The next generation of Mazda CX-5 models may come with a turbocharged powertrain, offering impressive fuel economy and performance. Many vehicles are getting turbocharged engines in order to optimize gas mileage and lower emissions as much as possible. We can’t wait to see the new Mazda CX-5 turbocharger in action.
According to AutooMobile, the new model may be getting a 2.5-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine. This power plant generates a whopping 250 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. There’s no word yet on the fuel economy, though it’s bound to be better than previous model years. If you would like to save money at the pump without sacrificing fuel economy, this model is for you.
What exactly is a turbocharger? By forcing extra air into the combustion chamber, a turbocharger can increase engine output by optimizing fuel-air mixture conditions. While turbos have been around for several years, it’s only recently that companies like Mazda have really found a way to make the most out of this technology.
The Mazda CX-5 will also have a 2.2-litre SKYACTIV-D engine for those looking for diesel options. The next-generation of Mazda CX-5 models is bound to be better than ever. With better fuel economy, performance, and emissions control, the next generation of the CX-5 will be truly unparalleled.
