2021 Mazda BT-50 prices confirmed for Australia

While plenty of details have been released about the all-new 2021 Mazda BT-50, including some of the accessories that will be available, Mazda Australia is today confirming the complete price range ahead its market launch on October 1.

Only dual-cab models will be offered initially, including pickup and cab chassis body styles. These are being presented in XT, XTR, and GT trim lines, in both 4×2 and 4×4 form with manual and automatic options in some cases. All are powered by Isuzu’s new 3.0-litre turbo-diesel four-cylinder that produces 140kW and 450Nm, found in the new D-Max.

Fuel economy averages span from 7.7L/100km for the manual transmission dual-cab 4×4 pickups and the automatic 4×2 dual-cab pickups, while all other formats are rated at 8.0L/100km. That includes the top GT 4×4 dual-cab pickup with the automatic transmission option.

Mazda says the new model, thanks to its added safety tech and enhanced connectivity, offers about $3500 in added value across the range compared with the outgoing model. For example, the range-opening XT 4×2 dual-cab chassis automatic starts from $44,090. The nearest equivalent in the outgoing range, the 4×2 XT HiRider dual-cab chassis auto, starts from $41,260. However, it doesn’t come with the same level of advanced safety tech.

All new models come with autonomous emergency braking as standard, along with adaptive cruise control for the automatic models. Blind-spot monitoring, lane departure warning, rear cross-traffic alert, and a rear-view camera all come as standard as well. Needless to say, it is the safest BT-50 to hit the market. Speaking about its arrival, Mazda Australia managing director Vinesh Bhindi said:

“Our dealers are stocked with Brand-New Mazda BT-50 Dual Cabs and we are very excited to showcase this new Ute to the local market. “With cutting-edge safety technology, impressive all-terrain performance and a smooth and efficient drivetrain, Brand-New BT-50 offers exceptional value across the range, while meeting the demands of the modern customer.”
