2024 Mazda BT-50 Added Ability


A raft of enhancements have broadened the Mazda BT-50’s appeal as a go-anywhere tourer or 4WD track companion.

Fitted on all 4x4 model grades, the addition of a Rough Terrain Mode optimises the Mazda BT-50’s traction control when off-roading, for greater management and precision in difficult conditions.

Engaged via a separate button located next to the gear shifter, Rough Terrain Mode will modulate throttle and brake inputs instantaneously when it senses the ute coming off idle, therefore intervening before wheel spin can occur to transfer torque to the wheels with most traction without any delay.

The new mode works in harmony with the locking rear differential and Hill Descent Control fitted as standard to all four-wheel drive variants, ensuring exceptional traction and dependability on even the harshest tracks.

The ever-practical Dual Cab Chassis layout can now also be ordered in GT specification for the first time on a Mazda BT-50. Building on the already ample XTR model grade with its LED headlamps, dual-zone climate control, 9-inch touchscreen and leather-bound steering wheel and gear knob, the GT gains chrome-finished heated exterior mirrors, heated front seats and brown leather seat trim.

Rounding out the GT specification is a remote start function, operable via the key fob.

“Our comprehensively specified GT model grade brings with it several welcome extras that provide added comfort and refinement for the driver and occupants, while the ‘blank canvas’ of the cab chassis opens up endless options for customisation at the rear. Putting the two together gives our customers yet another opportunity to fulfil their favourite pursuits and live the ‘You Do Ute’ philosophy,” commented Vinesh Bhindi, Managing Director of Mazda Australia.

Another useful upgrade applicable to XTR models and above is the ability for accessories such as lights and the audio system to remain powered after engine shut-off, ensuring extra convenience when setting up camp or pausing during extended road trips. 

Elsewhere, XS and XT models also now gain auto relock functionality for added convenience and peace of mind – a feature already fitted as standard on XTR models and above with advanced keyless entry.

Pricing remains the same across the board, except for the Mazda BT-50 SP model, which increases by a modest $30.

Additionally, the Mazda BT-50 XT Dual Cab Pickup 4x4 manual and SP Dual Cab Pickup 4x4 auto currently offer compelling driveaway pricing available for ABN holders, as part of the Mazda EOFY Driveaway Event ending 30th June 2024.
