All-New Mazda BT-50 Cab at AIMS 2011

The 2011 International Motor Show the global debut for the All-New BT-50 Freestyle Cab.

the revolutionary Freestyle door first seen on the RX-8, the Freestyle Cab offers a unique of seating for four, an exceptionally pillar-less door opening, and a carrying capacity.

On each of the cabin, a front-hinged door and a access panel combine to a 1,408mm-wide opening that for easy entry to and exit either the front or rear

Rear-seat comfort has been to levels never seen in the Freestyle Cab. Cushions been lengthened by 50mm for thigh support and stable of child seats while the height has been increased by

The rear seat cushions can be and with the rear access opening to an angle of nearly 90 the option of loading and storing into the rear seating of the cab has never been easier.

A advantage of the All-New BT-50 Cab is its capacious carrying capacity. The walls of the cargo box were to improve the styling with a sporty, wedge-shaped profile. change, together with width and length resulted in an cargo volume of 1,453 an increase of 266 litres over the current model.

The inner walls of the current cargo box have an acclaimed that allows the space in the box to be used for diverse purposes and design has been carried with the new BT-50.

Improved and carrying capacity

Increases in all dimensions of the All-New BT-50 Cab make it superior to the current model for comfort and carrying Overall height has increased by to 1,706mm, overall width has by 135mm to 1,850mm and overall has increased by 204mm to 5,373mm.

has also been improved as a of an increase in wheelbase. The wheelbase has by 220mm.

Increases in the interior of the All-New BT-50 Freestyle Cab that it is one of the most comfortable and in its class. Front effective has grown by 10mm to now measure while front shoulder has increased by 30mm to 1,440mm.

is also now more space rear passengers than and the effective rear leg room in the Cab is also improved. An increase of means that rear have 796mm of leg room.

As with all Mazda vehicles, a comfortable driving position was a focus during development. The seat is extensively adjustable, so a of any size can achieve the most position. The front passenger has some of the same types of so a passenger can enjoy the ride in a that minimises fatigue.

The cabin length has enabled an in the fore-aft slide range of the seat and front passenger from 240mm to 260mm in Dual Cab and Freestyle Cab.

New advanced diesel engines significant increases in power and with improved fuel will ensure the All-New BT-50 range has the grunt to even the toughest tasks.

The act for the All-New BT-50 range is the new 3.2 litre diesel engine, 5-cylinder configuration, delivering a 470Nm of torque and 147kW of This represents a 24 per cent in torque while power is up by 28 per over the current BT-50#8242;s 3.0 diesel engine.

The adoption of a new fuel system combined advanced turbocharging ensures the 3.2 diesel engine delivers a refined and responsive drive. refinements also help to that the new MZ-CD 3.2 litre will be more fuel than the 3.0 litre diesel it replaces.

The new 3.2 litre engine will be to a new 6-speed transmission that has developed to exhibit low levels of vibration and harshness making for a and quieter ride.

The new powertrains been developed to ensure the BT-50 delivers towing never before seen on type of vehicle. The 3.2 litre with either manual or transmission will be capable of up to a huge 3,350kg (braked capacity) delivering a 350kg over the current model.

details on model line-up and choices will be released to launch.

Increased ride and NVH improvements

The All-New BT-50 over the same sturdy frame configuration of the current but has now been completely re-designed. A of rigidity improvements now provide for nimbleness and ride comfort.

The side rails have made taller, wider and Consequently, the frame has much levels of rigidity (about 2.6 the flexural rigidity and about 2.1 the torsional rigidity of the current frame). High rigidity in the areas on which parts are has also been assured, realising linear vehicle and superior quietness.

The cab mounts that join the to the frame suppress the transmission of longitudinal, and lateral oscillation to the The front mounts are solid like those of the current The left and right-hand mounts the pillars at the back of the cabin are now

There#8217;s no at other frequencies, so it was possible to the dynamic spring constant at and higher (the frequency relevant to booming and other of noise). Since the damping and dynamic spring constant was to be tuned separately, it became to simultaneously improve ride and suppress noise, vibration, and (NVH).

Further comprehensive have been taken to NVH in order to achieve the kind of comfortable driving experience expected in passenger cars.

Since vibration inputs to the have been reduced, in the cabin by the driver#8217;s window is by around 15 per cent from the BT-50. Vibration in the seat and vibration in the steering wheel are half of what they are in the BT-50.

To reduce booming and noise, the rigidity of the brackets and that join the cabin to the has been increased. The higher works with the softer and transmission mounts to limit of noise and vibration to the cabin the vehicle is moving.

Australia managing director, Dickson, points to the significance of global unveiling. #8220;Just as we delighted to be given the privilege of the global debut of the All-New Dual Cab in Sydney last we are equally delighted to be hosting the debut of the Freestyle Cab in Melbourne year. With Australia to be the largest market for the All-New it#8217;s no coincidence that been asked to host not one but two unveilings of this important new It#8217;s only appropriate the Australian public see it first.#8221;

The Mazda BT-50 will go on later this year.
