Used Mazda Fighter – 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002 Pickup available at Jim Autos Thailand
Mazda Fighter or B-Series Intro
No other commercial vehicle in the world can provide you the fun and satisfaction that the Mazda Fighter can. Better than your wildest expectations the Mazda Fighter is the ultimate class leader. It is available on request at Thailand’s top 4×4 pickup and SUV dealer, importer and exporter Jim Autos Thailand.
Mazda had revamped the B2500 Fighter 4WD truck. And many steps had been taken to bring about a fresh new look. Exterior-wise, there is now a two-tone colour scheme and the roll-bar at the rear is now colour-coded for a harmonious effect. The effect is completed by distinctive 16-inch alloy wheels that are shod with Sime Alpina tyres.
The familiar 2.5-litre intercooled trubodiesel with indirect fuel injection had been improved: a 12-valve single camshaft unit that delivers more power at 121 bhp at 3500rpm (from 117bhp) and 262 Nm of torque at 2000rpm.
The Fighter has a five-speed manual transmission. The suspension is basically similar to the previous model with an independent double wishbone front supported by torsion bar and tubular double acting shock absorbers. The rear is served by rigid leafsprings with double acting shock absorbers. Its is in the tuning of the suspension that separates it from the old.
Significant changes included an anti-lock brake system (BS) for the standard front discs rear drums brake arrangement, dual airbags for front occupants, stronger side impact beams in the doors and limited slip differential.
On the road, the ride comfort is impressive. Rear passengers are not tossed about like basketball over bumps and there is no noticeable pitching on the highway due to irregular road surfaces.
Torque is great, gives you quick charge for a turbo diesel. Intrusion of engine noise is also kept to a minimum and you can cruise along on the highway and enjoy the music without increasing the music volume.
The new Mazda Fighter is as attractively priced as before but with a better package in engineering and fittings than before. Another attraction is the new range of colours to add fresh sparkle to its novelty.
Mazda Fighter is available in three distinct body styles — Single Cab, RAP Cab and Double Cab — and with a choice of two- or four-wheel drive the B-Series is powered by a 2.5-litre diesel engine. In the case of the 4×2 Single Cab it is normally aspirated, produces 84 bhp (4,000rpm) and develops peak torque of 144 lb/ft at 2,000rpm. All other models get the turbocharged version of the same powerplant which raises the figures to 109 bhp (3,500rpm) and 197 lb/ft at 2,000rpm.
Suspension is independent at the front with double wishbones and torsion bar while the rear features a solid axle and semi-elliptical leaf springs. Brakes are ventilated discs at the front and drums at the rear. ABS is fitted on all models bar the Single Cabs, but power steering is standard across the range.
All B-Series pick-ups come fitted with passenger and driver airbags as standard, and all the 4×4 models have a rear limited-slip differential to aid traction.
The Single and Double Cabs are self explanatory, but the RAP or stretch Cab is unique to the Mazda (and the Ranger, of course). It offers storage space behind the front seats as well as a couple of foldaway, forward-facing ‘jump’ seats. Not great for long distances, but sufficient for local trips to a job.
This rear compartment is accessed via rear-hinged, half-sized doors and the really clever bit is that there is no need for a B-pillar, just like on the RX8 sports car.
The exterior has a more refined and dynamic looking shape, newly designed headlights, larger windscreens, new front grille, semi-concealed wipers and moulded mud flaps. There is a greater choice of body colours to choose from, all of which have undergone Mazda’s new paint process, which ensures a superior finish and greater resistance to corrosion.
The stretch cab is aimed more at the user who needs the flexibility of an open loading area and extra passenger carrying room in the cab. Ideal for transporting crews or giving a secure covered storage area for work tools etc. The double cab offers users the option of more space for carrying passengers and still gives the flexibility of the open cargo area at the rear. This version has a second set of doors that open into the rear seats of the cab. All cabs have a bright and airy feel with excellent all-round visibility, thanks to a large windscreen. The interior has class leading room and comfort for the driver and passenger alike.
Legroom, headroom and shoulder-room have all been improved as a result of increasing the width of the cab and its overall height. To make it easier to enter and exit the vehicle, in addition to reducing driver fatigue, the seats have been positioned higher and have a higher hippoint. It also has many car-like features and equipment, including tilt adjustable steering wheel, powersteering, electric driver’s window and a low-fuel warning lamp. Other conveniences are day/night rear view mirror, intermittent wiper function, digital clock, climate control and rear window demister.
