New Mazda BT-50 2021 to be officially unveiled in days! Here’s when you’ll get a proper look at the redesigned Toyota HiLux rival
Mazda has confirmed it will rip the covers off its new BT-50 ute on June 17 at 11am AEST with an official shadowy teaser image released to social media today.
What is already known is that the new BT-50 will share its underpinnings with the new Isuzu D-Max, which is due to go on sale next month, and could also share the same turbo-diesel engine and transmission – a 3.0-litre four-cylinder engine outputting 140kW/450Nm, paired with a six-speed gearbox.
Mazda has said in the past it can adapt its Kodo design language to the boxy and utilitarian body of a ladder-frame chassis pick-up, so expect to see the new BT-50 sport similar styling to the likes of the CX-9 and CX-5 SUVs.
Other details such as interior, towing capacity, fuel economy and suspension changes are not yet known, but expect Mazda to reveal all next week.
