The New-Look Mazda BT-50 has Arrived

May 9, 2018

Since the mid-2000s, the Mazda BT-50 has steadily built a reputation as one of the best, safest, and most reliable workmates for Australian tradies and Australian roads.

Now, more than a decade since the first BT-50 rolled off the Mazda production line, their flagship ute is getting a major facelift – and it means business.

The 2018 Mazda BT-50 now has a bold, new front-end design; which gives the ute a stronger, and more commanding street presence. So it looks just as tough on-site, as it does in town.

The new-look BT-50 continues to deliver safety; with a five star, ANCAP safety rating. This is thanks largely to its tough, reinforced body, and a slew of electronic safety features; including Trailer Sway Control, which adjusts your braking and torque to minimise trailers swinging from side to side; and DCS,  which helps keep traction in all conditions to avoid skidding or loss of grip.

Inside the cabin, the 2018 BT-50 comes with smartphone connectivity, Bluetooth, cruise control, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto as standard. Then, once you get where you need to go, the BT-50 also comes with a reversing camera, to make parking a breeze – even with a fully loaded tray.

On that topic, the BT-50 can still tackle even the heaviest of loads without breaking a sweat, thanks to its class-leading, torquey engine; and sturdy, steel ladder frame chassis. The payload has increased this year, affirming the BT-50 in the true, “one-tonner” category – with a full payload of 1389kg!

One thing that hasn’t changed, however, is that the BT-50 is still completely customisable for your particular trade and your particular needs. So, whether you need storage racks for long materials, or lock-up options for your all of your tools; the BT-50 can be easily configured to better-suit your day-to-day.
