Mazda has finally lifted the lid on pricing for the BT-50 dual-cab ute.

Pricing for the 2021 BT-50 will start at $44,090 before on-road costs, and extend to $59,990 before on-roads for the range-topping GT.

Previously, the dual-cab BT-50 range kicked off at $39,260 for the base XT cab-chassis 4×2 manual, and extended to $63,250 before on-roads for the range-topping GT Boss.

Mazda says there’s around $3500 extra value in every BT-50 compared to its predecessor.

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 only a dual-cab body is on the menu for now.

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.

The new BT-50 hits showrooms on October 1.

Engines

All 2020 Mazda BT-50 models use a 3.0-litre turbo-diesel four-cylinder engine producing 140kW of power and 450Nm of torque. It’s mated to either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission.

Four-wheel drive models feature switchable 2H, 4H, and 4L options plus a locking rear differential.

All models feature a braked towing capacity of 3500kg and an un-braked capacity of 750kg. Payload ranges between 1055kg and 1106kg.

Fuel Economy

The 2020 Mazda BT-50 consumes 7.7L/100km on the combined cycle in the automatic-only 4×2 dual cab ute. The same figure applies to the manual 4×4 dual cab ute.
