Vehicle Overview
What once was an energetic partnership between Mazda and Ford has slowly decomposed into an automotive history sidebar. The B-Series is now just a two-vehicle lineup based on the Ford Ranger, which is the oldest compact-truck platform on the market.

Production of the Ranger and B-Series was scheduled to end by 2010, but high gas prices rekindled interest in a lightweight truck with a gas-sipping four-cylinder engine. Mazda offers a B2300 regular cab 4x2 and a B4000 Cab Plus 4x4. Both come with 6-foot-long cargo beds. There are no trim levels and few options for either truck.

The best selling points for the B-Series are the low prices, petite size and fuel economy. The B2300 gets an EPA-estimated 21/26 mpg city/ highway, which is the best among all pickup trucks.


New for 2009
Most of the changes for 2009 involve deletions. The high-end Cab Plus 4x4 SE model is discontinued. Mazda also dropped four exterior colors, and the AM/FM radio has fewer station presets. A Class III trailer hitch is now standard.

Exterior
While the silhouette is identical, the B-Series is easily distinguished from the Ranger by the Mazda grille emblem. The truck has a sturdy stance and simple character lines. Those who want to spend the money can find plenty of dress-up items to personalize the appearance.
  • Chromed bumper, "bright" grille optional on B2300
  • 15-inch wheels for both trucks
  • Available factory bedliner
  • Mudguards standard on B4000
  • Tow hitch includes trailer wiring


Interior
It's a no-frills truck designed for working-class heroes; no power windows or door locks. Air conditioning is standard on the B4000 but optional on the B2300. There's a cloth-trimmed front bench seat with vinyl flooring in the B2300 and carpet in the B4000. Interior storage is adequate.
  • Available AM/FM/CD audio in regular cab
  • Available tilt steering in regular cab


Under the Hood
  • 143-horsepower, 2.3-liter inline-four-cylinder with an aluminum block and cylinder head, dual overhead camshaft, four valves per cylinder and 154 pounds-feet of torque
  • 207-hp, 4.0-liter V-6 with an iron block and aluminum cylinder head, single overhead camshaft, two valves per cylinder and 238 pounds-feet of torque
  • Five-speed manual transmission standard
  • Five-speed automatic transmission available


Safety
The B-Series offers the basics and little more. There are dual front airbags, three-point seat belts in the outboard positions and side-impact door beams.
Other safety features include:
  • Front seat belt pretensioners with force limiters
  • Passenger-side airbag deactivation switch
  • Roadside assistance standard
