Mazda has revealed the line-up for its new BT-50 4×4 ute but pricing is yet to be confirmed.
When the new Mazda BT-50 4×4 ute line-up is launched in a few weeks from now it will be available in Dual Cab Pickup and Dual Cab Chassis body styles, and in three trim levels (XT, XTR and GT). Mazda says that additional body styles will be introduced after the initial launch.
Sharing the same platform as the all-new Isuzu D-MAX, the new Mazda BT-50 will be powered by a 3.0L four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine that’s claimed to make 140kW of power and 450Nm of torque, and this engine can be mated to either a six-speed manual gearbox or a six-speed automatic transmission.
Even at the lower end of the new range, the BT-50 XT Dual Cab Chassis and Pickup models will be well equipped with standard kit including 17-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, cruise control (manual) and adaptive cruise control (auto), seven-inch touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay and USB-connected Android Auto, DAB+ digital radio, reverse camera and a rear diff lock. Standard safety kit is also comprehensive with eight airbags, auto high beam, attention assist, AEB, blind spot monitor, emergency lane keeping, lane departure warning, lane departure prevention, rear cross traffic alert and more.
In addition to XT, the XTR Dual Cab Pickup has 18-inch alloys, power fold mirrors, auto levelling LED headlights, LED fog lights, LED DRLs, side steps, dual-zone climate control, leather-wrapped steering wheel, auto dimming interior mirror, nine-inch touchscreen, sat-nav and keyless entry.
The top-spec BT-50 GT gets heated chrome exterior mirrors, brown leather seat trim, driver’s seat with eight-way power adjustment, heated front seats, remote engine start (auto) and front parking sensors.
All BT-50 4×4 Dual Cab models will have a 750kg/3500kg towing capacity and a 1000+kg payload.
We’ll be driving the new Mazda BT-50 at the end of the month so keep an eye for our first drive impression. In the meantime, complete model details have now been uploaded to the Mazda Australia website.
