2016 Mazda BT-50 launched in Thailand [gallery]
The 2016 Mazda BT-50 has been launched in Thailand with the Ford Ranger-based ute copping a handful of styling tweaks.
DETAILS ABOUT THE refreshed 2016 Mazda BT-50 are still thin despite the thing being launched in Thailand. The main changes on the outside are a new front and rear bumper treatment, new headlights, side indicators incorporated into the wing mirrors and a rear view camera available as a safety option for the first time ) likely to be standard on upper-spec models. The interior carries over almost unchanged.
In Thailand, at least, there are three engines available, but locally, Mazda Australia has said the BT-50 will continue with its current engine line-up, meaning a 2.2-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel (110kW/375Nm) and a 3.2-litre five-cylinder turbo-diesel (147kW/470Nm). Transmission choice will continue to be either a six-speed manual or six-speed auto.
The refreshed 2016 Mazda BT-50 is expected to go on-sale locally later this year.
