27 Jun 2001
By BRUCE NEWTON
THE V6 engine is basically a large-bore version of the Mazda MPV powerplant. It produces maximum power of 150 kW at 6000 rpm and a torque of 266 Nm at 4700 rpm, figures which place it at the head of the soft-roader pack. The 2.0-litre, four-cylinder engine produces 97 kW of power at 5400 rpm and 183 Nm of torque at 4500 rpm - figures outdone by the Honda CR-V. Mazda had overall responsibility for the engines during development of Tribute and Escape. Mazda designed the overall packaging, intake and exhaust, air cleaner, intake manifold, engine mounts, battery and alternator.
Did you know?In the early 1980s Mazda began its links with sport. The lawn bowls event from which the Jack High TV programme was made marked the beginning and through the years the company has had strong links with basketball, netball, athletics, tennis, cycling, squash, golf and football - including rugby and Australian Rules football
