Mazda has priced its all-new 2021 BT-50 range.
Pricing for the BT-50 starts at $36,550 before on-road costs for the base XT single-cab chassis 4×2, and extend to $59,990 before on-roads for the range-topping dual-cab GT 4×4.
Previously, the BT-50 range kicked off at $29,060 for the base XT cab-chassis 4×2 manual, and extended to $63,250 before on-roads for the range-topping GT Boss.
Unlike Isuzu, Mazda doesn’t offer pared-back ‘traffic controller’ models aimed at fleets on a budget. The only model in the line-up available with a cab-chassis is the XT and even it includes carpeted floors and alloy wheels.
As we already know, the third-generation BT-50 is based on the all-new Isuzu D-Max and shares its 3.0-litre turbo-diesel four-cylinder engine.
It produces 140kW of power and 450Nm of torque and is mated to either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission.
Like the D-Max, the BT-50 has a much longer list of safety equipment than before. All BT-50 and D-Max models come standard with autonomous emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, lane-departure warning and rear cross-traffic alert, among other features.
