2015 Chrysler 300 SRT confirmed for Australia, but not for America

The high-powered 6.4-litre V8 Chrysler 300 SRT will be sold in Australia, but it won't make it to showrooms in America. Chrysler brand president and CEO, Al Gardner, told CarAdvice at the 2014 Los Angeles auto show that the brand is in a strong position given that its US rivals won't have rear-drive large sedans to fall back on in the coming years, as Chevrolet will lose the Australian-made SS (based on the Holden Commodore) when the Australian maker shuts its doors in 2017.

Mazda: turbochargers a 'costly' solution to efficiency

Mazda says its future range of Skyactiv engines are better suited to the company’s needs as naturally aspirated variants, rather than seeking turbochargers for efficiency and additional power output. Mazda has claimed that its next-generation of Skyactiv engines will deliver a further 30 percent fuel efficiency gain without the need for turbocharging as the company seeks to find the ‘perfect’ and leanest naturally aspirated engine.
