Mazda PH Expands BT-50 Pangolin Edition To 4x2 Models For 2021


Late last year, Mazda Philippines released a special edition of its long-serving BT-50 pickup truck to raise awareness on the plight of the Philippine Pangolin—a critically-endangered species endemic to Palawan. At the time, the appearance package was exclusive to the 4x4 variant. For 2021, they’re now making it available in 4x2 guise as well.

With Mazda selling out its entire fleet of BT-50 4x4, they have decided to continue their partnership with the Philippine Pangolin’s protectors, the Katala Foundation, with the introduction of the 2021 BT-50 4x2 Pangolin Edition.

Like its 4x4 counterpart, the BT-50 4x2 Pangolin Edition carries a sticker of its mammalian namesake, only this time, it’s been reduced in size. Previously, it took the space of both the front and rear doors; now, it’s been shrunk to cover a spot on the rear quarter panel only.


Along with the reduced pangolin sticker, Mazda has also removed the roof basket, while the tubular sports bar remains. The BT-50 4x2 Pangolin also gets black fender wheel arch extensions along with 17-inch Rota Reece Reloaded wheels and 265/65 R 17 tires.

Inside, the BT-50 4x2 Pangolin sports leather seats along with automatic headlamps, rain-sensing wipers, auto dimming rear view mirror, dual-zone climate control, and a 7-inch touchscreen display infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Powering the BT-50 4x2 Pangolin is a 2.2-liter 4-cylinder turbodiesel engine with 150 horsepower and 375 Nm of torque. And unlike its 4x4 counterpart, this one is available in both manual and automatic transmission guise (both with six forward gears). It also comes with dual SRS airbags, ABS with EBD, stability control, and rear parking sensors.


Pricing for the 2021 BT-50 4x2 Pangolin starts at P 1,350,000 for the M/T and P 1,395,000 for the A/T. It comes in six colors: Cool White, True Red, Aluminum Metallic, Jet Black, Deep Crystal Blue, and Titanium Flash.

  1. They're just trying to sell all the old stocks since the latest model/generation is about to launch.
