Named the Mazda BT-50 4x4 Pangolin Edition 2, the Japanese automotive manufacturer’s local arm said that the newest offering “further enhances the urban pickup truck infused with Mazda’s Kodo: Soul of Motion design.”
Its launch coincides with Mazda Philippines’s decision to extend the partnership with the Katala Foundation. The alliance, which started in 2020, led to Mazda Philippines lending a BT-50 to the non-stock, non-profit Palawan-based organization.
“The Mazda BT-50 brought unrivaled design, comfort, and capability to the popular pickup truck segment when we launched it in November 2021. One year later, it is only appropriate that we mark its anniversary with the return of the BT-50 4x4 Pangolin Edition 2,” Mazda Philippines President and Chief Executive Officer Steven Tan was quoted as saying.
“We have been extremely pleased with how the all-new BT-50 has been received since its launch. After listening to customer feedback, we have created the BT-50 4x4 Pangolin Edition 2 which builds on the BT-50’s core strengths. Like the first BT-50 Pangolin, it is also an acknowledgement of the important role we have in preserving the delicate balance of our environment as we go about our daily lives,” he added.
In a statement, Mazda Philippines said that the BT-50 4x4 Pangolin Edition 2 wears exclusively-manufactured 18-inch Rota gloss black alloy wheels with a Pangolin center cap. The wheels (which have a 10-millimeter additional offset) sit with the standard black fender flares and body-colored side stepboards.
The Japanese pick-up truck’s new accessory package sports a two-tone black/body-colored fashion bar that improves the aerodynamic air flow towards the back of the pickup truck and gives the vehicle a sport-utility-vehicle-like profile.
The generous tub at the back features a bedliner, lockable revolver bed cover and a new tailgate assist function.
Complementing the vehicle’s hauling capability is the 3.0-liter turbo diesel four-cylinder engine that can deliver up to 187 horsepower as well as 450Nm of torque. It is mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox.
Further, the Mazda BT-50 4x4 Pangolin Edition 2 has the electronically-controlled drive selector along with the electronic rear differential lock.
Just like every BT-50 trim, the recently-introduced 4x4 Pangolin Edition 2 is fitted with the Mazda Active Safety Technology (MAST) that includes adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, autonomous emergency braking, Lane departure warning, auto high beam control, and blind spot monitoring with rear cross traffic alert, to match the seven airbags and electronic stability control.
Moreover, the Mazda BT-50 4x4 Pangolin Edition 2 is packaged with a five-year free service plan (that covers the expenses of periodic maintenance at either six-month or 10,000-kilometer intervals, in a span of five years or 100,000 kilometers, whichever comes first) and the three-year bumper-to-bumper warranty.
Offered as a factory-installed accessory package solely for the Mazda BT-50 4x4 option, the Pangolin Edition 2 is available at a special price of P68,000 for the first 100 customers. This is on top of the BT-50 4x4’s P1.79-million price tag.
