Mazda 6 Dead for 2022, but Maybe Not Gone Forever

  • Mazda is discontinuing the 6 mid-size sedan for the U.S. market.
  • The 2021 model year will be its last and it won’t return for 2022.
  • A future Mazda 6 is rumored to be on its way with a new rear-wheel-drive platform and an inline-six engine.
