Perhaps the most stylish pick-up truck in its segment, the all-new 2022 Mazda BT-50, will be launching in Malaysia later this week.
At launch, two variants will be offered – the 1.9-litre High Double Cab and 3.0 High Plus Double Cab, priced at RM 124,179 and RM 143,218, respectively.
Variant-to-variant, both variants of the all-new Mazda BT-50 1.9 are marginally more expensive than their Isuzu D-Max counterparts (RM 121,549 to RM 141,938). It remains to be seen what features will separate the Mazda and Isuzu pick-up trucks.
Just like its sibling model, the Isuzu D-Max, the 2022 Mazda BT-50 is fully imported (CBU) from Thailand. Sales and service tax (SST) discounted prices do not apply for the BT-50, as it is only applicable for passenger cars. Commercial vehicles like pick-up trucks don't qualify for the exemption.
Seeing that the 2022 Mazda BT-50 is based on the equally-new Isuzu D-Max, the Mazda-badged truck carries over the same powertrains.
The first is a turbodiesel 1.9-litre that does 150 PS and 350 Nm, while the larger 3.0-litre unit is capable of delivering 190 PS and 450 Nm. Both engines are paired to a 6-speed automatic.
It remains to be seen what features the Malaysian-spec Mazda BT-50 will be getting, but over in Thailand, the BT-50 is loaded to the brim with features like an 8-way power-adjustable driver seat, 8 speakers, as well as a 9-inch infotainment display with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support.
