Mazda CX-90 Pricing Revealed: Premium is As Premium Does
The new Mazda CX-90 is coming in spring with three new powertrains, a shockingly nice interior, and the right features to make “Ze German” luxury SUVs quake in their opulent, leather-clad interiors. Mazda recently announced pricing for the vehicle, which starts in mainstream territory and extends dangerously close to the premium-brand MSRPs of the vehicles it’s chasing.
The base CX-90 3.3 Turbo Select starts at $39,595. Its turbocharged 3.3-liter inline-six and mild-hybrid system produce a combined 280 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque on premium fuel – an odd Mazda quirk that we’ve seen in many of its other turbocharged models. Five trims come with the entry-level powertrain, topping out with the $52,950 3.3 Turbo Premium Plus.
Stepping up to the plug-in hybrid powertrain brings the starting price to $47,445, and Mazda offers three trims with the PHEV configuration. The system uses a 2.5-liter four-cylinder and an electric motor with a combined output of 323 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque.
At the top end of the CX-90 lineup, the Turbo S models get a 3.3-liter turbo-six with 340 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. Pricing ranges from $51,750 to $59,950 for models with this powertrain. All CX-90s come with a new eight-speed automatic transmission.
Mazda doesn’t typically offer a ton of added-cost options, but its famous Takuminuri paint technology is available for the new SUV for a few extra bucks. Artisan Red, Rhodium White, Soul Red Crystal Metallic, and Machine Gray Metallic are available for $595, and bring insanely deep, eye-catching hues to the family hauler.

- ToolGuy Simple question from a simple guy: When the wet solenoid gets sparky, what burns? I ain't no pyromaniac, but I do start my share of fires (intentionally), and this doesn't seem like it would be a very impressive combustion event.
