In recent times, the automotive world has also been affected by the crisis due to the pandemic COVID-19. Yes, this year, the upcoming Mazda BT50 is set to be revealed. While some major bands are delaying their product’s launch, there is still a way for the new 2022 Mazda BT50.

According to many sources, since this news’s excitement is widespread, this new model will increase sales. This model is rumored to be more innovative than the original model.

When we talk about its features or designs, this new Mazda could receive a good opinion for the future. So if you are as excited as we are about this, check them out all here.

Exterior Look & Dimensions

The new BT50 promises to be a modern rival to the Toyota Hilux and Ford Ranger from much information. The truth is, details about this new model are tightly guarded, so we manage to collect plenty of relevant information, including information that this next-gen model shares its platforms with the newest Isuzu D-Max and uses the same powertrain.

This newest BT50 model will certainly be a special project from this famous Japanese carmaker house. So the new BT-50 will have so many things to offer.

We expect some major changes from it, like using hybrid technology, as the third generation of trucks. Generally, all of the designs will suit Mazda’s trademark.

But we could not deny, the public wanted something new and exotic, despite that. This new Mazda truck will appear aggressive because it will have magnificent externals with a larger front section.

This Mazda’s latest model’s length and grille will have a comparable dimension as the origin BT50. We expect the same design language as on the latest CX-5 crossover because it is the next-gen.

According to the recent news, this dual-cab truck is one of Mazda’s products that set up to refresh its whole lineup of vehicles. Because of its compact and attractive design, the previous Mazda BT50 was last year in line with plenty of famous models. So we hope that the 2022 BT50 would bring a lot of fascinating things.

Interior Updates

The new gen of Mazda BT-50 Pickup Truck will have a fascinating interior and, of course, advanced technology. It will offer amazing materials like LED technology and elegant leather in natural colors as well. If the rumor is right that this new BT50 will use the same feature as Isuzu D-Max, then the new touchscreen technology on its infotainment system will adore the central console.

From many sources, instead of using Ford SYNC, the next-gen Bt50 will feature the new MZD Connect. You also will find the new-gen BT50’s utterly new design with active safety features. It may supply plenty of new technological capabilities in the area of safety plus driver guidance solutions.

Some distinctive Mazda features, such as the soft-touch dashboard, digital speedo on its instrument cluster, and its air-vent design, are probably amazing, too. This new model will also offer decent legroom for its rear seat and is fitted with ISOfix child seat anchors. Separate air vents are also available for aft passengers.   

Technically, it basically will be the same, but we can expect major upgrades. Additional improvements will be accessible in up levels. Mostly, its gadgets have been standardly modernized. It wouldn’t surprise if this new model had Android Auto wireless and an Apple Carplay in the upgraded version. Other basic features will be heated seats and car-USB connectivity.

Mazda also promises to offer a full suite of semi-autonomous driver assists, just like the new D-Max. Cross-traffic alert, blind-spot monitoring, along autonomous emergency braking is a must. Shortly, Mazda will likely use some wonderful designs for this truck because it focuses on modernizing the current collection.

Engine Specs & Features

The new BT50 is the pickup truck that comes with a muscular fascia. In terms of engine, we anticipate that the new BT50 will have similar features to the previous model because of the D-Max. 

All-New Mazda BT-50 powered by 3.0L Turbo-Diesel engine with 140 kW ( 187 Horsepower ) and 450N-m of max torque.

The new Mazda BT50 will deliver its power through manual transmission’s six-speed or an automatic one. The new model BT50 can leave a technical obstacle at 25.3 degrees and has a 30.4 degree of accessibility angle. It also has a competitive off-road capability, with the grounding clarity of 240 mm and the ability for water fording on a scale of 800 mm.

These all can be done without any destruction to its bumper or even the back section. The new BT50 can face such roads as cross country, forest, or desert areas with this ability. Theoretically, this new vehicle could be used in rocky ground or anything hard to access by a common pickup.

Fuel Economy

There is a slight difference in fuel consumption between automatic and manual transmission. You can see the data regarding the BT50’s fuel economy in the table below.

The dual cab is divided into 5 variants: XT Cab Chassis, XT Pickup, XTR Pickup, GT Pickup, and Thunder Pickup.

Of all the BT-50 variants, the Thunder Pickup is the most special and gets the most attention. The Mazda BT-50 Thunder comes with several advantages, including:

The forthcoming Mazda BT50 surely is a great pickup, with all of its specs and fascinating additions. But the new BT50 will surely raise its price in the next year. But it is still unconfirmed yet. Mazda will launch the prototype first, for the eastern countries. Looking at this, this truck should be available around the world by the end of 2022.

To be sure, the BT50 model is popular in the market, and it is the main competitor to Isuzu D-Max. To the next-gen, of course, we expect some noticeable changes. It will raise the values and standards as well. As a matter of fact, all is not officially confirmed, so the exact price is not yet available.

Will the Mazda BT50 Come to the US?

As per our previous explanation, the new model of BT50 will launch its prototype for the eastern market. It should be available on the open market, too, by the end of 2022. But once again, Mazda still has not confirmed it.

As we all know, Mazda was not offering the origin BT50 pickup in the US. Despite Mazda’s presence in the US, this country has its policy about selling pickup.

This policy requires that any company outside of the US that plans to sell a pickup truck here must manufacture them here, too. So, since Mazda didn’t manufacture it in the US, it looks like the New Mazda BT50 wouldn’t be sold there too.
