The Mazda CX-9 is a crossover SUV built alongside the smaller Mazda CX-7. It offers third-row seating, replacing the Mazda MPV for North America. The CX-9 was unveiled on April 13, 2006 at the New York International Auto Show. It is manufactured at Mazda's Hiroshima Plant#U1 plant in Hiroshima Prefecture, Japan and will go on sale in early 2007. The CX-9 competes with the redesigned Toyota Highlander and Nissan Murano, the new Hyundai Veracruz and the Honda Pilot, as well as GM's Saturn Outlook, GMC Acadia and Buick Enclave. The CX-9 went on sale in March 2007.

The CX-9 is built on the stretched Ford CD3 platform used by the Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX. Although it is similar in appearance to the smaller Mazda CX-7, the CX-9 will share little of that vehicle's platform components. It is a front-wheel drive vehicle with an optional all-wheel drive system.

The CX-9 is the first Mazda to use the 3.5L Ford Cyclone engine V6, called the "MZI" in Mazda guise. Mazda claims that the MZI will generate "more than 250 horsepower", and Ford has announced that the same engine will produce 265 hp (198 kW) and 250 ft·lbf (339 N·m) in the Edge. The CX-9 will also use an Aisin sourced 6-speed automatic transmission with a console-mounted shifter in a complex Mercedes-Benz-like gate.
