    Mazda News: Rumorpile: Turbo Power for the CX-5?

    the 2018 cx9 is 4,166 to 4,361 lbs the 2018 cx5 is 3,527 to 3,655 lbs 600lbs to 700lbs. having 2-3 adults less weight would be noticable. it's late, not googling the turbo engine weight difference to N/A engine

    Lincoln News: Rumorpile: Lincoln MKC to Become Corsair

    but how much RGB will it come with?!
  3. more so with the 'nox diesel. it'll be interesting if mazda puts the x engine in the CX-3 soon. 29 city / 34 highway now , but add ~25% makes it ~35/43 This will be why the small CUV/Crossovers(?) may continue to dominate even in $3.50+ gas prices
  4. would be interesting to see some $/mile for vehicle categories,brands,industry average over, idk, quarterly timescale. it feels like the last 10 years big jumps have happened in all but the biggest SUV/truck groups.
  5. have you driven an mx-5 recently? it really doesn't. I drove the ND club sport for about 2 days back in, march. only thing i was surprised by was how you couldn't putt up a hill in 2nd at about 10 mph.
  6. helping the earth, one human at a time....? j/k
  7. i nearly hit one a few months ago on a road barely lit and no side walk... admittedly i was also a tad distracted.
  8. just gonna add night joggers and such. sometimes its more the pedestrian being visible before having to swerve/slam on the brakes.
  9. nice OCN, depending on weight and gearing, that might make it kinda sporty with the manual. will the next ~5years get us to a new "golden age of engines"?
  10. i skimmed it. decent diet it went on. what are active roll bars?
  11. power handling of the CVT is unknown, right? best way to estimate it would be base it off the camry's engine(s), let's average the eco and "normal engine" performance to =~190HP from a 2.5L. a 2.0L could produce more like 152HP. not far off. /remindme when real specs for it are released. interior does look class competitive. mostly simple/straight forward. i wonder what the base will look like. exterior looks euro/scion/camry derived... mostly on the ugly side. this makes me glad the sedan market is shrinking.
  12. why not return to it's roots and use the new VC turbo engine and make another...260(ish)Z?
  13. it's a turbo 1.5L, duh. /s could it be the -x engine? not likely, not impossible. if it's HP peak is still 6K, means it needs to be modified to make ~158lbft at 6k. This would be an increase of ~16lb ft. how can an engine be tuned to produce ~12% more lbft? Vtec kicked in yo?!
  14. with high grade gas, make the same power(~1%) but mazda has like ~15% more torques. the 6 is slightly lighter for the '17 6 to the '18 accord. The tuning and transmission will be the deciding factors for FAST!
