2016 Mazda CX-9 Snow

The 2016 Mazda CX-9 has been equipped with a sophisticated powertrain, so Manteca and Stockton drivers can except leading performance and mpg figures. An elegantly sculpted SUV with room for the entire family and a whole range of comfort and convenience features, the Mazda CX-9 has been designed to the highest standards from the engine outwards.


2016 Mazda CX-9 drivingSKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY engines are a defining part of what makes Mazda vehicles such a cut above the competition. Traditional combustion engines harness only around 30% of the energy their fuel contains, but Mazda has engineered higher compression ratios to squeeze more energy out of every drop of fuel. This results in a marked rise in efficiency with no subsequent drop in performance.

The 2016 Mazda CX-9 debuts an all-new engine: the SKYACTIV®-G 2.5L Dynamic Pressure Turbo four-cylinder. It features a new kind of turbocharger to deliver power as soon as you hit the gas.

Lanthrop and Turlock drivers will be able to look forward to making:

  • Up to 227 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque for an exhilarating drive.
  • Up to 22 mpg in the city and 28 on the highway with FWD or 21 mpg city and 27 mpg highway with AWD.

Predictive i-ACTIV AWD®

2017 Mazda CX-9 rearEquipping All-Wheel Drive (AWD) can give you complete peace of mind. Whether you’re coasting down a steep hill, making a sharp turn, or navigating adverse weather conditions, torque will be distributed intelligently to all four wheels in order to keep the driver in complete control of their vehicle.

The 2016 Mazda CX-9 has taken AWD technology even further. Its available Predictive i-ACTIV AWD® system is able to employ more than two dozen advanced sensors to take into account everything from exterior temperature to braking pattern, then intelligently gauge when AWD traction might be needed. It will preemptively optimize torque distribution to help you remain in control.


SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY covers more than the 2016 Mazda CX-9’s engines. The platform around which the Mazda CX-9 is based also benefits from advances not seen in other three-row SUVs.

A state-of-the-art chassis is able to unite low-speed agility with high-speed stability, a combination that would have seemed impossible just a few short years ago. With ultra-high tensile-strength steel used in critical areas across the framework, the entire chassis is lighter, stiffer, and stronger than ever before.
