New Mazda 2023 Mazda CX-50 for Sale in Springfield, MA
Trim Levels and Powertrains
The 2023 Mazda CX-50 is offered in nine trim levels: 2.5 S, 2.5 S Select, 2.5 S Preferred, 2.5 S Preferred Plus, 2.5 S Premium, 2.5 S Premium Plus, 2.5 Turbo, 2.5 Turbo Premium, and 2.5 Turbo Premium Plus (the 2.5 S Preferred and 2.5 S Preferred Plus will be available later in 2022). A Meridian Edition is coming with late availability, too, with all-terrain tires, side rocker and headlight garnishes, exclusive hood graphics, and blacked-out wheels.
Most trims get a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine making 187 hp and 186 lb.-ft. of torque. All trims with the Turbo designation have a turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder that produces 227 hp and 310 lb.-ft. of torque with regular fuel and 256 hp and 320 lb.-ft. of torque with premium. A six-speed automatic transmission with an engaging manual shift mode and all-wheel drive completes both powertrains. The towing capacity for the non-turbo versions caps at 2,000 pounds, while the turbos can pull as much as 3,500 lb. As far as fuel economy, the non-turbo 2023 Mazda CX-50s return an EPA-estimated 24 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway, which dips an increment to 23 city/29 highway for the turbos.
