Here's what the new Mazda BT-50 has to offer

KUALA LUMPUR: We consider the Thai-market to be extremely lucky, as it is often the first amongst the ASEAN market to receive a facelift or a new model altogether. So, after benefiting from the BMW 5 Series sedan, the Thai-market is on the receiving end of the all-new Mazda MT-50 pickup.

The new Mazda MT-50 seems to be a perfect fit for Thailand, as pickups make 50 percent of the country's new vehicle sales.

The Thai-spec Mazda MT-50 is available in two engine options and 14 variants. The two MT-50 variants out of 14 are powered by a 3.0-litre turbodiesel mill making a maximum power of 195 hp and a peak torque of 450 Nm. Rest 12 variants of the pickup are fueled by 1.9-litre turbodiesel engine that pumps out 150 hp and 350 Nm of torque. On the transmission front, both the mills can be paired with either a 6-speed manual or automatic gearbox.
