2014 Mazda6

Mazda will to drop the V6 engine options from its all-new 2014 Mazda6 family sedan. Instead, the Japanese automaker has been working hard on its Skyactiv-D diesel, which uses turbocharging to make it both a solid performer, and fuel-efficient.

This Skyactiv-D engine has quite a few features that make it stand out. It has the highest red-line of any diesel on the market, and features the lowest compression, and doesn’t require an expensive emissions after-treatment system.

While the Skyactiv-D’s 165-hp isn’t that impressive, Mazda is also claiming 340 lb-ft of torque at just 2000 rpm.

Better yet, our very own editor Colum Wood, notorious to hating diesels, quite enjoyed the powerplant when tested in a prototype.

Expect the new Mazda6 later this year, using styling cues from the Mazda Takeri Concept.

    It’s good to see the Impreza won’t just be a four-wheel drive Camry again. They were just starting to lose their touch, styling-wise.

    Compaq computers CEO and team did something in the 90′s.  The team used a Saturn, small gas engine which turned on the gizmo, 1000/gal.  Sound familiar ??  what ever happened to it.
