The Mazda BT-50 has been recently launched in Malaysia where the model is available for its future customers starting at RM89,841.60.
According to the Japanese based automaker, the Mazda BT-50 is available with two engine options in Malaysia, the 2.2 liter common rail diesel, which is producing a total output of 150 PS and it has a peak torque of 375 Nm available between 1,500 rpm and 2,500 rpm and a larger 3.2 liter five-cylinder diesel unit, generating 200 PS and 470 Nm of torque from 1,750 rpm to 2,500 rpm. For the smaller engine, either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission is available, while the 3.2L is only getting the automatic gearbox.
Mazda says that the BT-50 is 5,365 mm long, 1,850 mm wide and it rides on a 3,220 mm wheelbase, which is almost identical to the Ford Range R6. The Japanese truck has other parts shared with the German vehicle, but in the cabin this time.
