As Mazda dealers, we love the chance to talk about new and unexpected things our brand is doing. One new development some of us never saw coming is the addition of a diesel model to our lineup! Meet the 2019 Mazda CX-5 Signature Diesel.

We love the 2019 Mazda CX-5 as it is, but it would be a lie if we said we weren’t excited about this new and powerful option. As an i-ACTIV AWD® vehicle, this SUV will see the addition of a SKYACTIV®-D 2.2-liter diesel engine. This premium option addresses a strong demand for a more powerful premium driving experience for Mazda customers all across the United States.

The 2019 CX-5 Signature AWD with SKYACTIV®-D 2.2 provides a high torque driving experience and revs freely at high RPMs. It’s expected to get 168 horsepower at 4,000 RPM and 2019 lb.-ft. of torque at 2,000 RPM.

All that said, it will still be surprisingly efficient – up to 20 mpg on the highway. Our favorite part about this model is the sequential twin turbocharger that provides smooth and linear response from low to high engine speeds.

Mazda engineers took special care to ensure the emissions for this vehicle meet all proper federal and state regulations. As usual, your get your choice out of several stunning colors and it comes with all of the standard and premium tech and convenience features you’d see in our regular 2019 Mazda CX-5.

Preorders have already been underway, so make sure to come to us quickly to get your hands on this new engine choice. To find Freeman Mazda, Irving residents can search for a “Mazda showroom near me.” We look forward to working with you now and well into the future of your car ownership experience.
