If we consider latest reports about this popular truck, it all indicate that company is going to do a complete redesign for 2018 Mazda BT-50. This pickup originally came in 2006. Its first generation was compact in size. Next generation came in 2011 and it also became bigger. This model is now a mid-size pickup and it shares most of its characteristics with Ford Ranger. Company also did a facelift some time ago, when we saw some visual improvements. However, mechanical aspect of truck remained completely the same, which indicate that some bigger changes will come soon. The 2018 BT-50 should come completely new, with plenty of improvements in all aspects. Expect its arrival later next year.
2018 Mazda BT-50 redesign
As we already mentioned, company will most likely do a completely redesign. The 2018 Mazda BT-50 should come with plenty of significant changes. Exact details are still unknown, but we can make some predictions. We expect that Mazda will continue its cooperation with Ford, so two new models will once again share many prats. When it is about styling, we believe that the base shape will remain pretty similar. On the other side, 2018 BT-50 should feature completely new design language, same that is used for latest cars and crossovers of the brand. We expect same thing inside, where new truck should come with new cabin, which will have many improvements. It will be more spacious and with better styling. Also, we expect use of better materials, and many new features too.
2018 Mazda BT-50 engine
When it is about powertrain, we should see many improvements, in terms of power, economy and overall efficiency. Current model comes in two diesel variants, with Ford’s Duratorq engine. Base model features 2.2 liter inline-four unit, while straight-five engine is optional. For the next generation, we hope that some of company’s amazing SkyActive engines will be included. When it is about these two diesel units, they should carry over, but with some improvements, as we already mentioned.
2018 Mazda BT-50 release date and price
As we already mentioned, all these details about redesign are nothing more than rumors and some our predictions. If 2018 Mazda BT-50 come, its arrival date should be somewhere in the second half of next year. When it is about price, it is still hard to predict some more precise numbers, but we don’t expect bigger changes compared to current model, which goes in a range between 15.000 and 30.000 dollars, roughly.
