2024 Mazda CX-90: Powertrains, Trim Levels, Seating Configurations, Pricing & More

The 2024 Mazda CX-90 debuted in early 2023 as the Japanese automaker’s flagship three-row SUV. We’re still not convinced by the CX-90’s styling cues, but it rides on an all-new, rear-biased platform with a stretched wheelbase to deliver more room while reputedly remaining a blast to drive (as all Mazdas usually are).

Mazda has announced the MSRP figures for the CX-90 seven-seat crossover. It will arrive in the spring of 2023 in no less than 11 trim models.

Mazda CX-90 Powertrain

The CX-90 3.3 Turbo has a 3.3-liter turbocharged inline-six gas engine and a 48-volt M-Hybrid boost system (the “M” stands for Mild Hybrid). It pumps out 280 horsepower and 332 lb-ft. of torque while returning an EPA-estimated 24 city, 28 highway, and 25 combined.

Meanwhile, the CX-90 3.3 Turbo S has a highly-tuned 3.3-liter turbocharged inline-six and M-Hybrid boost. As a result, Mazda claims up to 340 horsepower and 369 lb-ft. of torque on a steady diet of premium fuel. The CX-90 3.3 Turbo S returns 23 in the city, 28 on the highway, and 25 combined.

The CX-90 PHEV has a naturally aspirated 2.5-liter four-cylinder gas engine, a 68 kW electric motor, and a 17.8 kWh battery pack. Together, the system produces 323 horsepower and 369 lb-ft. of torque on premium fuel.

According to Mazda, the 2024 CX-90 PHEV has an all-electric range of 26 miles. The total combustion and electric range is 490 miles.

All CX-90s have an eight-speed automatic and i-Activ all-wheel drive. Helping the fun-to-drive cause is the automaker’s Kinematic Posture Control system (software that eliminates body lift through corners, first seen in the MX-5 Miata) and Intelligent Drive Select driving modes.
