  1. Mazda News: Mazda Updates the 6 With A Turbo Engine Option

    i don't have complaints about it, your comment was about a downsized turbo engine to keep CAFE up. i was giving an example of one, but i don't know how that would affect their CAFE rating. we shall see what the upgrades to the 2.5L engine do for power and economy. i think the rumor is up about 10HP, making it 194. The big question is if they've done much else to the powertrain...aka upgraded to an 8speed.
  2. Mazda News: Mazda Updates the 6 With A Turbo Engine Option

    the 2.0L is the base around the world... if it makes nearly the same ~150HP, a turbo 1.5L should have 150hp based on the 250 the 2.5L T has. but, Mazda prefers to stay away from turbos because of it's driving characteristics.

    indeed.... then let me drive it. did you test the sport, T or the GT? the '15's 19" tires were a sore spot for lots of people. is there anything wrong with an analog tach and speedo? other than looking like it should be calibrated sometimes, i don't think so. I've not driven a digital dash car yet, but i like the simplicity of analog. i guess being able to customize a digital dash to take away some issues with the HUD, if it's there or not, would be good....
  4. i used to drive a G-Body wagon....
  5. Sales: Sales Figure Ticker: October 2017

    is it surprising to me that chrysler sells as many as they do... being only 2 vehicle models...?
  6. Nissan News: Nissan is Non-Commital on the Z Coupe

    the next evolution is obviously a 390Z. 240-> 260-> 280 (then 80's/90's things), then 350-> 370->.... see?!
  7. autos have a hard time spinning to the ~9K rpm the rotary can do. lower rpm(all things equal otherwise)= less HP. comment says the rev limiter was removed on this vid..... factory it came with a rev limiter, probably <8Krpm... so factory rating HP was lower. also, the s2000 didn't have an auto tranny. some praise needed for that, but woul dhave had some reliability issues most likely.... like an unlimited RX8 would have....probably.
  8. Terrain 2017 vs 2018

    can we see a return of the 80's dual style?!
  9. fuel cells, "HCCI"... we'll see about the 2nd from Mazda, hopefully "soon" in production(2019 model) Riv, yeah, if the "powertrain" can be modular, just pull it out if it's a flop and and change it to the other version...
  10. yeah. if they got the 100HP/L they get in the CX-9, be interesting if they did that to the 1.5L to compare with the 2.0L, but that'll probably never happen. EPA should really just post numbers at several MPH increments and then a "city" cycle and agressive Highway driving cycle.
  11. best i've gotten was ~42.3, worst was 28ish. but i don't do a ton of stop and go and don't speed excessively. wondering how the skyactiv-x will add to this data..
  12. Just from the first picture i thought it might be a Lincoln.
  13. HCCI, mazda style, more info

    Patent drawings reveal Mazda's SkyActiv-X engine makes clever use of a non-automotive component to make it work. http://www.roadandtrack.com/car-culture/a12047232/the-secret-device-that-could-be-the-key-to-mazdas-revolutionary-gas-engine/
  14. Industry News: Nine Automakers Pass On Frankfurt

    i think Mazda is supposed to be doing something more there... perhaps the 6, or more info on skyactiv-x....
  15. FYI , ultra low sulfer gasoine was also part of the world standard they (mazda) wanted to happen before they could launch this tech. that standard was supposed to go into affect this year in the US. this standard is supposed to be the same as euro spec, Jap standard... probably more...
