    My biggest disappoint with 2.5T is no availability in Sport / Touring/GT Trim. A sub 28K 2.5T would sell even with less bells n whistles. Yes it won't make much margins but it draws people to Mazda - 2.5T is already certified just put it in GT and sell it at 33K and in Touring at 30K. A extra 5-10K 2.5Ts per year is good.

    The turbo CX5 hasn't been released yet make me wonder if there is a problem, or possibly Mazda is rethinking the the lineup and pricing. Ed

    In 2020 the 2.5T will trickle down one or two lines. It's the regular strategy.

    I agree, but I suspect it'll trickle down. Think of when the 2.5L came out, it was only available on Touring and GT trims at first. Sport stayed 2.0L. Then 2.0L was only on the manual which was only on the Sport. Now in Gen 2, they dropped 2.0L from the CX-5 lineup in USA altogether.

    But I agree. At that price, no sale Mazda. I spent $25.5k on my CX-5 which wasn't even considered a great deal (but was what you could do in the area at the time). Approaching $40k is not my idea of a good time.

    I always wondered why they made the 2.5T standard across all trims in the CX-9, but limited it to "higher" trims for the 6 and now the CX-5. I suppose it's because the 9 is heavier and needs it, while the 6 and CX-5 can get by just fine without the turbo.

    Never knew the Sky X was a mild hybrid. Well that's good news - maybe 2021 CX-5 will get a mild hybrid with SkyX and 2.5T. Still amazes how much Mazda will sell the 2.5L - it will be carried in 2019 Mazda 3 too.

    Perhaps Skyactiv-X takes over lower trim models?

    Nah, I bet it drops fine. Could be wrong, but I just don't see it since they are legit taking pre-orders and stuff.

    Yep, it will be the method by which Mazda squeaks a year or two more out of the platform. Put the high-end options in the low-end models. Many manufacturers do that.

    The rumor is a new SUV model sized in between the CX-5 and CX-9. Kind of like how a Ford Edge sits between an Escape and an Explorer.

    Supposedly specifically made for the US market.

    So a CX-7?

    Pretty much, though they claim it's something new and different.

    The 40 is a pretty geniously packaged car. The cx5 does not compete with it in any way.

    Why would you think that? There is this big auto show coming up where it is going to be released, along with the new Mazda 3.
