Among the many announcements piling up before next week’s New York Auto Show, Mazda dropped a subtle bomb. 

Debuting at the Mazda booth, we will see the Takeri concept (pictured above) in for the first time on US soil. While the sedan concept itself is nothing new (first unveiled at the Tokyo Motor Show), the drivetrain information is hugely important. Aside from being the third concept car to feature Kodo (Soul of Motion) design style, it will be the second car to fully embrace SkyActiv technology.

What’s more, that will include the diesel SkyActiv-D engine we drove in a prototype Mazda6 before the 2012 Mazda3 we tested recently.

While there isn’t much detail in the release about the Takeri, the fact that Mazda is announcing a diesel sedan hints strongly that there will be a SkyActiv-D Mazda6 coming soon.
