Isuzu and Mazda Collaborate on Next-Gen Truck
Mazda Motor Corporation and Isuzu Motors Limited have reached a basic agreement on next-generation pick-up truck collaboration. Isuzu will produce the next-generation pick-up trucks for Mazda, based on Isuzu’s pick-up truck model. This will not be a totally new collaboration as Mazda and Isuzu have developed a collaborative relationship for more than 10 years, with Isuzu producing for Mazda trucks for the Japanese market. This agreement reinforces the continuous long-term relationship between Mazda and Isuzu.
Details are yet to be announced other than the eventual new-gen Mazda truck will be sold around the world, except North America.
The current Mazda truck, the BT-50, is based on the Ford Ranger. Both are also built at the same factory in Thailand.
