In April we will know exactly what it looks like. There is a dealer meeting in Denver, and the new Mazda6 will be showcased there.
I find it hard to believe that we have not seen a single spy pic of this vehicle undergoing testing, if in fact it looks nothing like the Euro/Japanese model. Why did we see numerous pics of the car driving around the country if we are not going to get it??
Also, why would MazdaUSA post a picture of the new Mazda6 on their site if we are not to get it?
BTY, Mazda has certification tests for all sales employees, and the 2008 Mazda6 test show pictures of the up comming Mazda6 in them.

I hope it has manual transmission with a clutch, good powerful air conditioning, plenty of power, good gas mileage,and no increase in price. Does anyone know what the list price will be?

Considering Mazda does not have a CVT or DSG, I would suspect a manual tranny, possibly 6-speed, in addition to their 6 speed auto through out their lineup. The Mazda6 has always had good A/C. Fuel economy apparently has been improved with their new 2.5L as well as power. As for price, we are all still waiting.

A little birdy told me the front end of the Mazda6 will be the same as the Euro one. It will be bigger and the rear end will be different. Other then that, basically the same thing. The new Mazda3 however, is just HOT. WOW.

I have no idea when the new 3 will be out. I don't know specs either. I was privied to the design, which is just unbelievable.

I'm surprised since Euro Mazda6 and Japanese Atenza offer four cylinders only.
I would have expected different engines in the US to include a six cylinder.

I was referring to design, not engine choices. When I asked about what V6 Mazda will use, I did not get an answer. My guess is it will be the 3.5, not the 3.7. Bummer.

I can't really describe it. The best I can say is that is has more of a "flow" to it.
One more thing about the Mazda6, from what I was told, there is a bit of Lexus / Toyota in the rear design. More Lexus I hope. Also, the dual exhaust will be part of the bumper, not pipes under the bumper, like in the Euro version. Look for the Mazda6 to be near the size of the 2002-2006 Altima. Apparently, it is built on the same chassis as well, the GG/GY platform, not the Ford Mondeo platform, but, I did not get a confirmation on that either.
Once again, the front end and side profile are almost exactly what Japan is making for Japan and Europe. The rear end and overall size is where they will differ.
Also, I did not get a confirmation about AWD, either. Still a rumor.
