Shortly after the reveal of the 2011 Ford Ranger, Mazda released the first photos of the all-new BT-50. Both trucks will be premiere at this week’s Australian International Motor Show in Sydney.
Some of you might have known that the two pickup truck models are the result of collaboration between Ford and Mazda. The smiley face front fa§ade is fully inherited from the other Mazda’s series. The interior wise, I would said that the new BT-50 feature all the accommodations of a passenger car inside. Much improved compare to the previous generation.
The new BT-50 in its teaser press release:
“It offers all the functionality required for business use combined with passenger car-like comfort for family use; and for active customers in Australia and Europe, it is the perfect answer for all kinds of outdoor leisure activities.
“With modern and refined styling both inside and out, the All-New Mazda BT-50 will raise the bar in the utility segment and for the first time provide a realistic alternative to the family wagon and 4×4 SUV.”
Somehow, the technical specification and details is still unrevealed by Mazda, but we expect a similar engine range to the new Ford Ranger as well.
