Mazda BT-50 gets a new Boss

There’s a new pecking order for Mazda’s workhorse, with advanced audio and premium accessories qualifying Mazda BT-50 Boss for top spot in the line-up.

A ladder rung above the GT model on which it is based, the new BT-50 Boss adds a new sound system and a suite of black gloss accessories to compliment an already loaded offering.

Inside, the Boss is fitted with Alpine’s all-new S-Series carbon fibre reinforced plastic component speakers to deliver high-end, quality sound.

The eight-speaker setup includes four 6.5-inch speakers that feature High Amplitude Multi-Roll (HAMR) Surround technology for high linearity and accuracy. The rear speakers incorporate tweeters and at the front end, two independent 1-inch silk dome tweeters located in the A-pillar recreate pleasant upper range sound.

On the outside, unique styling sets the Boss apart; offered exclusively in Snowflake White Pearl Mica and fitted with contrasting all-black accessories, the new top-spec model holds a tough and assured road stance.

Chrome accents have been replaced with gloss black across the body, including the grille, door handles, mirror caps, sports bar and tubular side steps.

The Boss rolls on 17-inch 8-spoke black alloy wheels and adds a soft tonneau cover for increased security.

To further differentiate the top-end model, a bold black and white ‘Boss’ decal runs the length of the body.

Sharing all other equipment with the GT grade, the Boss comes with black leather trim, tailgate central locking, a tub liner, power mirrors, privacy glass, 12V auxiliary socket and light in the tub, 8-way power adjustment for the driver’s seat and smartphone mirroring technologies, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Mazda BT-50 boss is available exclusively in 4WD with a six-speed automatic transmission. With the MZ-CD 3.2-litre five-cylinder turbo-diesel engine under the bonnet, it offers 147kW at 3,000rpm and has 470Nm of pulling power between 1,750-2,250rpm.

Mazda BT-50 Boss is on sale now at a drive away price of $55,990.
