Mazda has been working hard to redefine its vehicles through its new Skyactiv technologies that aim to improve efficiency and we are here now to focus on the oil-burning side of this game. To be more precise, the new Mazda6 Diesel will be laucnhed in the US late next year.
An “anonymous tipster” told AutoGuide that an all-new vehicle has been shown to dealers in the Chicago area, with the story being linked to the next-generation Mazda6 SkyActiv-D. As we previously reported, the car is expected to be powered by a 2.2-liter engine delivering at least 150 hp and 380 Nm (280 lb-ft) of torque. As for the gasoline version of the next Mazda6, this will become available in March 2013.

In addition to that, it seems that the next generation of the CX-9 will borrow its 3.7-liter V6 unit from the current model, but will be underpinned by an all-new Skyactiv platform that will allow it to shed a considerable amount of weight.
