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.
