This forum is all types of silly at times, I am sure that because the engine doesn't make a billion horsepower people will call the engines under powered. I don't think that I can call anything that Mazda makes right now under powered though as they make power in line with their segments.
Inline 6 is good for torque and smoothness. Lexus used to have the Supra inline 6 , guess its time again for the inline six.
We will see how the Duramax is when it hits the youtube test fleets
Times change. Things never stay the same. I just wish that GM would make an inline. I think inline sixes are just better overall engines.
If you think about it, makes way more sense now. Most engines Globally for GM is 4 Cylinders so an inline makes much more sense in today's market.
Though I really don't see I-6 engines becoming as common as they use to be, after all GM has probably produced more I-6 engines then BMW has produced vehicles in its history. I don't see automakers producing those platforms in mass numbers where an I-6 engines works.

GM with its great divisions used to be masters of building straight six engines. Good to see Mazda doing updated straight six. Doubt GM will do a gasoline I6 engine though, they are heavily invested in FWD engineering and moving away to electrics.
I find it sad that some people wish for GM to fail and can't comprehend any good news. A plausible explanation for this kind of behavior is that you have a miserable life so you wish the same to others. Cory Pham, Autoblog Poster
GM must return its divisions to being interdependent entities within the corporation. Decentralize and free the different divisions talents to foster brand differentiation and customer loyalty.
