This pickup originally came in 2006. In that time, it was a compact truck. However, after redesign in 2011, it grown bigger. This model is now a mid-size pickup truck. It is closely related to Ford Ranger and most of the characteristics are shared between these two models. Current generation is in production since 2011, and last year we saw a facelift. This facelift brought mostly cosmetic changes, while mechanical part of the truck remained unchanged. For that reason, whole redesign is expected in near future. According to latest reports, redesigned model will come somewhere next year as 2017 Mazda BT-50.
