2017 Mazda CX-5: We Cannot Rule Out CX-9 Turbocharged

By  | 

Fans of Mazda are hoping that the 2.5 litre turbocharged four SkyActiv G engine seen in the Mazda CX-9 may be coming to the Mazda 3 and the 6 sedans, however this isn’t all that likely but it cannot be ruled out.

Both the vehicles already offer a 2.5 litre naturally aspirated engine that offers up 184 horses along with 185 torque.

When it comes to the Mazda 3 it is used in the higher trims, while there isn’t any other choice of engine on the Mazda 6. This may be one of the main reasons why the SkyActiv D diesel may be considered for the US version of the mid-size sedan.

If the 2.5T engine offering 250 horses is shared with the CX-9 then it would likely be shared with performance models, which are the Mazda 3 and the Mazda 6.

MazdaSpeed could happen in a few years if the comments of the CEO are anything to go by. This would mean that the turbo-four block could be ruled out for the Mazda 3 along with the Mazda 6.

People are hoping that the next generation of the Mazda CX-5 might be getting treated to the engine as at the moment it has the 2.5 litre, this could be changed for the engine of the CX-9.

The CX-5 could end up being the only one to have the SkyActiv G engine in the end, as the Mazda CX-3 cannot accommodate it as its built around the Mazda 2 platform.
