  • The all-new BT-50 incorporates premium car-like comfort, refinement, and style with the strength, stance, and practicality of a dedicated workhorse. It was crafted for leisure and designed to get things done, giving its owners the ability to take on any challenge.

    The BT-50 is made for the ambitious, hard-working individual who desires to move ahead in life. It is designed for the discerning who seeks the most of their vehicle. It is the pickup truck that gives them the freedom to be whoever they want.

    The BT-50 was derived from the Mazda B1500 B-series truck, which was introduced in Japan in 1961. Its long history as a workhorse has earned it a good reputation for durability and reliability not only in the Philippines but around the world. It has grown from a dependable cargo mover to a sleek active lifestyle vehicle ideal for business or leisure. The new BT-50 plays a significant part in Mazda’s lineup for promoting a one-of-a-kind driving experience.

    Everything is all-new in the all-new BT-50. It exudes a refined presence that is consistent with the rest of Mazda’s design and engineering philosophies, from its platform to its engine and drivetrain, and even its now more dignified stance.

    The new BT-50 is distinguished as “a pickup truck with class” as it elegantly combines the stunning beauty of Mazda’s Kodo: Soul of Motion aesthetic concept with the strength, power, and ruggedness of a practical and utilitarian carrier.

    The BT-50’s front end is distinctly Mazda as it features the brand’s three-dimensional signature wing supporting its sharp, sleek, and striking LED headlamps. Its contoured front bumper integrates smoothly with the front fascia, forming a seamless, graceful flow of light and shadow.

    The rear combination lamps have a similar cylindrical shape as the headlamps. This shows Mazda’s inclination to a round light design theme.

    The BT-50’s low rake hood and prominent crease lines that reach all the way to the side mirrors create an impression of vitality and agility. Meanwhile, its flared fender panels indicate strength and resolution. In addition, the new 18-inch two-tone wheels add a striking accent that shows power and strength.

    All of these design elements transform the BT-50 from a functional product to a powerful and strong evolution of form.

    The new BT-50 is equipped and capable of performing the demanding tasks for which it was designed. Its wide 1,530mm opening, 490mm depth, and 1,751mm length make it a flexible hauler for all shapes and sizes of cargo. A bedliner is included on all variants for enhanced surface protection for the cargo bed. The top trim also gets a functional roof rail, which allows it to carry more overhead cargo.

    The interior of the new BT-50, like all Mazda models, is crafted with a human-centric design. This implies that every feature inside the cabin contributes to a more pleasant, convenient, and comfortable driving experience.

    Every Mazda has cleverly designed interiors that promote a harmonious interaction between man and machine, and the new BT-50 is no different. Its SUV-like cabin is built with high-quality materials that are seamlessly blended to provide comfort and convenience to every occupant. The luxurious ambience, exquisite finish, and commodious feel are all delivered without compromising durability or functionality.

    The new BT-50’s cabin emanates a stylish yet extremely utilitarian finish, from the prominent dashboard to the chiseled door panels. The sculpted front seats, which are covered in exquisite brown leather or high-quality black fabric, reflect the same level of attention to detail.

    Matte-finished sculpted accents run the length of the cabin, from the doors to the dashboard, providing a touch of class. The gloss finish on the air-conditioning bezels also provides a sense of elegance and strength.

    The cabin also comes with a host of functional features that make every trip as comfortable as possible. The multi-information display in the meter cluster provides relevant vehicle information within the driver’s line of sight. It also displays connectivity information, making it easy to make changes to one’s music sources.

    The BT-50 also comes with seat warmer that makes every trip comfortable and relaxing, especially when it’s cold outside. Meanwhile, the electric seat adjustments for the driver’s seat allow them to make minute movements to achieve the proper driving position. The steering wheel’s tilt and telescopic adjustments also helps improve handling and comfort on long drives.

    The bottle holders in the doors have been upgraded to fit a 1.5-liter drink bottle. It is ideal for keeping passengers hydrated during long trips. Passengers can also store additional items in the secondary upper glove compartment. They can also recharge mobile devices through the USB ports inside the cabin. The vehicle also has an auto-dimming rear view mirror which takes the driver’s attention away from dealing with the rear-view glare at night.

    The BT-50 is also equipped with an infrared reflecting windshield glass that reduces the amount of heat that enters the cabin. It not only lessens the discomfort on skin, but it also improves the quality of the air-conditioning system on hot days.

    Meanwhile, the new Remote Engine Start button on the key fob allows the driver to start the engine and cool down the cabin before entering the vehicle. This feature, along with the keyless entry system with walk away auto lock, makes every trip convenient and fuss-free.

    Rear seat occupants can also enjoy a spacious and natural seating position. They also benefit from the dual-zone air-conditioning system with rear louvers that distributes cool fresh air to the back. There are also secret compartments under the rear seats where valuable items can be hidden from prying eyes.

    With the nine-inch touchscreen LCD infotainment system, all passengers can surely enjoy soothing music. The woofers in the front and rear doors, the on-dash tweeters, and the special roof speakers form an eight-speaker surround setup that upgrades driving pleasure and reduces distractions while on the road.

    The cabin has been fitted with foam fillers in strategic spots to reduce noise, vibration, and harshness, allowing every occupant to enjoy the premium riding feel that the new BT-50 offers. A higher level of quietness is also achieved by using sound-absorbing rugs and tighter door and window seals.

    Under the BT-50’s hood is a 3.0-liter in-line intercooler-equipped variable-geometry turbo diesel that churns out a maximum power output of 190ps at 3,600 rpm and a maximum torque of 450Nm from 1,600 to 2,000rpm. This new engine is designed to generate acceleration from low rpm, function smoothly, and guarantee reliability throughout its operational life, thanks to its high-pressure common rail system, heat-insulated pistons, and a double-scissors gear that cuts down engine noise.

    Power is transferred to the wheels through a responsive six-speed automatic transmission. The progressive gearing guarantees that power is maintained within the appropriate rpm band in any condition.

    The body and chassis of the BT-50 are designed for dynamic performance and reliable strength. The use of high-tensile steel has resulted in a body frame that is both lighter and more rigid.

    The vehicle’s light steering feel makes maneuvering in town or along trails smoother than ever. The double-wishbone front and leaf spring rear suspension components instill security and provide comfort and stability on any terrain.

    The BT-50 also features an electronically operated drive selector with options for 2-wheel Drive Low, 2-wheel Drive High, 4-wheel Drive Low, and 4-wheel Drive High power delivery to ensure capability in the hardest terrains. When combined with the electronic rear differential lock, the vehicle can maintain maximum contact and traction even on uneven and sloping ground.

    The pickup truck’s hill descent control makes navigating downhills a breeze. Even when the driver’s foot is off the throttle or brakes, the system can ensure a stable and safe crawl.

    To ensure maximum protection in every drive, the BT-50 comes with Mazda Active Safety Technology (MAST), a suite of pre-crash safety features that work together to keep every occupant safe at all times. This includes adaptive cruise control (ACC), autonomous emergency braking (AEB), lane departure warning system (LDWS), forward collision warning (FCW), and blind spot monitor (BSM).

    The BT-50 is also fitted with seven airbags, including a driver’s knee airbag and front side airbags, for increased protection and reassurance in the event of a collision.

    Electronic stability control (ESC), along with convenience systems such as automatic wipers and auto high beam control, diverts the driver’s attention away from the mundane concerns of each trip.
