    Mazda finally comfirms that a diesel engine will be arriving in early 2013. Mazda spokesman, Jeremy Barnes told Car & Driver that “It’ll be here between 15 and 18 months behind the launch of the Skyactiv-G gasoline engine in the Mazda 3.” The Mazda3 with the Skyactiv-G engine launched last October, so expect the diesel engine sometime between January and April of 2013.

    The vehicle that will get the diesel engine hasn't been revealed, but rumors point to the CX-5, followed by the 6 and 3.

    Cool! Another believer in the viability of diesels in the US to meet the oppressive new mileage standards. Maybe we can kill the electric car yet! :)

    Cool...I can't recall if Mazda sold diesels in the US in the '80s or only through Ford products. My diesel Escort had a Mazda 2.0 diesel. Great little engine...
