    Good news for a change! Report: Mazda6 going RWD in '22

    The next-generation Mazda 6 will adopt a new platform with a longitudinal engine layout and rear-wheel drive.
    A Skyactiv-X inline-six engine with a 48-volt hybrid system is rumored to be under the hood.
    The new 6 should be on sale by the end of 2022.

    Remember one thing, Zero x 3 was based on Chicom promises. Hopefully when we get passed this bad time, the CCP will have the credibility of dog$h!t.

    I had read a few rumors.....but this seems more legit than those. Good for Mazda if this is true, I quite like the current 6 design, despite its FWD underpinnings. Kind of surprised on a new I6 though.......thought the 2.5T was supposed to fill the gap for a while.

    We should never have let the foot off the Gas after bringing down CCCP, I can tell you our armed forces are fully focused on CCP's threat, its time the rest of the political class woke up and focused on bringing it down, and also dealing with home grown CCP sympathizers.

    I'd be VERY interested in checking this out when it comes out. I'm already a fan of the 6, this makes it even better.

    Bucking that trend, Mazda plans to adopt the blueprint of a full luxury model and hang a lower price on it.
    I'll be interested to see what "lower price on it" exactly means.
