Mazda CX-50 Revealed, A tough Off-Roader

Author: |

The all-new Mazda CX-50 for 2023 was unveiled. With a robust appearance, a nice interior, and two engine options, the CX-50 will be available next year. Next to the similar-sized CX-5, the CX-50 joins the brand's increasing SUV lineup. The Japanese brand's effort at a rough off-roader is the rugged-looking off-roader.

The CX-50 will be available in dealer showrooms next year as the first car made in the United States at the combined Mazda Toyota Manufacturing plant in Huntsville, Alabama.

A normally aspirated 2.5-liter four-cylinder powers the standard CX-50, although a turbocharged 2.5-liter is also available.

The CX-5's naturally aspirated Skyactiv-G 2.5-liter engine generates 187 horsepower and 252 Nm of torque. Power estimates will be released at a later date. The Skyactiv-G 2.5 Turbo turbocharged engine generates 250 horsepower and 434 Nm of torque. Soon after the model's introduction, the company pledges to provide more hybrid alternatives.

Both engines are available with a six-speed automated gearbox and all-wheel drive.

Users may modify the driving mode choice option on the standard i-Activ all-wheel-drive system based on road conditions. Mazda offers certain driving modes such as Normal, Sport, and Off-Road, but also claims that the Mi-Drive switch may be used for towing and other purposes.

The wheel arches and fascias are coated in black plastic, and there are high-strength roof rails up high for increased adjustability. On either side of the bumper, bigger vents replace the heavier black accents on the grille. The CX-50 also receives higher riding height, strengthened B-pillars, high-strength roof rails, and other features to enable it carry even more cargo on top.

The car will also be intended to fit all of the stuff you could possible need for a weekend in the woods on the inside, though Mazda hasn't divulged any specific specs.

The driver's axis has been engineered to unfold symmetrically in the cockpit. This, according to the business, fosters a sense of participation and connection.

Despite the fact that the CX-50 is made at the same Alabama facility as Toyota's Corolla Cross, Mazda claims that the vehicles produced on its side are distinct from those produced on Toyota's.

Mazda has yet to reveal pricing for the CX-50, but manufacturing of the ruggedized crossover will begin in early 2022, with the car expected to go on sale later that year.
