2022 Mazda CX-50 debuts

Mazda just unveiled the newest member of its growing family of SUVs. Meet the new 2022 Mazda CX-50, with a focus on off-road performance.

The CX-50 is visually and, presumably, physically taller than the CX-5 — Mazda hasn’t released detailed specs and dimensions, yet. Mazda tells us that the CX-50’s low roofline and wide-opening rear door grant easy access to the roof racks, despite the increased ground clearance.

The CX-50 will be offered with both naturally aspirated and turbocharged versions of the automaker’s Skyactiv-G 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with a six-speed automatic transmission and standard all-wheel drive. Post-launch, electrified powertrain options will join the lineup, including a traditional hybrid model, but details regarding specs and timing of that configuration have not yet been announced.
