    CX-60 timing and transmission details

    It looks like the 4cyl plug-in hybrid is coming first with the gas Skyactiv-x not arriving until 2023. I hope the CX-90 inline-6 is also not delayed. There are also some interesting comments regarding the 8-speed Auto...

    Mazda CX-50 announced

    At least this has been around in Japan and Europe for close to 10 years with Mazda so bugs have been worked out. I just don’t think the gas savings are worth it.

    I don’t think this has been mentioned previously but there is an iStop OFF button to the left of the steering wheel. This iStop feature is a first for the US and will likely come to other Mazda vehicles next year.

    I don’t think that is chrome. That looks like the white protective tape that goes on new vehicles. I just saw that same tape on the pillar of a CX-3 at a dealer I drove by today.

    2022 CX-9 details (Last year for CX-9)

    Not much has changed. Mazda already announced that the CX-9 will be replaced by the CX-90 next year, so this is the last model year for the CX-9. https://insidemazda.mazdausa.com/press-release/2022-mazda-cx-9-pricing-and-packaging/

    2022 CX-5?

    In Canada it looks like pricing drops $1k for the now standard AWD. The AWD 2022 GX is only $500 more than the FWD 2021.5 GX. I guess there were cost efficiencies by dropping FWD.

    CX-60 Video shoot

    Starting at 1:30 in this video they capture the new CX-60 which looks very similar to the CX-5. You can see "CX-60" just below the license plate. Keep in the mind that the CX-70/CX-90 for the US market will be wider. This video shoot would suggest the CX-60 details could be coming very soon.

    I appreciate my CX-5 more after seeing the cost cutting on the CX-50

    The space savings from the rear suspension may have help with the ground clearance. It certainly help with more storage room.
