I'm hoping they'll dust off the tooling for the '8 and put the 2.5T in that.

That's an idea I can get behind. An MX-7 or MX-8 with some actual power to take on the Toybaru twins would be epic.

And the R&D is mostly done. Just make sure to crash test a few and the costs are all in the tooling/production.

Knew this would happen when Mazda first stated their turbo 2.5 would fit in all their 3s and 6s.

This pains me so much knowing I'm going to miss out on a turbo 6. I just got a 2017 M6 at the end of February. I got a great deal so I guess I can't be too mad. I wonder if turbos can be retrofitted at least aftermarket.

I would be interested in Speed 6 or 3, but unfortunately I need to replace my aging Xterra first.

dj: replace Xterra with a turbo diesel CX-5 this fall and then get a 6 or 3 some time next year when they release them with the 2.5L.
WINNING.

I need something i can take camping and tow with. I should get a truck honestly, for as much as my X carries all time. I dont think the CX-5 could go the places I go when heading up to the mountains. I am looking at the Jeep GC diesel (if they ever get cert'd by the EPA and CARB) or the Volvo XC60 T8 (when I can finally test one). Other than that maybe I will wait to see what the new Bronco is going to be.

That rendering looks more like a 3 and closer to its proportions than a 6. That wouldn't be a bad idea either, a AWD 3.

doesn't the current CEO not like the mazdaspeed line?
didn't he make some comments towards it a while back?

as for the 2.5T, I do like that Dave Coleman confirmed that the cars being built today are being designed to ensure they can take the 2.5T if Mazda decides to go that route. It would basically be plug and play. The new KF CX-5 is a prime example.

now, put that in a 6 and they could have a real winner but I worry about what that does to their class leading fuel mileage.
without a hybrid / electric / hydrogen in the fleet, this could be a hit to Mazda's #'s and make them even less appealing to the masses who lets be honest, they just look at brochure specs and pick the highest one.

They will probably put the 2.5T's into boring FWD cars.
