2011 Mazda BT-50 Revealed At Australian International Motor Show
Oct 15, 2010

Mazda has today revealed the all-new 2011 BT-50 dual-cab, a vehicle that it expects will dramatically lift its market share of the lucrative commercial ute market.

Designed by Ryo Yanagisawa, the 2012 BT-50 sports a design that's worlds apart from the model on sale today, but closer in concept to Mazda's passenger vehicle range.

Subtly flared front fenders, almond-shaped rear lamp clusters and a five-pointed grille are all elements shared with the rest of Mazda's line-up, and while it's unusual to see a large work ute styled in such a way, there's no denying that the BT-50 has significant road presence.

It's not only a distinctive exterior that sets the new BT-50 apart from the current model, but its size. The new BT-50 has grown in almost every dimension, and the dual-cab ute is noticeably wider and longer.

The cabin is more car-like in appearance and less traditionally utilitarian, while rear seat room appears to be bigger.

Mazda says that the new BT-50 offers more leg, shoulder and knee room for its rear passengers than the Toyota Hilux, and although we were unable to sit in the prototype it certainly appears very commodious.

I like the back!

the front is a bit too swoopy for me but overall I think it looks great
