    Rumorpile: Mazda's Long-Awaited Diesel Is Coming Next Year


    • The never ending Mazda diesel for the U.S. story may be closing

    We have been reporting on the saga that is Mazda's SkyActiv-D for the U.S. since the company announced it back in 2012. But it seems there is a closing to this long story.

    The Nikkei Asian Review has learned from sources that Mazda will be launching the diesel option for the U.S. next year. Sources explained that the company had finally cleared environmental regulations in the U.S. As we have reported previously, Mazda was having issues with their engines not making the power they wanted when they met regulations. It seems odd that Mazda is still going forward with their diesel plans in light of the Volkswagen diesel emission scandal. But the company, like GM believes there is still a market for it.

    The sources go on to say that Mazda will announce their diesel plans this week at the LA Auto Show. Considering that the company will be unveiling a new CX-5 at the show, we wouldn't be surprised if this is the first model to get it. This will be followed up by the Mazda6.

    Probably TOO long-awaited.

    In the politics thread we discussed the end of the word...Mazda bringing over its diesels and Drew finally marrying Albert would be two omens that we are indeed in the last days...
