The 2018 Mazda6

2018 Mazda6 in Cleveland, OH

For the 2018 model year, the Mazda6 is getting some big updates that will make it more sophisticated and advanced than ever. Under the hood, the Mazda6 has two available engines. The base engine is a naturally aspirated 2.5-liter inline-four that gains cylinder deactivation this year. Buyers can choose between a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission.

New this year is a SKYACTIV® – G 2.5T engine rated at 227 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. If you opt for 93-octane gasoline, the engine has an output of 250 horsepower. This engine can only be had with a six-speed automatic transmission. With this engine under the hood, the Mazda6 is expected to deliver a much more engaging drive. Mazda also promises that its automatic transmission will be more dynamic than most.

Along with the new engine, Mazda has also said the Mazda6 should get both suspension and chassis upgrades and a new steering rack connected directly to the chassis is expected to deliver a superior driving response. All of these updates together will make the 2018 Mazda6 the best performing Mazda6 ever.
