The wait is finally over. Mazda has announced that it is now taking orders for the 2019 Mazda CX-5 Signature Diesel, which is powered by a 2.2L diesel engine.
“As Mazda continues our climb toward premium, we will offer more powertrain choices that premium customers expect,” said Jeffrey Guyton, the new president of MNAO. “I am happy to share that Mazda’s Skyactiv-D 2.2-liter diesel engine is joining the U.S. powertrain lineup with our debut model, the 2019 CX-5 Signature AWD with Skyactiv-D.”
The CX-5 Diesel’s 2.2L Skyactiv-D engine generates 168 horsepower and 290 lb-ft. of torque. The EPA estimates that it will get 27 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway with a combined rating of 28 mpg. The CX-5 Diesel comes standard with all-wheel drive.
The 2019 CX-5 Signature AWD with the Skyactiv-D 2.2 diesel engine is priced at $41,000, plus the destination fees. It’s available in four color options: Jet Black or premium paint colors; Snowflake White Pearl, Soul Red Crystal and Machine Gray Metallic.
