It is well-known that the Japanese carmaker Mazda puts emphasis on technology when equipping its models; in fact it has always done that, particularly under the hood, where it has created one of the most durable engine lineup – the SKYACTIV range.
The all-new 2018 Mazda6 recently arriving in the United States is also highlighted by a high-performance engine in the shape of the SKYACTIV-G 2.5T, which is thoroughly described in the official video presentation below.
In the United States the 2018 Mazda6 is not expensive. It costs just $23,000 in the Sport variant, however it comes with a wide range of high-end characteristics and features, which make it a worthy adversary against top notch models from Mercedes-Benz, Audi or BMW.
The array of features comprise “electronic parking brake, cloth seats, a six-way manual driver’s seat with lumbar support, dual-zone climate control, remote keyless entry, push-button start, a 60/40 split-folding rear seat, cruise control, 17-inch alloy wheels, a six-speaker audio system, Bluetooth phone and audio pairing, MAZDA CONNECT infotainment system with and Commander control knob and touchscreen control, rearview camera, a new eight-inch display screen, Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert.”
The higher-level variants feature more goodies like Lane-Keep Assist, adaptive Mazda Radar Control, Lane- Departure Warning, or Smart Brake Support.
As for the engine under the hood, the 2.5T-liter SKYACTIV-G is considered a highly-advanced engine, coming with standard 2-cylinder deactivation which makes it more efficient during cruising conditions.
This means that the whole output is set at 187 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque, being sent to the wheels via a six-speed manual transmission in standard form. There is also the SKYACTIV-DRIVE six-speed automatic transmission available on the higher variants.
