Our previous BT-50 XT review was published before Mazda Australia announced pricing for the single-cab and extra-cab (Freestyle Cab in Mazda speak). We know you mightn’t be looking at exactly this spec of BT-50 XT - the automatic 4x4 single cab-chassis - so we’ve got a pricing list for the single-cab and extra-cab models below.
|Mazda BT-50 XT|
|Drivetrain||Body type||Transmission||RRP||Drive-away price|
|4x2||Single Cab Chassis||Automatic||$36,550||$39,990|
|FreeStyle Cab Chassis||Automatic||$40,050||$43,490|
|4x4||Single Cab Chassis||Manual||$41,550||$44,990|
|Freestyle Cab Chassis||Manual||$45,050||$48,490|
Standard equipment for the XT comprises: 17-inch alloy wheels (no steel wheels here!), LED headlights but halogen daytime running lights, power-adjustable mirrors, body coloured door handles and mirror caps, body colour bumpers and a questionable rear step bumper - it really is a useless addition.
Other standard gear includes a 4.2-inch driver display with digital speedometer, black cloth interior trim, carpet flooring (not vinyl), and all XT models have a 7.0-inch multimedia touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay, wired Android Auto, and digital radio. There’s manual air-conditioning, power windows, rain sensing automatic wipers, and a polyurethane steering wheel with tilt and reach/telescopic adjust.
A reversing camera is standard on cab-chassis models, but they miss out on parking sensors.
Tray choice is a matter of preference, but the 2550mm Standard Steel Tray fitted to our test vehicle was a $5100 (fitted) added cost. Meaning the price of our 4x4 auto XT Cab Chassis single cab was, as tested, $49,150 before on-road costs. Yikes.
Other accessories available include bull bar and nudge bar options, mud flaps, tray liner mats, body protection, a snorkel, side steps, and - of course - floor mats.
Colour options include the Ice White Solid you see here, which will be the most popular of all the no-cost paint options for the BT-50. There’s also Red Volcano mica, Concrete Grey mica, Gunblue mica, Rock Grey mica, Ingot Silver metallic and True Black mica.
