2020 Mazda BT-50

Mazda has pulled the wraps off its new BT-50 pickup truck, which is actually made by Isuzu.

The global premier of the new truck, which will be manufactured by Isuzu from its Thai plant, was held in Australia on June 17. Mazda said sales in Australia will start during the second half of this year.


In Thailand, Mazda has not confirmed launch dates, but stated that the new model will be introduced sometime later this year.

The new BT-50 comes with a 3.0-liter Isuzu turbo diesel engine capable of developing 190hp at 3,600rpm and 450Nm from 1,600-2,600rpm.

Apart from differences in design compared to the D-MAX, the BT-50 also comes with improvements in the suspension, which is expected to give it better driving dynamics than the Isuzu sibling.
