2007 Mazda B4000 Overview

By Cars.com Editors
Vehicle Overview
Mazda's small pickup is available in B2300, B3000 and B4000 versions. A 2.3-liter four-cylinder powers the B2300 series, while B3000 and B4000 versions are equipped with 3.0- and 4.0-liter V-6s, respectively. All three Mazda models are closely related to equivalent Ford Rangers. Four-wheel-drive pickups feature front hubs that can lock automatically.

For 2007, the only changes are the addition of two new colors — Pueblo Gold and Vista Blue — and a tire pressure monitoring system.

Mazda's B2300 pickup comes in only one form: a regular-cab pickup with rear-wheel drive. An SE-5 Package that includes alloy wheels, a CD player, air conditioning and carpeted floormats is available for the B2300. A cargo-bed extender is optional.

Ford Motor Co., which holds a controlling interest in Mazda, builds the B-Series compact pickups. For years, the two companies have shared other products and components.

Pueblo Gold and Vista Blue are new paint colors for 2007.


Interior
Mazda's B2300 model has a roomy cab with a standard three-place front bench seat. Occupants get a fold-down armrest, and storage pockets are installed on the seatbacks. Air conditioning is optional in the B2300.

Under the Hood
The engines in all three versions of the B-Series are the same as those used in Ford Rangers. A 143-horsepower, 2.3-liter four-cylinder in the B2300 teams with either a standard five-speed manual transmission or an optional five-speed automatic.

Safety
Antilock brakes are standard, and a key-operated switch can deactivate the passenger-side airbag. Side-impact airbags are not available. A tire pressure monitoring system is standard for 2007.

B3000
A 148-hp, 3.0-liter V-6 in the B3000 teams with either a five-speed manual transmission or an optional five-speed automatic. The B3000 comes in three forms: regular-cab Dual Sport, Cab Plus 4-door and Dual Sport Cab Plus 4-door. Cab Plus models have rear-hinged back doors.

Dual Sport models impart the look of a four-wheel-drive truck and feature a monochrome exterior, fender flares and a raised suspension like the B-Series 4x4s. They contain equipment from Mazda's Convenience and Power packages, including cruise control, a leather-wrapped tilt steering wheel and a bedliner. Back to top

Both B4000 models have four-wheel drive that includes low-range gearing. Raised suspensions use torsion-bar front springs.

Each Cab Plus 4-door edition features rear-hinged back doors that can be opened only after the front doors are open. Cab Plus 4-door models are 202.9 inches long overall and have a 125.9-inch wheelbase. The base model rides on 15-inch wheels, and the SE gets 16-inch wheels. Back to top

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
