The LA Auto Show doesn't open to media until November 17, but as the show quickly approaches, automakers are keen to start sending out teasers for their big reveals. The latest of those belongs to Mazda, which announced that it will unveil an all-new CX-9 crossover at its press conference.
The, a three-row crossover, is Mazda's largest offering. The current model is an extension of the first generation that started in the 2007 model year. A six-cylinder engine from Ford powers it, and its most recent visual refresh took place in 2013. It won the North American Truck of the Year award back in 2008.
Mazda is mum on any details, but the statement included with the teaser image mentioned that the brand is moving the CX-9 in a more premium direction, one that "befits a three-row midsize crossover." The teaser image above suggests that many of the CX-9's new styling cues will come straight from thethat the automaker unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.
Mazda's LA Auto Show press conference will take place at 1:35 p.m. local time on Wednesday, November 18.
