With the addition of two new models, Mazda says its new BT-50 range recently upgraded with a new powertrain, is now available to a wider variety of ute buyers.

Mazda Australia managing director Vinesh Bhindi says the update and availability of the model boosts appeal for the company’s premium utility vehicle.

“Giving customers a diverse and comprehensive product offer is a hallmark of the Mazda business,” he says.

“We know how important personalisation is for our customers, particularly when it comes to the utility segment.

“The addition of a new powertrain, a new entry grade and a stylish new high grade in the SP, combined with ready availability of stock, gives our customers more opportunity to find their right vehicle sooner.”

Mated to the new 1.9-litre turbo- diesel powerplant with automatic transmission, the XS grade opens the Mazda BT-50 range at $33,550 list price for the 4×2 single cab chassis. The XS is also available as a 4×2 or 4×4 dual cab pickup, priced at $42,490 and $51,110, respectively.

Available in three styles (4 x 2 single cab chassis, 4 x 2 dual cab pickup and 4 x 4 dual cab pickup), the BT-50 XS’ four-cylinder turbo-diesel generates 110kW and a 350Nm torque peak and is capable of towing up to three tonnes. All models feature a six- speed automatic transmission.

Mazda BT-50 XS 4×2 models ride on steel wheels, with key equipment otherwise being identical to the existing three-litre XT. This means a strong focus on advanced safety features and integrated connectivity technologies to get the job done, says Mazda.

At the top end, black and grey exterior features give a sporty appeal to the SP, which starts at $62,990 for the three-litre turbo-diesel equipped 4×4 dual cab pickup in manual and $65,990 for the automatic option. This model also introduces the SP badge to Mazda’s utility vehicle for the first time.

Positioned above the BT-50 GT dual cab pickup, the factory-produced BT-50 SP includes heated front seats and an auto-dimming interior mirror, like the GT, but, in addition, also has features such as metallic grey roof rails, gloss black exterior mirrors and door handles, satin black 18-inch (45.7cm) wheels, and a manually operated black roller tonneau cover, amongst others.

BT-50 SP is powered by the current three-litre turbocharged diesel four- cylinder engine, producing 140kW and 450Nm.

Exclusively available in 4 x 4 dual cab pickup form, the BT-50 SP comes with a choice of six-speed manual or automatic transmissions.
