Aussie Mazda BT-50: Same Price, More Features

The Australian division of Mazda announced that light commercial ute, BT-50, now gets equipment upgrades for the whole range, while pricing remains the same. Each version of the BT-50 Boss range is available in three value-packed grades and body styles (Single Cab, Freestyle Cab and Dual Cab).

The 4x2 Single Cab Chassis DX comes with power windows and mirrors that add up to the other features like air-conditioning, alloy wheels and MP3-compatible CD player.

The 4x4 Single Cab Chassis DX adds alloy wheels along with power windows and mirrors. However, Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) is now available as an option on both these models.

All Freestyle and Dual Cab DX models now add ABS with EBD as a standard feature along with alloy wheels and power windows and mirrors. BT-50 DX+ models which already feature power windows and mirrors now also add alloy wheels and ABS with EBD for increased style and safety.

The top of the range BT-50 SDX now comes with additional side airbags and a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and manual variants get a leather gear shift knob.

The 4x2 Single Cab Chassis DX is powered by a 2.5-liter common rail turbo-diesel engine with an output of 141 hp and 330 Nm. All the other models are powered by a larger 3.0-liter common rail turbo-diesel engine with a 154 hp and 380Nm output.

Drivetrains are offered in either 4x2 or 4x4 configurations. Two types of 4x4 systems are available, namely a manual transmission with manual shift or an automatic transmission with electric shift.
