In the meantime, we can confirm a few basic details of the upgrade.

Going on sale from May, the BT-50 will see “significant front-end design changes”, according to Mazda.

These changes will see the doing away of the BT-50’s ‘curving lines’ and Mazda say this will strengthen the ute’s road stance.

The new-look front was designed and engineered locally by the Queensland-based EGR group.

Mazda Australia’s Managing Director, Vinesh Bhindi, said the refresh is an important step to take in a highly competitive segment.

“We’re always looking to improve and enhance the BT-50, to remain competitive and appealing to our customers,”

“This upgrade gives the BT-50 a stronger and tougher bearing, which we know Australians look for in a ute.”

Mazda also promising the updated BT-50 will also be offered with a range of new features and equipment.
