BT-50 also luxurious, with a ride as refined as any passenger car. Just a few minutes behind the wheel confirms what the new Mazda BT-50 is about – power, superb performance and driving pleasure.

The Mazda BT-50 was first launched at the Bangkok Motor Show on March 22, 2006. It shared its Duratorq/MZR-CD 2.5 L and 3.0 L Diesel straight-4 engines with the Ranger. In late November 2006, the new 5-Speed automatic transmission with BorgWarner transfer case has been added, as well as side airbags.

The BT-50 received a minor redesign in the first quarter of 2008, with a revised interior and several optional items made standard. The model sold in Mexico, Central and South America included the following options:

  • A 2.6 L straight-4 4×4 only. Same Motor and transmission used in the previous Mazda B2600.

2012 Mazda BT-50 pickup truck 4×4 has been designed by Toyota Australia and will be manufactured in Thailand.

2012 Mazda BT-50 faces intense competition from other 4×4 pickup trucks as 2012 Toyota Hilux Vigo, 2012 Mitsubishi L200 Triton, 2012 Isuzu Dmax, 2012 Ford Ranger, 2012 Chevy Colorado and 2012 Nissan Navara who have all been updated for the 2012. 2012 Mazda BT-50 has tried hard to give all of them a run for their money. 2012 Mazda BT-50 borrows strength of its platform with Ford Ranger,and is as tough, sturdy, sporty and comfortable as Ranger but has its own distinctive look. 2012 Mazda BT-50 is equipped with a manual six-speed transmission.

2012 Mazda BT-50 Interior

2012-Mazda-BT50-Interior is very comfortable available at Thailand top pickup truck dealer exporter2012 Mazda BT-50 Quality:

Even though Mazda BT-50 is a workhorse, its interior trims and finish are like a passenger car. Well crafted interior include the soft-feel dash, to the brushed metal garnishes, the quality feel to the switchgear, leather-wrapped multi-function wheel, and smart door trims.

Comfort:

Large seats are as comfortable as seats in high-end Mazda cars and a big plus is that the seats are now adjustable which is a great plus when one goes offroading.

Equipment:

Most models come with power windows and mirrors, Bluetooth, cruise control and air-condition. High-end models also include dual-zone climate control, sat-nav, leather-trimmed steering wheel and gearknob, foglamps and 17-inch alloys.

Storage:

Rear-tailgate is much larger now: It’s 1549mm long, 1560mm wide, 1139 between the wheel-arches and 511mm deep. The maximum braked towing capacity is a very hefty 3350kg.

ON THE ROAD

2012-Mazda-BT-50-Interior-DesignDriveability:

The BT-50’s shared five-cylinder 3.2 litre MX-CD turbodiesel engine sports 147kW and 470Nm of torque and effortless low-end tractability (with 100 percent of peak torque on tap between 1750rpm and 2500rpm). On road, in the six-speed manual, hills flatten beneath it, and swift, safe overtaking is a breeze. The throw of the gear-shift is chunky although a little wooly through the gate, but it’s easy to use and the clutch is nicely-weighted.

Off Road:

Like 2012 Ford Ranger, this mighty torque when combined with descent control, hill-start assist, locking rear differential, steep approach and departure angles make it an off-road monster.

There is so much torque, that, in the manual, you can simply point the nose at a gradient, engage first, slip the clutch and let it idle up and over.

Descent control is so superb that on one’s way down all one need do is to engage descent control and throw it out of gear into angle, take your feet off everything and it will carry you down beautifully. In BT50 the front springs are softer, allowing more compression and travel, which helps in really rough going. The dual-range transfer case can be shifted between 2H and 4H at up to 120km/h at the press of a button. But for engaging low range, the car must be stopped.

In a mix of on-road and heavy off-road work, it averages 10.1 l/100km: which is amazing for such a powerful big pickup truck, working hard. Claimed average consumption is 8.9 l/100km.

Refinement:

The strong, smooth-revving 3200 cc diesel is one of the best in the business. Vibration and harshness is beautifully isolated from the interior.

Mazda BT-50 is amazingly quiet, when one driving in on-road condition, one hears neither the tyre nor the wind. The BT-50 is quieter at speed over coarse road than even the improved Mazda 6. There might be a little fluttering from the base of the A-pillar, but shearing from the tyres barely intrudes.

Suspension: On road, this where the BT-50 needs more work. Nothing wrong on paper with the double wishbone front-end and leaf-sprung rear, but the tuning is out of whack.

Braking: Strong and arrow-true, discs all round with ABS and all the gear, and no sign of fade when off-road (the hill-descent control means you barely need touch the picks).

Mazda Bt-50 2009 Model

To reach Thailand’s largest 4×4 Auto Exporter please email us at jim12cars@gmail.com.

Mazda BT-50 has been modified for year 2008: The Mazda BT-50 pick-up gets a facelift throughout the range and now with B5-compatible engine, albeit retaining the same specs. Prices up by a few thousand from outgoing version starting at B541,900 for the base RWD open-cab 144hp 2.5-litre common-rail turbo-diesel manual to B895,900 for the 4WD double-cab 156hp 3.0 five-speed auto. – What we think: 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 Thailand 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..

 

 

Powerful Engine with latest technology

Mazda BT-50, the new powerful pickup truck with a Double Overhead Camshaft 16-valve Power Common-Rail Direct-Injection Diesel Engine. Equipped with a Variable Geometry Turbocharger with Intercooler and 32-bit intelligent computerised system, it turns out high driving power while being economical on fuel.

Drive-Balanced Power

The Mazda BT-50 offers you good balance. It makes driving fun and yet it can handle a tough workload. With Mazda’s famous chassis system, the Active Safety System and Passive Safety System, you can be assured of precision in every turn you make. First in Thailand’s pickup industry, the BT-50 comes with side airbags for added security. The Mazda BT-50 – good for both tough work and pleasure.

Drive a tough-looking Sporty Truck

Mazda BT-50’s new version features a tough-looking sporty design with well-integrated exterior and interior appearance. Its appealing external curves blend with the all-new sporty interior, showcasing a high-contrast illuminated dashboard and interior trim. BT-50 – a reflection of your taste in sports vehicles.

Mazda BT-50 can run on biodiesel

Bangkok – Thailand, February 14, 2008 – Mazda Sales (Thailand) 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 (Thailand) 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.”

Mazda Fighter – 2006 version Pickup

 

Mazda Fighter or B-Series Intro

No other commercial vehicle in the world can provide you the fun and satisfaction that the Mazda Fighter can. Better than your wildest expectations the Mazda Fighter is the ultimate class leader.

Mazda recently revamped the B2500 Fighter 4WD truck. And many steps have been taken to bring about a fresh new look. Exterior-wise, there is now a two-tone colour scheme and the roll-bar at the rear is now colour-coded for a harmonious effect. The effect is completed by distinctive 16-inch alloy wheels that are shod with Sime Alpina tyres.

The familiar 2.5-litre intercooled trubodiesel with indirect fuel injection has been improved: a 12-valve single camshaft unit that delivers more power at 121 bhp at 3500rpm (from 117bhp) and 262 Nm of torque at 2000rpm.

The Fighter continues to have a five-speed manual transmission. The suspension is basically similar to the previous model with an independent double wishbone front supported by torsion bar and tubular double acting shock absorbers. The rear is served by rigid leafsprings with double acting shock absorbers. Its is in the tuning of the suspension that separates it from the old.

Significant changes include an anti-lock brake system (BS) for the standard front discs rear drums brake arrangement, dual airbags for front occupants, stronger side impact beams in the doors and limited slip differential.

On the road, the ride comfort is impressive. Rear passengers are not tossed about like basketball over bumps and there is no noticeable pitching on the highway due to irregular road surfaces.

Torque is adequate, enough pull to give you that quick charge for a turbo diesel which is more than adequate to flow in with the highway traffic. Intrusion of engine noise is also kept to a minimum and you can cruise along on the highway and enjoy the music without increasing the music volume.

The new Mazda Fighter is as attractively priced as before but with a better package in engineering and fittings than before. Another attraction is the new range of colours to add fresh sparkle to its novelty.

Mazda Fighter is available in three distinct body styles — Single Cab, RAP Cab and Double Cab — and with a choice of two- or four-wheel drive the B-Series is powered by a 2.5-litre diesel engine. In the case of the 4×2 Single Cab it is normally aspirated, produces 84 bhp (4,000rpm) and develops peak torque of 144 lb/ft at 2,000rpm. All other models get the turbocharged version of the same powerplant which raises the figures to 109 bhp (3,500rpm) and 197 lb/ft at 2,000rpm.

 

Suspension is independent at the front with double wishbones and torsion bar while the rear features a solid axle and semi-elliptical leaf springs. Brakes are ventilated discs at the front and drums at the rear. ABS is fitted on all models bar the Single Cabs, but power steering is standard across the range.

All B-Series pick-ups come fitted with passenger and driver airbags as standard, and all the 4×4 models have a rear limited-slip differential to aid traction.

The Single and Double Cabs are self explanatory, but the RAP or stretch Cab is unique to the Mazda (and the Ranger, of course). It offers storage space behind the front seats as well as a couple of foldaway, forward-facing ‘jump’ seats. Not great for long distances, but sufficient for local trips to a job.

This rear compartment is accessed via rear-hinged, half-sized doors and the really clever bit is that there is no need for a B-pillar, just like on the RX8 sports car.

The exterior has a more refined and dynamic looking shape, newly designed headlights, larger windscreens, new front grille, semi-concealed wipers and moulded mud flaps. There is a greater choice of body colours to choose from, all of which have undergone Mazda’s new paint process, which ensures a superior finish and greater resistance to corrosion.

The stretch cab is aimed more at the user who needs the flexibility of an open loading area and extra passenger carrying room in the cab. Ideal for transporting crews or giving a secure covered storage area for work tools etc. The double cab offers users the option of more space for carrying passengers and still gives the flexibility of the open cargo area at the rear. This version has a second set of doors that open into the rear seats of the cab. All cabs have a bright and airy feel with excellent all-round visibility, thanks to a large windscreen. The interior has class leading room and comfort for the driver and passenger alike.

Legroom, headroom and shoulder-room have all been improved as a result of increasing the width of the cab and its overall height. To make it easier to enter and exit the vehicle, in addition to reducing driver fatigue, the seats have been positioned higher and have a higher hippoint. It also has many car-like features and equipment, including tilt adjustable steering wheel, powersteering, electric driver’s window and a low-fuel warning lamp. Other conveniences are day/night rear view mirror, intermittent wiper function, digital clock, climate control and rear window demister.
