There wasn’t any official launch by Bermaz, but readers of this site would have already learned a fair bit about the new Mazda BT-50, thanks to an ad on and an official Bermaz brochure/price list we posted up last month.

As a recap, the new BT-50 sports distinctive “Sophisticated Beast” styling that will never be mistaken for any other truck in the market. If it appears huge, it is, measuring 5,365 mm long and 1,850 mm wide, with a 3,220 mm wheelbase. The latter figure is class leading and identical to the new Ford Ranger T6. The cabin also shares some parts with Ford – go ahead and spot them.

There are two engine options – an 2.2 litre common rail diesel (150 PS and 375 Nm from 1,500 to 2,500 rpm) and a 3.2L five-cylinder diesel with 200 PS and 470 Nm of torque from 1,750 to 2,500 rpm. Once again, Ranger owners will find these engines and figures familiar. Buyers of the 2.2L can choose between a manual or auto gearbox, both six speeders, but the 3.2L is auto-only.

As for the specs, we’ve scanned the equipment list for both the 2.2 and 3.2, which you can view after the jump, along with a full live gallery of the truck from every angle, taken when I was at the new Mazda 4S Centre for the Bermaz-Mazda Motor Corp JV announcement event this morning.

The Mazda BT-50 range starts from RM89,841.60 for the 2.2 MT, rising to RM107,051.75 for the 3.2, OTR including insurance.
