Gas & Diesel Engines

Advanced SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY provides strength and agility to Mazda engines. Here’s what makes them so unique:

  • SKYACTIV®-G: This engine is a take on the aspirated gasoline engines and is offered as a 2.0L or 2.5L 4-cylinder. SKYACTIV®-G compresses the air-fuel mixture inside the engine at a rate of 14.0:1. This increases fuel-efficiency by as much as 15%.
  • SKYACTIV®-D: Compared to other diesel engines, SKYACTIV®-D engines have a lower compression ratio, improving fuel economy and lowering emission levels. The upcoming Mazda CX-5 Diesel will feature this technology.

Powerful engines are paired with transmissions to match. See how SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY transforms Mazda’s transmissions:

  • SKYACTIV®-Drive: This 6-speed automatic transmission offers Plano drivers the fuel economy and seamlessness of a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) and a dual-clutch automated manual. With this transmission, fuel economy is boosted by 4% to 7%.
  • SKYACTIV®-MT: This small and lightweight 6-speed manual transmission switches gears quickly without wasting gas.

Body, Chassis, & Handling

SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY is more than just the powertrain. With this technology and more, Mazda has engineered framework and bodies to be built for optimized fuel economy as well as exciting driving dynamics:

  • SKYACTIV®-BODY: SKYACTIV®-BODY is a body that’s 8% lighter and 30% more rigid for a stylish and sturdy build McKinney drivers will love.
  • SKYACTIV®-CHASSIS: This chassis introduced a new and improved front and rear suspension system and electric power steering, as well as a 14% weight reduction.
  • SKYACTIV®-VEHICLE DYNAMICS: SKYACTIV®-VEHICLE DYNAMICS with G-Vectoring Control reduces engine torque and shifts weight to the front wheels for better cornering.
