Mazda releases special edition BT-50 ute


The Mazda BT-50 Eclipse Special will go on sale in June 2011 in very limited numbers

Dressed in a Black Mica exterior, the BT-50 Double Cab SDX four wheel drive Eclipse Special Edition adds a range of exclusive features, including 20-inch Avanti Sabotage alloy wheels, chrome Sports Bar, lockable sports-lid with hydraulic struts, deck liner and a customised front bumper.

“We are very excited about the BT-50 Eclipse Special Edition,” says Glenn Harris, National Marketing Manager of Mazda New Zealand. “The model offers everything Kiwis have come to know and love about the BT-50 including the powerful engine, car-like handling, and its capacity for wide application. The addition of some unique features on the Eclipse Special Edition will elevate its appeal to a whole new level.”

The BT-50 Eclipse Special Edition is powered by a 3.0-litre MZR Common-Rail Direct-Injection Turbo Intercooled diesel engine which delivers 115kW of power and 380Nm of torque and an impressive braked towing capacity of 3000kg.

The vehicle also delivers active safety features such as 4-wheel Anti-Lock Braking (ABS), Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) and a Limited Slip Differential (LSD) to help maintain control regardless of the road or load conditions. The ute is also equipped with dual front and side SRS airbags for head and chest protection in the event of an accident.

Strictly limited to 30 units, the Mazda BT-50 Eclipse Special Edition is now available for order through Mazda dealers nationwide with promotional pricing starting from $43,990 (including GST, plus on road costs), valid until 30 June 2011.

The BT-50 Eclipse special edition comes standard with Mazda commercialcare providing a 3-year/100,000km Mazda Genuine Factory Warranty and Mazda On Call Roadside Assistance for a 3-year, unlimited kilometre term.
