2018 Mazda6 for Sale from CardinaleWay Mazda On Sahara Blvd - Las Vegas

2018 marks an exciting year for the Mazda6. Most significantly, Mazda introduces a new optional engine with more power. The 2018 Mazda6 gets an available 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that positions it to compete with other midsize sedans, most of which have a number of engine choices. According to the Sahara Blvd. Mazda dealer, the new engine is the same one found under the hood of the Mazda CX-9 crossover. Additionally, the existing 2.5-liter engine gets cylinder deactivation technology.

Other changes for 2018 include updated exterior styling and a new premium interior. The infotainment system is easy to use, and available safety features like automated emergency braking and adaptive cruise control keep everyone in the Mazda6 safe and sound. And the 2018 Mazda6’s precision-tuned suspension provides an outstanding ride, even on bumpy roads.

Drivers aren’t the only ones who love the 2018 Mazda6. The automotive press has been effusive in its praise, with Consumer Reports offering this in its recent review: “The Mazda6 provides a sporty alternative to the conventional humdrum midsized sedan. A coupe-like silhouette stands out with eye-catching looks. You probably won't be bored driving the car, either. Quick, responsive steering contributes to agile handling. But the 6 isn't all about flash.”

The 2018 Mazda6 comes with a choice of four trim models: Sport, Touring, Grand Touring and Signature. Front-wheel drive is standard across the lineup. There are two engines on offer. Powering all trim levels but the Signature is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 184 horsepower and 185 lb.-ft. of torque, matched to a standard six-speed automatic gearbox or an optional six-speed manual. As we mentioned earlier, this engine now features cylinder deactivation.

The Mazda6’s new Skyactiv-G 2.5-liter forced-induction four-cylinder engine is standard on the Signature trim and optional on the others. This block is paired to a six-speed automatic transmission and develops 250 horses and 310 lb.-ft. of torque with 93-octane gasoline. Switch to regular gasoline and you’ll get 227 hp.
