On October 7, 2021, Mazda announced that it will launch five new SUVs between 2022 and 2023. One of the future high-riding models will be a Mazda CX-90. Here’s what all we know about it so far:

Design & Features

The Mazda CX-90 will be the successor to the CX-9, which Mazda has sold for two generations since 2006. Mazda could give it a more aggressive design than its predecessor with core elements looking similar to the CX-60, which it unveiled in March 2022. Expect a tough yet dignified exterior that heeds to the Japanese notion that less is more.

Inside, the CX-90 should feature a conventional design and modern electronics such as a fully digital instrument cluster, head-up display, and a wide touchscreen infotainment system. One of the main highlights here could be the Mazda Driver Personalization System which identifies the driver using a face recognition system and automatically adjusts the surroundings as per their physique and personal preferences.

Specifications

The Mazda CX-90 will reportedly share the company’s all-new front-engine, rear-wheel drive platform with the CX-60, the brand’s first model available with a plug-in hybrid system. It will be a wide-body midsize SUV with three rows of seats developed primarily for North American markets.

Mazda may offer two CX-90 hybrid variants: mild-hybrid and plug-in hybrid. The mild-hybrid variant could employ an all-new 3.0L Skyactiv-X turbocharged straight-six gas engine, an electric motor (ISG), and a 48-volt battery pack.

The plug-in hybrid variant may have a smaller, 2.5-liter eSkyactiv naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine, but a punchier electric motor, and a 355-volt lithium-ion battery pack. In addition to the operating voltage, the energy storage capacity of this battery pack could be much higher, probably 17.8 kWh. The gas engine and electric motor together may deliver more than 325 horsepower. The EPA-est. pure electric range of the CX-90 PHEV could be somewhere between 25 and 30 miles.

Price & Release Date

Mazda plans to start manufacturing the CX-90 units intended for sales in North America by the end of FY2023 (April 2022 – March 2023). Based on the scheduled production timeline, we expect the Mazda CX-90 to go on sale in the U.S. in early 2023. Prices could start somewhere in the USD 37,000-40,000 range.
