Isn't the Lincoln MKX getting a version of the 3.7L as well?
I have not heard that, and I am affiliated with a Ford/Lincoln/Mercury dealer.
I was also thinking, since the tranny's already come from Japan, maybe they would ship the both of them together?? I think Mazda needs to use the 3.7 because the power would put it over Camry and Accord and Altima.
You know what we have not talked about here, is the possibility of the 2009 Mazda6 being offered in AWD. I have heard nothing of the sort yet, but, I am curious.

I'm not sure what you're asking - are you wondering how to start a new topic/thread? If so, please tell me what you'd like to talk about, and I can point you in the right direction.

Could possibly be similar to the JDM version of the Atenza. After looking at the numerous spy shots taken of the Mazda6 in Michigan, I noticed the front grille was the "sport" type grille, instead of the black plastic mesh type. Also, the wheels were the same. If it holds true, we are getting one damn good looking Mazda6.

Yea, I hope they keep the 6 for NA roughly the same as the one they debuted in Frankfurt. Frankly, I'm lost as to what kind Americanizing the vehicle needs. After all, it is significantly larger than the outgoing model, it will have more power in both i4 and v6 trims, and they need to keep the handling sharp in order to retain their brand identity.
Avi, do yo know the eta for 2009 Mazda6? Rumors earlier were that it would be coming early 2008 (springtime). Any indications of that from your end?

I have heard nothing yet. I am starting to receive my 2008 inventory, and I can still order 2008's, which really remains unchanged from 2007. I have been told that MY2008 will be a short production run. As soon as I am able to order the 2009's, I will post an ETA.

I hope we get a 2009 hatchback with the 2.5L and 6-speed manual.

Current have a 3s with most of the bells and whistles (ok, no Nav) and I love it. This new 6 will be my next car if it looks as good in real life as it does in pictures.

The current rumor is that the North American-market 2009 Mazda 6 will look very much like the European-market Mazda 6 that came out recently, but will have slightly longer bumpers to meet NHTSA regulations and a slightly longer hood/engine bay to accommodate the V-6 engine (essentially a modified version of the V-6 drivetrain found on the Ford Fusion/Mercury Milan models).
