The new Mazda CX-90 SUV will get a 340bhp straight-six turbo
Big American SUV will feature Mazda's most powerful ever combustion engine
News from across the pond, and confirmation that the all-new Mazda CX-90 will feature a 3.3-litre straight-six turbo petrol engine. A highly anticipated turbo petrol engine, not least because the thing is new and it comes with record-breaking power. At least, for Mazda.
That straight-six has been developed to deliver 340bhp and 369 lb ft of torque, and Mazda US says the new engine - developed specifically for its 'large platform' cars - will give the incoming CX-90 "an engaging driving experience" and a nice exhaust note. Sounds rather special.
Sporting the 'Kinematic Posture Control' (KPC) - first seen on the Mazda MX-5 - as standard and rear-biased all-wheel-drive, Mazda reckons this three-row SUV will offer the company's "signature driving dynamics". For practicality and CO2 emissions regs compliance, the new CX-90 also has a mild-hybrid system. It’ll be available as a plug-in hybrid or pure petrol engine.
The big reveal is due on 31 January when we should also learn if and when the new Mazda CX-90 is set to hit the UK market.
