Mazda Australia has added two new accessory packs to suit its upper-spec BT-50 SP and Thunder variants, with the packs available to order from July 2023 at dealers nationwide.

The two packs available are the BT-50 SP Pro enhancement pack, priced at $7668 (recommended fitting price), and the BT-50 Thunder Pro pack, priced at $9046 (recommended fitting price).

Key to the SP Pro enhancement pack is the addition of Nitrocharger suspension, which incorporates upgraded springs paired with twin-tube shock absorbers. This set-up improves the BT-50 SP’s off- and on-road ability and gives it up to two inches of extra lift.

Mazda Australia says these modifications “have been rigorously tested to ensure that the vehicle lift does not impact any safety systems, including the standard-fit ABS and electronic stability ontrol”.

In addition to the upgraded suspension, the SP Pro pack includes exclusive new 18-inch wheels, a Lightforce LED lightbar (1 lux at 569m) integrated in the front grille, and SP Pro decals on the exterior lower flank.

For the BT-50 Thunder, the Pro pack adds an Old Man Emu BP-51 suspension system - nitrogen-filled dampers with a remote reservoir - that has been locally developed, tested and tuned by the Mazda Australia engineering team.

The kit can be manually adjustable for both compression and rebound, which means users can easily customise the system depending on loads.

The Thunder Pro pack also comes with a snorkel, Lightforce LED driving lights (1 lux at 1100m), and Thunder Pro decals on the exterior.

Both accessory packs can be fitted retrospectively to existing vehicles with a two-year warranty. However, that increases to a five-year/unlimited-kilometre warranty if the pack is ticked as part of a new vehicle order - provided the packs are fitted upon delivery.
