Mazda applies facelift on BT-50 pickup truck

Mazda has applied a minor nip & tuck o its BT-50 pickup truck which is based on the Ford Ranger. Far from being significant, the changes start at the front where we notice the headlights have adopted darker graphics while the grill has also gone through some revisions and now looks more like the ones fitted on to the company’s most recent models. Mazda has not provided an image with the car’s rear end, but we know they changed the taillight’s graphics to a dark cherry red look. Moreover, the interior cabin has gained a rearview mirror and has gone through some upgrades to provide a more upscale feel.

As far as the engines are concerned, the 2016 Mazda BT-50 pickup truck will likely continue with a 2.2-liter four-cylinder turbodiesel unit outputting 160 PS and 385 Nm as well as with the larger 3.2-liter turbodiesel which pumps out 200 PS and a maximum torque of 470 Nm.

The “active lifestyle vehicle” has already reached the assembly line in Thailand and will initially go on sale over there and in Australia while other markets will be added shortly after that, with full details to be disclosed closer to the model’s launch.
