A Special Treat for the 2019 Mazda CX-5

American customers spoke up and Mazda listened. The 2019 Mazda CX-5 Signature AWD now features Mazda’s SKYACTIV-D® 2.2-liter diesel engine. The 2.2-liter diesel engine’s inclusion in the Mazda CX-5 powertrain lineup was revealed earlier this year at the New York International Auto Show. It is a major milestone in Mazda’s relentless path to provide its customers with a premium driving experience. Today, let’s take a look at Mazda’s SKYACTIV-D® 2.2.


By offering the SKYACTIV-D® 2.2 in the Mazda CX-5, Mazda has addressed its US fans’ strong desire for a diesel engine, one that offers a premium driving experience. The addition of the SKYACTIV-D® 2.2 is a new reason to enjoy Mazda’s popular compact crossover SUV, and is a great nod towards Mazda’s growing pack of driving enthusiasts. 

What It Does

The 2019 Mazda CX-5 Signature AWD with SKYACTIV-D® 2.2 provides drivers with a high torque driving experience. It revs freely at high rpms and is estimated to deliver 168 horsepower at 4,000 rpm and 290 lb-ft of torque at 2,000 rpm. A sequential twin turbocharger realizes smooth and linear response when transitioning from low to high engine speeds, and also greatly increases low- and high-end torque (up to the 5,500 rpm rev limit).

EPA mileage estimates are 27 mpg for city driving, 30 mpg on the highway, and 28 mpg combined.
