So I was talking to one of my guys at the dealership and got some info on the 2010 speed3 and also new speed6 we got in to a good conversation when he mentioned the twin turbo mazdaspeed cx7. All this came from a mazda rep that was giving them some training on the new cars. What you guys think about it?

Eh. I also heard from a rep at the local car show the miata was getting a twin rotary and the next rx-7/8 was getting a triple rotary. I'd take everything with a grain of salt into some of the auto news ppl get inside source material.

unless they're planning to use a twin turbo v6 on the cx7, i'm not quite sure why you would bother to twin up a 4 banger... :shock:

Well if its a V6, that means they will be using the ford ecoboost motor since mazda doesn't have their own v6. I'm not seeing the point to a 350 hp cx-7.

There's no point to a Jeep SRT-8, MB AMG SUV or a Porsche Cayenne Turbo S either. If they could keep it around $40K (Canadian), I might be interested in at least taking it for a test drive.

That said, I'm always highly dubious of these 'mazda reps'. I have a feeling they talk a big game when in reality, they have very little visibility of future models.

I'm almost certain there is no space for a V6 under the hood. - The CX-7 will stay with a 4cyl. A V6 is available (3.7L in the 6 and CX-9) but would make the CX-7 too nose heavy which is why they didn't go with one in the first place.

Current gen, next gen, it's not going to be a twin turbocharged V6. That would bring the price significantly up as it's lacking in many areas to be able to support a twin turbo V6. AWD would need to be standard, a new transmission would be in order, not to mention a new platform because I don't see how you're shoehoring a V6 in this current platform's nose, etc.

It's already been confirmed that it's getting revised turbocharged four that will get 21/30mpg in FWD form in 2011.

the new cx7 could get fords ecoboost twin v6. IF im not mistaken the cx7 and ford Edge are based on the same platform and the edge will definitly be recieving the ecoboost technology. I know the ford side more than the mazda though.......

Just ignore pretty much all what a salesman tells you.

Bingo. Since when do salesman actually know anything.

I had one who wanted to take my deposit for the new 2010 mazdaspeed miata.
