2019 Mazda CX-9 vs. 2019 Ford Explorer

When it comes to vehicles that can fit your entire family to get around South Windsor, the 2019 Mazda CX-9 and the 2019 Ford Explorer are compelling options. In comparison, though, the CX-9:

  • Comes with a standard turbocharged engine that generates 55 more lb-ft of torque while also achieving superior fuel economy
  • Provides many more advanced safety systems as standard, along with other amenities
  • Tows up to 1,500 more pounds

Performance, MPG and Towing

Even though the 2019 Mazda CX-9 comes with a smaller engine as standard, it still packs more power than the 2019 Ford Explorer – and it even boasts better fuel economy:

  • 2019 Mazda CX-9: The turbocharged 2.5L inline-four engine churns out 310 lb-ft of torque. You can expect an EPA-estimated 22 mpg city and 28 mpg highway**.
  • 2019 Ford Explorer: The 3.5L V6 doesn’t have a turbocharger, and it manages to make only 255 lb-ft of torque. The EPA estimates the Explorer will reach 17 mpg city and 24 mpg highway**.

The best part is, the 2019 Mazda CX-9 still tows more than the 2019 Ford Explorer. The CX-9 boasts a towing capacity of 3,500 pounds, as compared with the Explorer’s capacity of 2,000 pounds.
