MAZDA BT-50 Used Car Review

In 2006, Mazda introduced a restyled version of its ageing Bravo ute and badged it BT-50. A new-generation model was then released in 2011, sharing significant components - such as platform and five-cylinder turbo diesel engine - with the Ford Ranger as part of a joint-venture. A 2013 update saw the BT-50 match the class-best braked towing capacity of 3500kg, while a 2018 upgrade introduced tougher front-end styling and new features.

Pros

Cons

  • Comfortable, practical, well-presented cabin
  • Good safety features from 2011 on
  • Multiple body style choices
  • Strong five-cylinder turbo diesel engine plus great towing capacity
  • Firm ride
  • Infotainment system inferior to other Mazda models

  • Common FAQs
  • The Mazda BT 50 is regarded as a rugged workhorse that combines reliability and practical performance with superior towing capabilities. It competes well with the leader in its category, the legendary Toyota HiLux, known for its toughness and dependability.
  • A 2019 Mazda BT 50 with a customised rear cab costs $43,490 on Gumtree, while a 2007 model is available for $6,500. By comparison, a 2019 model Holden Colorado Z71 can be driven off a showroom floor for $47,990.
  • In a collaboration with Ford, the Mazda BT 50s destined for Australian roads are made in Thailand. Not surprisingly then, the Ford Ranger, a key Mazda BT 50 competitor, is also made at AutoAlliance in Rayong, Thailand.
  • The top-of-the-range Mazda BT 50 is fittingly called the Boss, powered by a 3.2-litre five-cylinder turbo diesel engine. While the rest of the Mazda BT 50 range are equipped with 3.2-litre diesel engines.
  • In line with its robust performance, the various models of the Mazda BT 50 have braked towing capacities ranging from 2,500 kg to 3,500 kg. This is not unique with the Ford Ranger, for example, demonstrating equal capabilities.

SIMILAR MODELS TO MAZDA BT-50

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR: MAZDA BT-50 (2011 onwards)

Mechanically, the BT-50 is a twin to the Ford Ranger with the same driveline, suspension and many other major components.

The 3.2-litre five-cylinder is the most common variant on the second-hand market and dual-cab four-wheel-drive versions were popular and sold strongly.

So make sure any four-wheel-drive BT-50 hasn't been abused off-road by checking for damage underneath the vehicle.

Like many common-rail diesel engines, the Mazda's can experience problems with its fueI injectors, which can start to leak and require replacement.

The vehicle has also been known to go into limp-home mode if the fuel temperature rises beyond a set limit.

You also need to find out who has serviced the vehicle as the five-cylinder engine has an unconventional oil pump arrangement that will not tolerate long drain periods in the workshop.

Left too long with no oil in the sump, the pump will need to be re-primed, which is a complicated and relatively costly procedure.

And if it isn't, the engine can be damaged when re-started. Make sure the mechanic looking after the car knows this.
