The benefits of driving a diesel engine are widely known at this point: better fuel efficiency, greater power delivery, and lower emissions. To find out more about the diesel engine that will be offered with the new Mazda6 for 2014, watch this video clip highlighting its debut at the 2012 L.A. Auto Show.
The Mazda SKYACTIV® diesel engine that comes with the Mazda6 should make roughly 165 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque. With this much torque available at a low RPM range, the diesel-powered Mazda6 will provide outstanding acceleration.
Although diesel-powered Mazda6 sedans are not yet available, you can take a spin in a gasoline-powered Mazda6 today at Brown’s Alexandria Mazda. The 2014 Mazda6 gasoline models will be available in early 2013 and the diesel model will arrive a little later.
