Mazda BT-50 Thunder on sale in April

The 2021 Mazda BT-50 Thunder goes on sale with pricing from $65,990 drive-away.

The new model results in the new Mazda BT-50 going head-to-head with the Isuzu D-Max X-Terrain.

Both models share the same drive-train and are made on the same Isuzu production line in Thailand.

Based on the BT-50 GT dual-cab 4x4, the Thunder version adds an impressive line-up of extras that have been designed by Mazda's engineering team in Australia.

The Thunder comes a price that is $9000 more expensive than the standard GT but with $13,000 worth of additional equipment has been added.

Changes include a single-hoop steel bull-bar, a Lightforce LED light-bar, black 18-inch alloys, wheel-arch flares and matte black side steps.

A 'premium' sports bar, an electrically-operated roller tonneau cover and a tub liner are also part of the package, and the model is distinguished by Thunder decals on the rear fenders.

Those additions combine to create Mazda's rival to other flagship dual-cab utes such as the Australian-developed Toyota HiLux Rugged X and Nissan Navara N-Trek Warrior.

However, unlike the Toyota and Nissan which have parts added at production facilities in Melbourne before the vehicles are delivered to showrooms, the Thunder's add-ons are installed by dealers similar to the wider BT-50 range's 100-strong accessory catalogue, from which many of the Thunder's parts can be optioned individually on a standard BT-50 model.

Standard equipment, engine power, and suspension are unchanged from the GT on which the range-topping Thunder is based.
