Mazda BT-50 will launch with an extensive Dual Cab range

2020 Mazda BT-50 front 1 The Brand-New Mazda BT-50 will launch with an extensive Dual Cab range when it goes on-sale from October 2020.

A choice of 4×2 and 4×4 drivetrains, smooth six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmissions and Dual Cab Chassis or Dual Cab Pickups will be offered across three trim levels: well-equipped XT, ruggedly stylish XTR and highly-specified GT.

Additional BT-50 body styles will be introduced post-launch.

Powering the Brand-New Mazda BT-50 is a turbocharged 3.0-litre, four-cylinder diesel engine that generates 140kW peak power along with 450Nm torque, the latter provided from 1,600 to 2,600rpm for exceptional pulling power.

A thorough vehicle weight saving program has reduced weight by around 50kg (model dependent) over the predecessor model and this, combined with the responsive new engine, has led to impressive fuel efficiency gains.

In six-speed automatic-only 4×2 Dual Cab Pickup models, Brand-New Mazda BT-50 uses 7.7L/100km on the combined cycle.

This 7.7L/100km figure is matched by 4×4 Dual Cab Pickups when equipped with the six-speed manual transmission.

When fitted with the six-speed automatic transmission, 4×4 Dual Cab Pickup and 4X2 Dual Cab Chassis models achieve 8.0L/100km on the combined cycle.
