2018 Mazda 6 May Get Engine Change. With its success, it is possible for the Japanese automaker to make the newer version of its popular cars. The new 2018 Mazda 6 is rumored to get a change on its powertrain. Buyers shouldn’t expect something spectacular as it is for the next model of the current release. There are news and development that hint the powertrain change. Here is the update.
2018 Mazda 6 Specifications
Features, Exterior, and the Interior
As it happens within a year from the latest predecessor, we should see the same features outside and inside in general. Still focusing on its dynamic capability, G-Vectoring Control will be available as standard. The 2018 Mazda 6 sedan will also get the new noise insulation elements including insulation materials indoors, headliner, rear console, underbody, tighter between panels tolerance, thicker glass, and improved door seals.
Meanwhile, its cabin gets the full-color head up display in maybe larger dimension, contrasting piping on its trimming with new shades to offer, and driving aid system like traffic sign recognition system, and lane keeps and blind spot warning system.
The 2018 Mazda 6 Grand Touring trim will still be the top-range level. Meanwhile, Touring package should come as standard in few selected trims, and it still includes satellite radio, moonroof, and Bose sound system. More exterior finish options should be available too.
Powertrain, Engine – 2018 Mazda 6
The biggest issue should happen to the engine. Even though the scandal on Volkswagen’s diesel engine isn’t solved yet, Mazda insists on adding the diesel engine on its lineup for US market. Even though it is hard enough to beat the legal standard for it, diesel unit will hit the turbo-four unit. It means there will be two possible engines in the lineup.

It includes turbocharged, the four-cylinder 2.5 liters of SkyActiv-G engine that produces 184 hp of power output as well as 185 lb-ft of torque performance, and 2.2 liters of the SkyActiv-D engine with probably the same power output and torque performance. The engine can be paired with either six-speed manual or auto transmission depending on the trim.
2018 Mazda 6 Price and Release Date
Pricing on the new Mazda6 model should be at the same rate even though few trims with Touring package will be more expensive. This car should hit dealerships in late 2017 if not in the first quarter of 2018. So the new model doesn’t interrupt its’ predecessor sale.
Of course, the entire information in this article is not the stable valid yet. This is speculation on what may come in the upcoming version. If powertrain change happens to be factual, US market may finally get the diesel version of 2018 Mazda 6.
