At this week’s 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show, Mazda finally confirmed that its redesigned 2014 Mazda6 will be offered with a diesel engine.

The new Mazda6 goes on sale in January, initially with just a SkyActiv-G 2.5-liter gas engine. The diesel will arrive in the second half of 2013.

The particular diesel engine will be a SkyActiv-D 2.2-liter four-cylinder. Specifications of the unit are yet to be finalized, though on overseas models this engine can deliver between 148 and 173 horsepower and between 280 and 310 pound-feet of torque.

Transmission choices will include either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic. Final specifications for all 2014 Mazda6 models will be available closer to their respective sales launches next year.
