Yesterday Mazda officially announced that the Mazda CX-5 Diesel is on its way and it’s already started taking orders for it. Now Mazda has also confirmed that the Mazda6 Diesel is coming too.

Mazda6 Skyactiv-D

Mazda didn’t make any mentions of it at the New York Auto Show, but it quietly updated its website with a teaser of the Mazda6 Skyactiv-D. Mazda hasn’t confirmed, what diesel engine the Mazda6 will get, but it’s pretty obvious that it is getting the same 2.2L diesel engine as the CX-5 crossover.

The 2.2L diesel engine generates 168 horsepower and 290 lb-ft. of torque in the CX-5. The CX-5 Diesel has a combined rating of 28 mpg, which is a little disappointing, but the Mazda6 Diesel will likely be a bit more fuel efficient.

The diesel engine will likely be offered in the top Signature trim level, just like in the CX-5.

What’s even more exciting is the rumored all-wheel drive Mazda6, which is also rumored to be coming soon.

It’s expected that the Mazda6 will get the diesel engine and likely an all-wheel drive option for the 2020 model year.
