B4000 - Best in Class (in my opinion)
By Chris M on
Vehicle2002 Mazda Truck 4dr Cab Plus B4000 4WD SB (4.0L 6cyl 5M)
ReviewB4000 has lots going for it PRIMARILY the 4L 208HP, largest in class - greatest horsepower per dollar spent (w/ Ranger). Nissan “supercharged” engine is slightly larger, 210HP, but less responsive/slower & supercharged engine lacks towing/off road power. Challengers: Ranger, S10, Tacoma, Dakota & Frontier. Tacoma/Frontier only come in 4 full or 2 door models; no have ½ doors. Drives the cost up such that one may be better off looking at bigger trucks. Fun truck, lots of functionality & power, nice high ride, good visibility, shift on fly 4wld, large/cool tires w/ strong, elevated suspension, 4 doors & features (bed-liner, cover, bed extender).
Best FeaturesThe engine/drive! Lots of truck packed into compact. 1/2 doors in the back are great for my dog (rear jump seats stink but serve a purpose). Extras (you have to buy) round out package, expect to spend ~$24K well equipped which matches up well against comparable competitors.
Worst FeaturesMazda could make more features standard, & need to continue to manufacture the storage box. Rear seats are cramped. Not sure on future of the B3000 as this trim level seems like a waste to me as it is just a weaker version of the B4000 for only about $1200 less.
