New and Used Mazda BT-50 for Sale Philippines
Mazda defines its new BT-50 as “Definitely big and bold but delivers pure driving pleasure.” Indeed, the 2016 Mazda BT-50 is all that—and much, much more. The Mazda BT-50 2016 has a powerful engine that can be a bit noisy and gruff at times. However, it's a small price to pay if you really want a vehicle that really works for you. And by really we mean just that -- REALLY.
This car is commonly called a “ute” in Australia and New Zealand as an abbreviation for "utility" or "coupé utility". Keep in mind that utes aren't really designed for those who like to do a gentle cruise and drive around the metro at all times. No, utes are workhorses, and they thrive when they're challenged to their limits. This means that the new Mazda BT-50 is better with some weight placed on its tub or rear tray to keep the rear springs in tip-top shape. In short, it likes heavy loads and terrain. If you've always dreamed what it's like to become a cowboy and adventurer at the same time, then a new or 2nd hand Mazda BT-50 is definitely for you.
The 2016 Mazda BT-50 model is a compact pickup truck produced by the Japanese manufacturer since 2006. Ford sold a version of the first-generation BT-50 and rebadged it as the Ford Ranger. In contrast, the second generation BT-50, which started its run in 2011, is a derivative of the Ranger designed by Ford Australia. The Mazda BT-50 2016 is the current year model released in the Philippines. It still retains its previous macho coolness, even raising it ‘scorching high’ to some degree. This truck has also received a few recognitions along the way, such as winning the coveted 2012-2013 Truck of the Year Award by the Car Awards Group Inc. Pickups aren’t really a huge seller in the Philippine market, as compacts and SUVs practically rule the roost. Nevertheless, the Mazda BT-50 Philippines does have its fair share of rivals, with the Ford Ranger vs Toyota Hilux vs Nissan Navara being tough competitors.

Mazda BT-50 Review in the Philippines
Mazda BT-50 Specs and Performance
The updated Mazda BT-50 utility vehicle comprises three body variants: single cab, dual cab and freestyle cab. Between these three body styles are 23 variants, however, only three are made available to the Philippine market: a 4x4 AT, 4x2 AT and 4x2 MT. Two types of engines are on offer—a 3.2L I5 and a 2.2L i4. These two Mazda BT-50 engine types produce 200 hp and 355 Nm of torque. The Mazda BT-50 suspension system employs an independent double wishbone with coil springs at the front and rigid leaf springs at the rear. When driven, the BT-50 immediately lets you know how powerful it is. Power and torque delivery is quite impressive, although there’s a bit of lag in the shifting of the automatic transmission that takes a while to get used to. Road comfort is good, although a bit stiffer than more upscale pickups in the market.
