...in Australia. You tease.
From Leftlane News:
The outgoing 2.2-liter four-cylinder gas engine is gone from the BT-50′s spec sheet, although it will remain available on the Ranger. In its place in the Mazda are a pair of new oil-burning diesels, which make the BT-50 one of the most powerful offerings in its class in Australia.
The big news is the new 3.2-liter inline-five cylinder already offered in the Ford Transit van (which is unrelated to the smaller Ford Transit Connect sold in North America). Developing 197 horsepower and, more importantly, 347 lb-ft. of torque, the new MZ-CD engine is more than 25 percent torquier and more powerful than the outgoing 3.0-liter unit. In addition, it will give the BT-50 a 7,500 lbs. tow rating, a match for the Ranger.
In addition, a 148 horsepower, 276 lb-ft. of torque 2.2-liter four-cylinder turbodiesel will also be new to the range. The entry-level engine will still be capable of an impressive 5,500 lbs. towing capacity.
It might be the ugliest truck ever.
The "smile" is atrocious, and the taillights are too car like.
It looks like a truck...in drag.
