Mazda have updated its award-winning BT-50 for 2010 with improved safety, comfort, convenience and style.

Now dubbed the BT-50 Boss range, it kicks off with the 4×2 Single Cab Chassis DX which adds power windows and mirrors to an already impressive feature list. The 4×4 Single Cab Chassis DX adds alloy wheels along with power windows and mirrors. Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) is now available as an option on both these models.

All Freestyle and Dual Cab DX models now add ABS with EBD as a standard feature along with alloy wheels and power windows and mirrors. BT-50 DX+ models which already feature power windows and mirrors now also add alloy wheels and ABS with EBD for increased style and safety.

The range-topping BT-50 SDX builds on its already impressive equipment levels by adding side airbags and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. In addition to this, manual SDX variants get a leather gear shift knob.

An efficient 2.5 litre common rail turbo-diesel engine with an output of 105kW and 330Nm continues to power the 4×2 Single Cab Chassis DX. All other models are powered by a larger 3.0 litre common rail turbo-diesel engine with an impressive 115kw and 380Nm which makes towing loads of up to 3000kg an easy task. Both engines employ a variable-geometry turbocharger and a large intercooler to ensure spirited acceleration.

Drivetrains are offered in either 4×2 or 4×4 configurations. Two types of 4×4 systems are available – manual transmission with manual shift or automatic transmission with electric shift – with each offering fuss-free transfer between 4×2 and 4×4 modes and go-anywhere performance.

Available in three value-packed grades and body styles (Single Cab, Freestyle Cab and Dual Cab) each is specifically tailored to meet the diverse needs of utility buyers.
