What’s more, we have Ocean Mazda and a fantastic team of Mazda experts who know just about everything about driving over stuff in a Mazda CX-5. They even went ahead and wrote this piece covering the Mazda CX-5’s ground clearance! So, if you’re looking to drive over things in the Doral, Miami, Hialeah, Kendall, and West Kendall, Florida, areas, then keep reading below!

MAZDA CX-5 Ground Clearance Doral FL Foxtrot, Foxtrot, You Have (Ground) Clearance to Land on Runway FUN!

Oh yeah! You’ll have a lot of fun driving over things in your Mazda CX-5. Little rocks? No problem. Big pothole ahead? Don’t worry about it. Stuck in traffic? No problem, just drive over the cars… we’re just kidding, you can’t do that in a Mazda CX-5. However, you can drive over quite a lot of things. The Mazda CX-5 has a minimum ground clearance of 7.5 inches, to be exact. To put that in perspective, that’s almost two-thirds of a ruler!!!

Not only that, but you’ll also be clearing these two-third rulers in style on top of a beautiful set of 17×7 aluminum alloy tires with Gray Metallic finish or an even more impressive set of 19×7 aluminum alloy tires with Black Metallic finish. So, while you’re out there making statements, you’ll be making statements!

What Kind of Engine Even Powers an SUV This Good?

Does it run on angel tears? Nuclear energy? What’s going on here? Easy now. While Mazda may be working on the angel-tear-fueled vehicles as we speak, until that day, you’ll be in more than capable hands with the two distinct engine options offered by the Mazda CX-5. The first is the Skyactiv®-G 2.5L engine, which puts out 187 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque.

The second is the Skyactiv®-G 2.5L with Dynamic Pressure Turbo that puts out even more impressive numbers. How impressive? Well, with this powertrain, you’ll get 227 horsepower and 320 lb-ft of torque. That’s how impressive. More than enough to power you over whatever 7.5-inch-high obstacles you find!
