Mazda’s Turbocharged SKYACTIV®-G 2.5T Engine
Mazda announced that its turbocharged SKYACTIV®-G 2.5T engine, which made its debut in the 2016 Mazda CX-9, has received a 2017 Wards 10 Best Engines award. Mazda’s SKYACTIV®-G 2.5T engine offers many Mazda and industry first including its innovative Dynamic Pressure Turbo. This system uses a butterfly valve in the engine’s exhaust to create more pressure through a smaller chamber which results in the turbocharged being able to spool up almost instantaneously, providing up to 310 pound-feet of torque for ample flexibility and performance in any situation.
2016 Mazda CX-9 SKYACTIV®-G 2.5T Engine
The SKYACTIV®-G 2.5T engine is the first time Mazda has turbocharged a gasoline SKYACTIV engine. For use in the 2016 CX-9 Mazda engineers focused on real-world performance by studying how SUV drivers would drive in the city and created strong off-the-line acceleration in city traffic. By replacing the heavy V6 engine with the SKYACTIV®-G 2.5T in the 2016 CX-9, Mazda was able to eliminate more than 250 pounds and improve EPA-estimated fuel efficiency by 25 percent when compared to the previous model.
