Given the fact that there are no changes to the BT-50 for the 2023 model year, there is no change in price either.
It ranges in price from $33,950 for the base single-cab 4×2 XS chassis to $71,290 for the dual-cab 4×4 Thunder pickup.
As for the competition, Mazda represents solid value for money. It’s more expensive than the likes of the older Mitsubishi Triton and Nissan Navara, but it’s on a par with its Isuzu D-Max twin.
It’s more affordable than the next-generation Ranger, which costs $35,930 to $85,490 for the Raptor.
Standard equipment varies significantly across the lineup, but starting with the XS, equipment includes power mirrors, power windows, black cloth upholstery, LED headlights, a 7.0-inch color touchscreen infotainment system, Apple CarPlay (wireless ). and Android Auto, Bluetooth, digital radio and a rearview camera.
Moving up to the GT, you’ll get an eight-way power driver’s seat, leather trim, heated front seats, remote engine start and front parking sensors.
Thunder tops the range with 18-inch alloy wheels, 20-inch light bar, roll cover, black side steps and fender flares, and more.
Mazda offers no fewer than 12 accessory packages for the BT-50, each available for selected trim levels and body styles. These include basic offerings such as the Boss Protection Pack ($1,152), which includes rubber floor mats, hood and headlight protectors, and door sill plates.
There are also mid-range packages like the Boss Touring Pack (starting at $10,386) with a towbar kit, canopy, polished push handle and Lightforce headlights.
If you want to spend a little more and really trick out your BT-50, there’s the Boss Adventure Package (starting at $14,145), which includes a black steel hoop with rings, Lightforce headlights, an electric roller cover, a black sports bar with a set of adapters for dome covers, bath shelves, etc.
Of course, you can purchase individual accessories such as a towbar, bow, suspension upgrades, canopies, lighting, tub liners, and more.
