Next-generation Mazda6 Sedan dead in the water.

Mazda has begun rolling out its all-new RWD platform with thew CX-60, a CX-5 look-alike that will be sold in Europe. The U.S.-bound CX-70 and CX-90 will ride on this platform as well, but another vehicle was promised as well: the next Mazda6 sedan. In an apparent deal with Toyota, this powertrain would also be shared with the next Lexus IS, but news today has shattered all of those expectations. In an interview with Autocar, Mazda Europe’s engineering and development head shared the unfortunate news that, at least in Europe, the next Mazda6 has ultimately been cancelled in favor of more crossovers. More details on this development here.

The Trofeo is a 3.0L twin-turbo V6 with 523 hp and 457 lb.-ft. of torque. Finally, the Folgore represents the brand’s new all-electric powertrain. It uses a 105 kWh battery and has up to 590 lb.-ft. of torque, but no horsepower figures have been announced. More details on the Grecale can be found here.

Chevy shows off the Equinox EV again with more angles.

Chevrolet recently teased the upcoming Blazer EV for the first time, but we already had a good look at the smaller Equinox EV thanks to their announcement at CES 2022. Now the brand has released a new video showing of more angles of the $30,000 crossover. That price is a little deceiving however, as new details admit the first edition to go on sale in 2023 will be the most expensive RS trim. The less expensive variants will come later and are promised to be at or under $30k to start. The Equinox is one of three officially-announced EVs coming from Chevy in the next two years, including the Silverado and Blazer EVs. See the video and more here.

The U.S. EPA has released its official range numbers for the all-electric Ford F-150 Lightning. The results even shocked Ford themselves. The results beat the company’s initial estimates by around 20 miles on average, depending on the trim level. You can go as far as 320 miles with the extended range 131 kWh battery, which is available on all trim levels. Range drops to 300 miles when you choose the top-end Platinum trim likely due to its extra features and equipment, and therefore weight. The standard range 98 kWh battery goes 230 miles on a charge and is available on all trims except the top Platinum. More on the breakdown here.
