The Mazda B2600 series comes as a two wheel drive or a four wheel drive, with cab-chassis, ute, cab plus or crew-cab bodywork. The top models are the four wheel drive Bravo and Bravo plus crew cabs. What would be the station wagon is "badge engineered" as the Ford Raider and is not sold as a Mazda.
The standard engine is a 2.6L 4-cylinder with an unusual
three valves per cylinder: two inlet valves and one outlet valve.

but a 2.5L, 64kW diesel became available in the 4x4's in 1996.
