Well, here’s something totally unexpected. The truck you see here is none other than the new, yet-to-launch, Mazda BT-50 and it is spotted on our sister site, oto.my. We last saw the whole herd of BT-50 at Westport.
The ad is complete with details of the truck. It has a 3.2 litre turbodiesel that produces 197 hp at 3,000 rpm and 470 Nm torque at 1,750 rpm. The engine is mated to a six-speed automatic.
The ad goes on to tell you the other vital statistics of the truck, such as its height, width, wheelbase, ground clearance and weight.
The pictures displayed are enough to give you an idea how the BT-50 looks like. While the exterior is decisively Mazda, it is the interior that drops major hints that it shares parts with its Blue-Oval cousin. You’ll notice the buttons on the steering and the audio, the LCD screen in the middle of the centre console and the gear knob are reminiscent of the Ford Ranger.
More importantly, the ad also lists the price. This variant of the BT-50, with the 3.2 litre engine, goes for RM87,328. It is unclear if the price is inclusive of registration and insurance.
In any case, here’s the direct link to the ad. Take a look and tell us what you think.
