Given the fact there are no changes to the BT-50 for the 2023 model, there are no pricing changes either.
When it comes to its rivals, the Mazda represents solid value for money. It is more expensive than models like the older Mitsubishi Triton and Nissan Navara, but it is on par with its twin, the Isuzu D-Max.
It is more affordable than the new-gen Ranger that runs from $35,930 to all the way up to $85,490 for the Raptor.
Across the model range, standard gear varies greatly depending on the grade, but starting from the XS, equipment includes power adjustable mirrors, power windows, black cloth trim, LED headlights, a 7.0-inch colour touchscreen multimedia system, Apple CarPlay (wireless) and Android Auto, Bluetooth, digital radio, and a reversing camera.
Higher up in the GT you’ll get an eight-way power adjustable driver’s seat, leather trim, heated front seats, remote engine start and front parking sensors.
The Thunder tops the range with 18-inch alloy wheels, a 20-inch lightbar, a roller tonneau cover, black side steps and fender flares and more.
Mazda offers no fewer than 12 accessory options packs for the BT-50, with each one available on selected grades and body styles. They include basic offerings like the Boss Protection Pack ($1152) that includes rubber floor mats, bonnet and headlight protectors and scuff plates.
There’s also mid-range packs like the Boss Touring Pack (from $10,386) with a tow bar kit, canopy, a polished nudge bar and Lightforce driving lights.
If you want to spend a bit more and really trick out your BT-50, there is the Boss Adventure pack (from $14,145) that includes black steel bull bar with hoops, Lightforce driving lights, electric roller tonneau cover, a black sports bar with an adaptor kit for the tonneau cover, tub racks and more.
You can buy individual accessories, of course, like the tow bar, bull bar, suspension upgrade, canopies, lighting, tub-liners and more.
