CX-5 Turbo Engines - Are They Forged Internals?

:
2017 CX5 AWD Touring
On the new CX-5 turbo gas engines. Is the bottom end forged? I assume it has forged rods but is the crank forged or cast/nodular? How about the pistons?

The turbo shares numerius internals with the 2.5 NA engine including the crank, so no to a forged crank. Don’t know about the pistons.

If you click on the link it says the Turbo like the 2.5 does not have forged crank but if you click on the right for the 2.5 it says the 2.5 has forged crank and forged rods. Both from the same site both can not be correct...

Good catch…I wonder which is correct?
