in store for this SUV.

Pricing & Release Date

The CX-90, and the rest of the vehicles being announced with it, are set to be released over a span of two years between 2022 and 2023. We know that the CX-50 will begin production in January of next year, but no exact release date has been given for any of the other models, including the CX-90.

As the largest of the new models being released, the CX-90 is expected to have a higher price tag as well. While we don’t have an exact amount, it's likely to be more expensive than the current CX-9, which ranges from $35,060 to $47,705.

Key competitors for the CX-90 may include the Kia Telluride, Ford Expedition, Toyota Highlander, Honda Pilot, and the Chevrolet Traverse.

Come back for updates as they are released to us.
