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.

    Bring back your four-year warranty, Mazda. You're the guys who claim you are playing in the luxo league.

    Would prefer the I6 sans a turbo charger and sans an electric motor.

    Less metal and less electrons buzzing about which can go on the fritz.

    Less is more....🚗🚗🚗

  • Kwik_Shift A nice stretch of fairly remote road that would be great for test driving a car's potential, rally style, is Flinton Road off of Highway 41 in Ontario. Twists/turns/dips/rises. Just hope a deer doesn't jump out at you. Also Highway 60 through Algonquin Provincial Park in Ontario. Great scenery with lots of hills.
  • Saeed Hello, I need a series of other accessories from Lincoln. Do you have front window, front and rear lights, etc. from the 1972 and 1976 models

  • Zerocred So many great drives:Dalton Hwy from Fairbanks to the Arctic Circle.Alaska Marine Highway from Bellingham WA to Skagway AK. it was a multi-day ferry ride so I didn’t actually drive it, but I did take my truck.Icefields Parkway from Jasper AB to Lake Louise AB, CA.I-70 and Hwy 50 from Denver to Sacramento.Hwy 395 on the east side of the Sierras.
  • Aidian Holder I'm not interested in buying anything from a company that deliberately targets all their production in crappy union-busting states. Ford decided to build their EV manufaturing in Tennessee. The company built it there because of an anti-union legal environment. I won't buy another Ford because of that. I've owned four Fords to date -- three of them pickups. I'm shopping for a new one. It won't be a Ford Lightning. If you care about your fellow workers, you won't buy one either.
