The Mazda6 comes with more available horsepower, better gas mileage, and more base features than the Ford Fusion and many other cars in its class. As we mentioned above, the 2018 Mazda6 is the first version to come available with a turbocharged engine. Let’s explore that a little more. The Sport and Touring trim levels only come with the base 187-horsepower, SKYACTIV®-G 2.5-liter DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder engine with VVT and Cylinder Deactivation. While that is sure to impress many drivers, some have been wanting something with a bit more ferocity. Enter the Grand Touring, Grand Touring Reserve, and Signature trims. These models all come standard with a 250-horsepower, SKYACTIV®-G 2.5T Dynamic Pressure Turbo DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder with VVT. This engine can also be found on the Mazda CX-5 and Mazda CX-9 and it is more powerful than most options available in this class.
