Unlike other Japanese rivals, it has a straight-six engine.
Pricing for the 2024 Mazda CX-90 has been revealed, and as we expected, it is now the most expensive Mazda model on sale. But not by as much as you'd think. Mazda will offer the CX-90 in three powertrains, the 3.3 Turbo, 3.3 Turbo S, and CX-90 PHEV with 11 total packages.
Pricing for the CX-90 3.3 Turbo Select starts at $39,595 (not including $1,375 for destination and handling), just $845 more than the similarly-sized (and less powerful) CX-9, which received a price bump this year. Honestly, we can't imagine the CX-9 will stick around in the lineup much longer.
The base Turbo includes Mazda's new 3.3-liter turbocharged inline-six engine tuned to produce 280 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque on regular fuel. This engine gets an EPA-estimated 24/28/25 mpg city/highway/combined. The 3.3 Turbo is also available in Preferred trim for $43,445, Preferred Plus for $45,900, Turbo Premium for $48,900, and Turbo Premium Plus for $52,950.
The CX-90 PHEV is Mazda's first plug-in hybrid model in the US. It uses a 2.5-liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine that combines with an electric motor to produce 323 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque on premium fuel. No fuel economy or range information was provided for this model, but we do have full pricing.
The CX-90 PHEV Preferred starts at $47,445, the Premium costs $52,900, and the Premium Plus is $56,950. In other words, upgrading to the PHEV costs $4,000 for more power and better fuel efficiency.
At the top of the range sits the CX-90 3.3 Turbo S at $51,750. This version uses the same inline-six engine, but with a higher state of tune to deliver 340 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque using premium fuel. Despite the substantial power bump, fuel economy only takes a slight hit at 23/28/25 mpg city/highway/combined. Upgrading to the 3.3 Turbo S Premium costs $56,450 and the Premium Plus is $59,950.
With one of the $595 premium paint colors (Artisan Red, Rhodium White, Soul Red Crystal Metallic, and Machine Gray Metallic), a fully-loaded CX-90 can exceed $60,000 before destination. This is easily the most expensive Mazda ever sold in the US, meaning it will compete against luxury players like the Acura MDX and Infiniti QX60.
