The Mazda fans will be glad to hear that the new BT-50 is on its way to hit the market as a 2019 model. According to the information we have got, the third-generation of the BT-50 truck is going to show some significant improvements in terms of styling, but also under its hood.
The 2019 Mazda BT-50 is expected to get some distinctive and modern features as the next-generation truck, although it has already been compared by many to the Ford Ranger model. However, it could become a serious competition to the Volkswagen Amarok, as we have been informed. When it comes to innovations, the new BT-50 will be using lightweight materials in building its chassis. Such a chassis of the reduced weight will only improve the acceleration, fuel efficiency and the total performance of the vehicle. Everything on this truck will be more fashionable, elegant and a bit aggressive. In the front fascia, there is a large, dominant grille made of stainless steel. The massive bumper has also been redesigned and you will also notice the halogen headlights and simple but modern fog lights. The new BT-50 is expected to stand on either 16-inch or 17-inch aluminum wheels.
What you can expect inside the 2019 Mazda BT-50 will definitely depend on the configuration and the trim you choose. However, one thing is for sure – you will not be disappointed. Whether you decide upon a two-door or a four-door cab, you will get plenty of space inside the cabin of the new 2019 Mazda BT-50. Spacious and comfortable, the cabin is also expected to be furnished with high-quality materials such as leather in higher trims or a black cloth in lower ones. It will be able to accommodate up to four or even five passengers and all of them will get large, comfortable and adjustable seats. The driver will also get a leather-wrapped steering wheel and a 7.8-inch touch screen in the center console. The latest infotainment system will be offering options such as navigation, audio system, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity and USB ports. A real treat, especially for younger population. When it comes to safety systems, the BT-50 will provide adaptive cruise control, seatbelts, airbags, antilock-braking system, lane departure warning, traction control system, blind-spot monitoring and others.
Two options have been discussed in terms of engine of the 2019 Mazda BT-50. The first of them is the well-known 3.2-liter five-cylinder turbo-diesel engine, able to deliver 198 horsepower and 347 pound-feet of torque. Another possibility would come with a 2.2-liter three-cylinder engine which produces 148 horsepower.
