The Mazda BT-50 (model code J97M) is a compact/mid-sized pickup truck produced by the Japanese manufacturer Mazda since 2006. From 2011 the second-generation Ranger has been designed by Ford Australia, with a Mazda derivative sold as the BT-50.
It shares its Duratorq/MZR-CD 2.5- and 3.0-liter diesel inline-four engines with the Ranger. In late November 2006, the new five-speed automatic transmission with Borg Warner transfer case has been added, as well as side airbags. It is available with either a 2.5-litre turbodiesel with 143 PS (105 kW; 141 hp) or a 3.0-litre turbodiesel with 156 PS (115 kW; 154 hp). It is very consuming at over 15l/100km, but it is big and very safe and can carry a heavy load, up to 1t.
