Default Mazda Announces Diesel-Powered 2014 Mazda6 Wagon



Quote:
Mazda announced that the all-new 2014 Mazda6 wagon will be unveiled later this month at the Paris Auto Show. Both the new sport wagon and its sedan counterpart will be powered by the 2.2-Liter Skyactiv-D clean diesel engine.

The Skyactiv-D clean diesel engine is currently available in the Japanese market CX-5 mid-sized crossover SUV and is the only diesel-powered engine able to meet the strict Japanese emissions standards without use of a urea after-treatment system to reduce nitrogen oxide emissions. The 2.2-liter I-4 develops 173 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque, returning 44 mpg (5.34 l/100km) in the Japanese JC08 test cycle when mated to Mazda’s Skydrive automatic transmission.

The 2014 Mazda6 sedan was unveiled last month in Moscow and both models are expected to go on sale in the U.S. in early 2013. Mazda confirmed at the 2012 North American International Auto Show in January that it plans to bring a diesel-powered passenger car to the U.S. but has not yet announced which model will get the Skyactiv-D diesel engine first.

I hope their High pressure fuel pump on these diesel is better than VW's.. or else it's a $10k time bomb.

I'm hesitant to jump for joy just yet...this is the first report saying that Mazda is bringing the wagon to the U.S., every other report has stated the opposite. If the wagon is offered here though, with a diesel and a six-speed...hubba hubba!

If it's true, hopefully this would prompt Subaru into some action with the Boxer Diesel. Subaru is a bit bigger than Mazda here in the U.S. If Mazda can show a demand, hopefully we can get one.

This article has the same old line that a diesel Mazda will eventually make it to these shores. Which model and when is still up in the air completely, just as it has been for the last 4 or so years as this rumor has percolated.

Nothing to see here, move along.

According to C&D, a Mazda spokesman indicated a confirmed diesel vehicle here in 2013. I'm assuming this will be the CX-5.

I bet if I dug around I could find sources claiming a diesel Mazda (and Subaru!) on sale here in 2009.

It isn't. In those particular VW CR systems, the entire system becomes contaminated with metal particles if the HPFP fails, leading to the whole system having to be replaced. The newer design isolates the HPFP so that any potential failure doesn't take the rest of the fuel system with it. They have also stopped using the faulty Bosch HPFP's that were seemingly prone to failure.

There's no telling what type of design Mazda's CR system has, but there's no reason to think they'll have the same issues.

Ok, I'm confused. Diesel or not, are we getting the wagon variant at all? I thought we were only getting the sedan. Given that the CX-5 seems to be a very strong product, I doubt that they will bring the wagon, but I'd be happy to be wrong on this.

I suppose you're right. I said I'd watch this space, not necessarily base any car-buying activity on it.

This. Every other report you can find that mentions the destiny of the 6 wagon in the U.S. market quotes Mazda officials as saying there are no plans for it at all. No gas or diesel, no wagon at all.

As others have stated, it is highly likely that the only diesels will be the CX-5 and/or maybe the 3.

My own personal opinion is OH COME ON MAZDA BRING THE FREAKING WAGON OVER

If I was 30 in 2005, I would've bought one. Since I was 26 and childless, I got a wrx wagon instead.

Who needed to? Subaru still made a Legacy GT wagon.

Who here was as concerned about fuel economy in 2005 as they are now?

I actually used to have a 2004 Mazda 6 Wagon!

I hated it and traded it in for a 2006 WRX Wagon

A gooseman thread. Feelin' old now.

Since I've never owned one, what is the appeal of a front drive diesel other than fuel economy?
