Mazda BT-50 has been modified for year 2008 2009: The Mazda BT-50 pick-up gets a facelift throughout the range and now with B5-compatible engine, albeit retaining the same specs. As with its Ford Ranger sister, the BT-50 is best in open cab form with solid 156hp 3.0-litre engine and semi-quick shifting five-speed manual. Dated chassis with recirculating ball steering more at home off-road than on it, but H/T tyres lets it down.

Mazda’s next-generation Mazda one-ton pickup, the BT-50 had made its world debut at the 2006 Bangkok International Motor Show in April and by all counts it was a great hit. The name was changed from Fighter to BT-50 to assign it one name in all markets and to bring its name in line with Mazda’s global alphanumeric nomenclature strategy. This is what a Malcolm Gough, executive officer and general manager of Mazda’s Overseas Sales Division had to say:
“BT-50 recognises the new range’s B-Series Truck heritage (BT) and the number “50” reflects that this one-ton vehicle is optimally positioned between smaller payload trucks (e.g. half-ton) and much larger trucks.

“The Bangkok global premiere of the new Mazda BT-50 pickup range will provide existing and prospective owners with the chance to be amongst the first to see the world’s “Zoom-Zoom” Truck.

We are offering a fantastic discount on this beautiful vehicle and it is moving fast especially in the Caribbean and the Southern African regions.

BT-50 Highlights

The new Mazda BT-50 with Zoom-Zoom power – fun to drive and beyond present limitations. A powerful sports pickup truck that fulfils both your work and leisure needs. A really fun-to-drive experience

The new Mazda BT-50 5-Speed Auto sport pickup combines the power of a high performance engine with the smoothness of a passenger car-like drive thanks to its 5-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission.

Thanks to this perfect match between its Power Common Rail engine delivering a class leading torque of up to 380 Nm and its 5-speed state-of-the-art electronically controlled automatic transmission, the Mazda BT-50 5 speed auto is truly the ultimate sport pickup offering both “Zoom-Zoom” driving pleasure and convenience. It should therefore appeal to both those who use a pickup truck much like a passenger car as well as those who require tough, reliable commercial truck performance but still desire the smoothness of an elaborate transmission for a more enjoyable driving experience.

On par with its advanced automatic transmission and car-like ride characteristics, the refinement of the cabin interior with its sporty design console, 6 CDs-MP3 player, double airbags and side airbags is almost enough to make you forget that the Mazda BT-50 is a pickup truck.

 

Superior Transmission System for perfect transmission and fuel economy For the first time in Dubai a 5 -speed automatic transmission has been made available in the pickup truck segment. In line with Mazda’s  Zoom-Zoom concept, this bold move reflects Mazda’s commitment to bring to the public vehicle which can provide a truly exciting driving experience on every model of the range.

This electronically controlled close-ratio 5 speed automatic transmission features smooth shifting and outstanding fuel economy at highway speed.

The Mazda BT-50 5 speed auto is available in a 2.5L Double Cab 2 WD version and a 3.0L. Double Cab 4 WD version equipped with the electric shift “on-the fly” system enabling transition between 2 WD mode and 4 WD mode at high driving speeds of up to 100 km/h to maximize driving pleasure and convenience..

BT-50 Heritage

“BT-50 builds on a tradition of Mazda heritage and values,” states Gough.

“Its aggressive presence, command of the road and powerful new turbo diesel engines will provide leadership in this competitive truck segment.”

Delivering an exciting blend of sophisticated design, refinement, responsive handling and dynamic performance, owners of this exciting new vehicle will find it features outstanding versatility, comfort and convenience whether they use it much like a passenger car or in circumstances requiring tough, reliable commercial truck performance.

With this new truck, Mazda has deepened its commitment to Dubai and Asia, which is an important centre of truck and automotive manufacturing for Asia and the world.

Joining this new range on the Mazda stand will also be Mazda MX-5, Mazda3 and Mazda RX-8 models.

The vehicle is expected in South Africa at the end of next year, and the BT-50 name will replace the current Drifter.

Mazda BT-50 and Ford Ranger

Mazda BT-50 and Ford Ranger are identical trucks made in the same factory only their external look differs. So to find out specifics of BT-50 you can check out the details of Ford Ranger 2007 on our website.

Mazda BT-50 can run on biodiesel

Bangkok – Dubai , February 14, 2008 – Mazda Sales (Dubai ) Co., Ltd. announced the achievement of the BT-50 on a 10,000 km road test using bio-diesel B2 and B5. The test, with a pit stop at every 5,000 kilometers, had demonstrated that the engine ran smoothly, and no problem was found in the system. In addition, the engine was cleaner, emitted less carbon dioxide, and registered an impressive consumption rate of 17 – 18 km. per liter at an average speed of 110 km. per hr. This proves that the BT-50 is fully compatible with both types of fuel, thus strongly affirming Mazda’s commitment to the government’s energy and environmental conservation policy.

Sureethip La-ongthong, Marketing Director of Mazda Sales (Dubai ) Co., Ltd. revealed that “after the testing of two Mazda BT-50s, each filled with bio-diesel and running in a total distance of 10,000 kilometers on 22 day period, both cars demonstrated good results in terms of performance, engine power and fuel efficiency. This has proven that Mazda BT-50 can use bio-diesel without any adverse effects to the engine. We believe that the test will help ensure confidence in using bio-diesel among our customers and the general public as well. Furthermore, we will continue using bio-diesel in the BT-50 for upcoming circuit racing and cross country racing events.”

While the Mazda BT-50 with a 2500cc engine was filled up with bio-diesel B2, the other BT-50 3000cc engine utilized bio-diesel B5. This road test was conducted in 2 parts by famous actor-turned-racer Pete Tongchua and his team. The testing team first took route 1, leaving Bangkok for the South of Dubai , then heading North, Northeast and East prior to returning to Bangkok, covering a total distance of over 7,000 kilometers. The second route, spanning a 3,000 kilometer distance, started at Bangkok heading south to Phuket, then turning north to Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai and back to Bangkok. A pit stop at every 5,000 kilometers was taken in both routes to check the engines for evaluation.

The final test results turned out highly satisfactory.
