Mazda MX 6: Shining Amidst A New Trend

Author: Kimberly Meyer
Who does not know what a Mazda is? Mazda has certainly been one
of the most popular and most recognized vehicle brands the world
over. A person who has been living in a world where there are
automobiles and vehicles and cars would certainly know what a
Mazda is. This vehicle brand is probably very popular because of
the type and kind of cars that they craft and produce. The
vehicles are made of quality materials, are unique, and can
really do perform well.

This vehicle company was founded in the year 1920. It was known
then as the Toyo Cork Kogyo Co., Ltd. and it was led by Jujiro
Matsuda. The company's first products were machine tools,
however it later on shifted to producing automobiles. The very
first vehicle that they produced was the Mazda Go and it was
done in 1931. Uniquely, unlike any other vehicle, the Mazda Go
actually held only three wheels. Even if the company has been
producing vehicles since 1931, Mazda was only fully and
officially recognized as an automobile maker in 1960. This time,
the company had already been able to produce their very first
car with four wheels. And they named it the Mazda R380 coupe.

One of the vehicles that run under the popular brand of the
Mazda company is the Mazda MX 6 which was introduced in the
early 1988. This vehicle holds performance, versatility and
style amidst the trend in the automobile world where sports
coupes were running low and the world is slowly becoming invaded
by sport utility vehicles. But the Mazda MX 6 was a sports coupe
and yet it continues to shine amidst the current trend that
time.

The Mazda MX 6 made its way to public knowledge through the Auto
Alliance which was actually a joint business enterprise of Mazda
and Ford. The sports coupe, Mazda MX 6, held auto parts that
were mostly the very same ones that the Ford Probe used. Because
of this, the Mazda MX 6 and the Ford Probe were considered to be
vehicle twins. Making this vehicle unique was that the designs
were actually based on a concept car in the early 1980's. It
held a GD platform. It was also made available in several trims
which comprised of the LX, the DX, the LE, and the GT. The power
of this vehicle comes from a 2.2 liter SOHC Mazda F2 engine
which held four cylinders. This engine has the capacity to
produce 110 horsepower. A turbocharged version of this very same
engine could be found mounted on the Mazda MX 6 GT trim. The
turbocharged version can produce some 145 units of horsepower.

Come the second generation of the Mazda MX 6. The new ones held
engines that were capable of producing more power. And because
of that, it also was very much capable of giving a more
impressive performance. For this new batch, the engines that
were offered included a 2.0 liter FS engine with four inline
cylinders capable of making some 118 horsepower, and the 2.5
liter V6 engine that could produce some 164 to 170 units of
horsepower.
