Mazda BT-50 2022

The 2022 Mazda BT-50 range of configurations is currently priced from $33,650. Our most recent review of the 2022 Mazda BT-50 resulted in a score of 6.5 out of 10 for that particular example.

Carsguide Contributing Journalist David Morley had this to say at the time: Decontenting is a dirty word in the car game and while the move to a smaller engine to shave a few dollars off the price-tag hasn't ruined the BT-50, it has taken the edge off its towing and performance capabilities. More than that, however, it's still more expensive than some of its competition, including its close mechanical relation the Isuzu D-Max which can be had with the 3.0-litre engine and full 3.5-tonne towing capacity with a couple of hundred dollars change for a tank of diesel.

This is what David Morley liked most about this particular version of the Mazda BT-50: Looks good inside and out with a quality feel, Very capable off-road, XS model can be had in 4x4 dual-cab form

The Mazda BT-50 2022 comes in a Dual Cab and Single Cab and competes with similar models like the Ford Ranger, Mitsubishi Triton and Toyota HiLux in the Under $50k category category.

The 2022 Mazda BT-50 carries a braked towing capacity of up to 3500 Kg, but check to ensure this applies to the configuration you're considering.

Mazda BT-50 2022 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Mazda BT-50 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Why is my 2016 Mazda BT-50 3.2-litre using 14 litres per 100kms?

    Unless you’ve changed the way you drive, a sudden jump in fuel economy suggests something wrong with either the mechanical or electronic side of things. Have the vehicle scanned and see if it throws any fault codes. From there, you can work out what component is giving you grief and target the problem accurately, rather than mess around for weeks flying blind.

    One reason for the sharp increase in fuel consumption could be that the vehicle’s diesel particulate filter (DPF) is full and needs to be regenerated. If you’re not doing long, highway miles, the computer can take matters into its own hands and dump extra fuel into the exhaust system in an attempt to get the exhaust hot enough to regenerate the filter. But you could also be dealing with a faulty fuel-pressure regulator, worn injectors or even something as simple as a blocked air filter.

  • What do I do if a dealer gives me and incorrect quote?

    This is one of the problems with the way the prices of band-new vehicles are haggled over. Had there been just a simple checkout price (as there is with nearly everything else we buy) this confusion probably wouldn’t have crept in. I take that, having asked for the tray upgrade, you then paid attention only to the final price being offered by the dealer.

    Regardless of whether the dealer is trying to stall you with talk of a two month wait is a side issue. And perhaps you can hold out and force the dealer to supply the vehicle as per your contract of sale. Then again, if the mistake was a genuine one by a member of the sales staff (who could conceivably lose their job over such a blunder) then what’s the moral solution? Perhaps there’s a compromise to be made by both parties. I can understand you not wanting to pay an extra $7000 for a different type of tray, but surely that’s not the best result for anybody. In an ideal world, perhaps one solution would be for the dealer to provide the tray at their cost price (so they don’t lose money on the deal) and you get a cheap(er) tray because you’re not paying retail. Yes, it’s complicated. But that’s what happens when commerce meets karma.

  • Why is my 2012 Mazda BT-50 making a scraping noise?

    This is indeed a known problem on these transmissions and one for which Mazda issued a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB; like a recall but not safety related) back in 2014. Apparently, a problem with the valve-body (that controls the gearbox’s shifts) caused a scraping or buzzing noise usually when shifting form Park to Drive or Reverse. That’s not exactly what you’re reporting, but it’s almost too similar not to be related. Depending on the build date of the vehicle, Mazda either replaced part of the entire valve-body assembly.

    The other problem you’ve alluded to; that of a faulty output speed sensor is a different issue to the one that sounds like it’s causing your problem. In the case of the dud sensor, the gearbox could suddenly decide to shift back to first gear unannounced. If that happened at speed, it could cause the vehicle’s wheels to lock up with some very interesting consequences.
