It seems like we've been waiting forever, but the wait is finally over. Mazda has finally launched a diesel version of the CX-5 for the U.S. market, unveiled at the 2019 New York International Auto Show. Specifically, the 2.2-liter Skyactiv-D turbo-diesel engine will be offered in the higher-end CX-5 Signature AWD, part of what Mazda calls its "path to premium," as the company continues to set its sights on some of the more expensive competition.
The Skyactiv-D 2.2 makes use of a sequential twin turbocharger that employs a smaller turbocharger first at low rpm for quick throttle response, after which a valve opens to spool up a larger turbocharger at higher rpm. Mazda says this provides "smooth and linear response from low to high engine speeds, and greatly increases low- and high-end torque." Mazda estimates the output of the engine to be 168 horsepower at 4,000 rpm and 290 pound-feet of torque from a low 2,000 rpm. The engine has a rev limit of 5,500 rpm.
The 2019 Infiniti Q50 Signature Edition is coming to the NY Auto Show as a limited edition version of the sport sedan. Infiniti hopes to draw folks in with a new front and rear fascia, differentiating it slightly from the rest of the Q50s out there.
Every Signature Edition will come equipped with the 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 under the hood that produces 300 horsepower. The bright 19-inch alloy wheels seen on this car are Signature Edition exclusives, according to Infiniti. Then you get your requisite Signature Edition badging on the trunk of this Q50.
Calty design chief Kevin Hunter spoke with Car Advice about the Lexus LF-1 Limitless concept and how it advances the brand's signature spindle grille:
Probably the most controversial elements of modern Lexus products is the so-called ‘Spindle' grille shape. Hunter says it's here to stay. "Spindle is our brand identity, it's our aim to make it attractive of course, and the LF-1 is the next step in its evolution. We call it ‘architectural spindle'.
Simply put, The FJ Company builds some pretty sweet vehicles. Go to its website and you can spend hours building and lusting over the perfect classic Toyota off-roader. These high-end, high-quality builds don't come cheap, but you'd be hard pressed to find a better-built and more tastefully done FJ build. At SEMA 2017, The FJ Company debuted its latest model, the range-topping Signature build.
On the surface, it doesn't look all that much different than any other Toyotas to roll out of The FJ Company's shop. Look closely and you'll find all that a number of details have changed. This latest project started life as a 1981 Toyota FJ43 Land Cruiser. A frame-off restoration restored the frame and bodywork to like-new condition. It was painted in Toyota's Dune Beige color with a matte finish. From there things get far more detailed.
