Mazda To Delay SKYACTIV-D Clean Diesel Launch In North America


Mazda Canada Inc. has announced that the launch of its SKYACTIV-D clean diesel engine in North America is being further delayed from its Spring 2014 announced debut timing.

While Mazda understands its SKYACTIV-D can meet emission regulation requirements without the use of a NOx after-treatment system, it has decided that further development is required to deliver the right balance between fuel economy and Mazda-appropriate driving performance.

Further information on the program, including a timeline of launch for North America, technical specifications and fuel economy will be available at a later date, closer to launch.

Winter is Coming

If you drive a diesel powered vehicle, no matter how large or how small, you already know that diesel vehicles are versatile, economical, and cool. You also know that, when properly cared for, a diesel engine can last twice as long (or even longer) than a gasoline engine in the same application. So it makes good sense to take care of it.
In a Manitoba winter, it’s absolutely imperative that your vehicle be in top shape to take on all of the challenges that Mother Nature throws at it. You never know when your vehicle’s brakes, windshield wipers, or heating system can stand between you and discomfort or disaster. Taking the time to thoroughly identify and correct small problems now, before they become big problems can save you time and hassle in the long run. You need to know if your brakes, tires, or window defroster is likely to fail over the course of the next few months, so you can prevent it.

IAmDiesel Technicians have the Latest Tools

Diesel powered vehicles, just like any other modern technology, are constantly evolving. While the inner workings of a diesel engine remain relatively unchanged over the last several decades (one of their biggest advantages is their simplicity), the control systems that make it run optimally have evolved considerably.

On-board respond to variables in the environment, like air temperature, humidity, and exhaust conditions to make thousands of adjustments per second to ensure that your engine has just the right amount of fuel, applied to the cylinders at precisely the right time, to deliver the performance and fuel economy that characterize the modern diesel vehicle.

The only way to service today’s computerized vehicles is by interfacing with them, reading the information stored within to diagnose system malfunctions. Sometimes, reprogramming these sophisticated electronic controls is necessary.

At IamDiesel, the service centre at Western Turbo and Fuel Injection, we are Winnipeg’s experts for repair and maintenance of modern diesel engines. We pride ourselves on keeping our technicians up to date with knowledge and equipment that addresses the needs of today’s more complex, computerized diesel engines.
