Mazda Australia has confirmed the pricing of the all-new Mazda BT-50.


Details released today reveal pricing for the BT-50 Freestyle and Dual Cab models. Mazda Australia will confirm pricing of the BT-50 Single Cab closer to its local showroom debut, coming soon.

The Mazda BT-50 Freestyle and Dual Cab models range from $32,590 to $52,710. This compares closely with the new Ford Ranger Super and Double Cab models, which are priced from $30,240 (XL petrol manual) to $57,390 (Wildtrak).

All Freestyle and Dual Cab models are powered by the 3.2-litre inline five-cylinder turbodiesel shared with the Ranger. The engine produces 147kW of power (at 3000rpm) and 470Nm of torque (1750-2500rpm).

The engine comes standard with a six-speed manual transmission, and select models can also be optioned with a six-speed automatic ($2000).

All Mazda BT-50 models are now equipped with cruise control, Bluetooth with audio streaming, air conditioning and power windows and mirrors. The standard safety kit includes Dynamic Stability Control, ABS, EBD and EBA. Freestyle models get four airbags while Dual Cabs get six.

XT models get 16-inch steel wheels, body-coloured bumpers, cloth seats, vinyl floors, steering wheel audio controls, trip computer, Hill Launch Assist, and plenty of other features.

The XTR steps up with 17-inch alloy wheels, fog lamps, dual-zone climate control, leather steering wheel and gear knob, carpet floors, satellite navigation and chrome trim highlights.

The GT tops the range with automatic headlights, rain-sensing wipers, auto-dimming rear-view mirror and leather upholstery.

  • CS

    They look much better with bar work – the front is hidden enough to make it almost acceptable. Just need to throw out the ugly tail lights now…

    • Nelson Muntz

      Well, the one with the black bar looks OK, but what the $%#@ is that other thing???

      • Harry

        Dame Edna

        • Sumpguard

          PMSL. I was thonking the same. The understanted bullbar looks so much better but is still hiding an ugly duckling.

          Why on earth would you choose this over the new ranger? Mazda have just helped ford increase its market share.

          • Allan

            Price Price Price

          • Sumpguard

            Not even the price will help it for many buyers. Whilst some will argue the styling is “adventurous” they ignore the fact that these vehicles are most often bought by tradies that want the upper spec models to double as a family weekend and having work many years in the building game I can assure you that tradies like to look “masculine” in their vehicles and king gee workwear.

            This falls well short on “masculine” to my eyes at least. Harry’s “Dame Edna” comment summed it up beautifully. Those massive indicators look like eye liner!! ….and those glasses …oops I mean bullbar !! All it’s missing is the pink lippy on a personalised plate and the Barry Humphrey’s transformation is complete. Want a DRAG?

    • The Truth

      Why is there a $10,000 difference between the top spec Mazda GT and the Wildtrack Ranger ? Why is the Ford product dearer than the Mazda in every model ? Aside from the difference in appearance and interior styling the two are structurally the same. I think Ford need to respond and lower the Ranger prices, otherwise they will loose sales to mazda, regardless of the ugly front & rear !
      I’ve driven the XLT dual cab 3.2 auto & manual, and the auto is the best truck I have ever driven, but now I have to question “why the extra cost Ford” ?

  • AndyGF

    Can you sssay SSangyong?

    • toxic_horse

      lol you beat me to it. The rear does look like a SSangyong!!

  • theillestlife

    im sorry to anyone who likes this, but, it looks hideous. what were mazda thinking with the HUGE front lights and the rear diamond shaped lights that are more to the side of the cab than the back tailgate :S

    • AndyGF

      I agree, and whoever thought of putting a fake tail light on the actual tailgate door should be shot! Those are going to be the most frequently replaced items on any UTE anywhere in the world…

      Again, yet another vehicle designed by somebody who has never actually used a vehicle they are designing in the first place.

      • AndyGF

        Oooooh! That one really upset the MAZDA rep department… Heh!

        (truth hurts!)

  • FrugalOne

    Does this have a light clutch like most Mazda’s?

  • Rick

    it’s really not a good sign when you have to advertise your brand new model with a bulbar to cover up the front . But it’s still better than a hilux

  • FrugalOne

    I don’t understand how its so expensive, most imported utes are way over the odds, be ~ $35k driveaway of the BASIC cab chassis, INCREASED $15K!!

    Thailand has free-trade with AUS so thats 5% advantage over Chinese and Korean made, pocketed by the importers

    I would buy the Cummins powered Foton from China and a good $20,000 left over for a Ducati or Seadoo etc

    Agree with the others, it looks very odd

    Just buy a HiLux, least you can resell it for more than $2

    • David

      Huh? They haven’t released prices of the base model single cab yet. “Pricing of Single Cab models will be revealed closer to the on-sale date.”

  • Honesty

    This is a great styled car… Really loving the last of the Nagare style. Hilux is boring and so are Volkswagen….

    • Joker

      This sort of styling does not belong on a Ute.

  • CK

    When is the first facelift due?

    • scamma

      2 months ago

    • PhantomHamster

      Facelift was due about a week before they released this… actually I reckon it looks like that stupid woman who had all that plastic surgery to look like a cat..

  • Snoop

    The cute smiley face might work on the 2s, 3s and 6s. But not on this.

    • o

      How good would this look with Cx-5 face though

  • Karl

    Needs more than a bull bar to cover it up.
    Cow catcher anyone?

  • Westie

    Perhaps the “styling” dept were told to ensure it wouldn’t be mistaken for a Ranger. Not knowing what the Ford would look like, they made sure it wouldn’t be mistaken for anything!
    ‘cept perhaps an old Ssangyong!
    Hopefully they look better in real life, or the Mazda commercial salespeople are going to have a lot of free time.

  • Flabby Chap

    The front looks like The Joker.

  • http://ozmazda.com ozmazda

    Why cant a ute look modern, fresh and different…
    Mazda it looks great….not like a boring “yawn” ute or that cousin of yours that looks like a spewed up american lunch…..
    I commend Mazda using a local supplier for accessories and having them available when the ute is launched.
    say what you like but it will sell…..

    It’s growing on me, I’m starting to get it.

  • pantz

    the front is growing on me! i really like it now. but the tailights just dont go with the car its like there to far up the quarter.

  • Tim

    A lot better with the bullbar, starting to look like more tough guy and less girly now.

  • paulb

    Outstanding in design+engineering.The roobar helps but the smiley face doesnt belong on an Aussie ute.

  • Allan

    Well what ever anyone thinks the GT is a lot cheaper than the Ranger. The Ranger might look better and more truck like but in the end it comes down to price.

    • Richard

      “Topping out the range is the Ford Ranger Wildtrak, which is available only as a double cab. The Wildtrak features 18-inch alloy wheels, leather upholstery, power adjustable and heated front seats, a five-inch satellite navigation system with rear-view camera, and a sporty front bar and roof rails.”

      Maybe all these extras justify the price difference.

  • Flabby Chap

    Mazda announced Australian-developed bull bar option for its all-new Mazda BT-50 in July 2011 😀

  • shane

    currently tossing up between this and the Ranger, have driven the BT50 and going to drive a Ranger on Monday. The BT looks ALOT better in the metal (looks horrible in photos).

    I still don’t love the tail lights, but after seeing both in the metal, I think I actually prefer the BT from front on (surprised myself, too!).

    I think I am going to struggle to justify an extra $5k for a Ranger with less features…

  • Stick

    Sack whoever is responsible for your styling, Mazda, and employ someone who isn’t gay to design a ‘Real Man’ 4×4.
