Overview

What Changed for 2009:

  • B4000 Cab Plus SE discontinued in North America
Overview
While other compact pickup trucks have been modernized and grown much larger in recent years, the Mazda B-Series pickup-like its almost identical cousin, the Ford Ranger-carries on with no change except the discontinuation of the B4000 Cab Plus SE model. The Mazda B-Series is available in two body styles: 2-door regular cab and 4-door Cab Plus. The regular cab body style is available only with 4-cylinder power and rear-wheel drive (RWD). It has a front bench seat for 3-passenger capacity. Cab Plus extended cab models are offered only with a V-6 engine and 4-wheel drive (4WD). Cab Plus has rear-hinged rear access doors and seating for up to 5 with two rear fold-down jump seats.

Model Lineup
The 2009 Mazda B-Series is available in B2300 Regular Cab and B4000 Cab Plus models equipped with simplistic base model trim and few options. The B2300 has a 4-cylinder engine while the B4000 has a V-6 engine. Standard equipment on the B2300 includes cloth upholstery, 60/40-split front bench seat, 2-speaker AM/FM stereo, vinyl floor covering, manual windows and door locks, 4-wire trailer harness, and P225/70R15 tires on steel wheels. The B4000 adds air conditioning, rear jump seats, carpeting, floor mats, theft-deterrent system, raised 4WD suspension, and P235/75R15 tires. Options include an auto-dimming rearview mirror, bed extender, and a tonneau cover for the pickup bed.

Powertrain
The 2009 Mazda B-Series offers two engines. The base 2.3-liter 4-cylinder engine in the B2300 model is a dual-overhead-cam design that produces 143 hp at 5250 rpm and 154 lb.-ft. of torque at 3750 rpm. B4000 models have a 4.0-liter, single-overhead-cam V-6 engine that makes 207 hp at 5250 rpm and 238 lb.-ft. of torque at 3000 rpm. Both engines come standard with a 5-speed manual transmission, and a 5-speed automatic is optional. The B4000 has a dashboard-activated part-time 4WD system with automatic-locking front hubs. It should not be left engaged on dry pavement, and includes low-range gearing. EPA fuel-economy ratings are 21 mpg city/26 mpg highway for the B2300 with a manual transmission and 19 mpg city/24 mpg highway for a B2300 with the automatic transmission. The B4000 gets 15 mpg city/19 mpg highway with a manual transmission and 14 mpg city/17 mpg highway with the automatic transmission. Properly equipped, a 4-cylinder Mazda B-Series pickup can tow up to 2260 pounds, while the Cab Plus model can tow up to 5600 pounds. Both have a maximum payload of 1260 pounds.

Safety
The 2009 Mazda B-Series includes dual front air bags, tire-pressure monitor and anti-lock brakes (ABS) as standard. There are no safety options. The Mazda B-Series has earned a 5-star rating for the driver and a 4-star rating for the front passenger in front-impact tests conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The regular cab body style has also received a 5-star rating for the driver in side-impact tests, while the Cab Plus extended cab received 4 stars. In rollover-resistance tests, the B-Series received a 3-star rating. In tests conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the B-Series received an "Acceptable" rating for frontal offset crashes and a "Poor" rating for rear crash protection.

Technology
The 2009 Mazda B-Series has 4-wheel ABS with front disc and rear drum brakes. ABS pulses the brakes to help decrease stopping distances, minimize the chance of skids, and allow drivers to steer when braking hard, the automaker explains.
