Mazda B2600.

[B2600 crew cab, 4WD show, jpg]

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. The 2.2L diesel was only available on the 2WD cab-chassis, probably because it only puts out a rather pedestrian 44kW, but a 2.5L, 64kW diesel became available in the 4x4's in 1996.

The Mazda was outfitted with 31x10.50 BFG AT's. Doetcsh Tech shock absorbers and heavy-duty Cal-Mini torsion bars made up the suspension upgrades. A receiver hitch was added to the brush guard so that a Ramsey 6000 pound winch could be mounted either front or rear.


The B2600 series is available in Australia as a cab-chassis, pickup (ute), cab plus and dual cab, in two wheel drive and four wheel drive. The top models are the 4x4 crew cab (dual cab) Bravo and Bravo Plus. A 2184cc diesel is an option on the 4x2 cab chassis.
