Mazda recently announced the arrival of the 2019 CX-5 Signature AWD with a SKYACTIV®-D 2.2-liter diesel engine at the 2019 New York International Auto Show. With pre-sales starting immediately, this new engine offers drivers an ideal combination of performance and efficiency. This is just one of many exciting additions to the popular CX-5 model.
According to Mazda, the SKYACTIV®-D 2.2 engine is estimated to deliver 168 horsepower at 4,000 rpm and 290 lb-ft of torque at 2,000 rpm. This powertrain achieves an EPA-estimated 27 mpg in the city, 30 mpg on the highway, and 28 mpg combined.* Plus, this engine not only has impressive torque and gas mileage, but it also comes with a smoother response at high and low engine speeds, as well as increased low- and high-end torque.
“As Mazda continues our climb toward premium, we will offer more powertrain choices that premium customers expect,” said Guyton. “I am happy to share that Mazda’s SKYACTIV®-D 2.2-liter diesel engine is joining the U.S. powertrain lineup with our debut model, the 2019 CX-5 Signature AWD with SKYACTIV®-D.”
The Mazda brand also paired with federal and state agencies in the U.S., like the California Air Resources Board, to ensure that the new diesel engine meets emission standards and passes regulations. That means you can get better torque and gas mileage while reducing emissions.
