If you want more power out of your garden hose, you put your thumb over the nozzle. It’s the same principle we used to get more power out of our first-of-its-kind four-cylinder dynamic pressure turbo engine in the all-new Mazda CX-9.
By using a valve to increase the velocity of exhaust leaving the SKYACTIV®-G 2.5T engine and recirculated through the turbo, turbo lag is virtually eliminated. So you get more power at a lower RPM. And because it’s lighter, you get best-in-class EPA-estimated combined MPG1 with effortless, linear acceleration, the moment you step on the pedal. It’s a powerfully simple idea.
