Mazda B-Series 2009
This compact pickup is a Ford Ranger with a Mazda nameplate and minor exterior differences. The ride is stiff and choppy, but the steering is relatively responsive. The extended cab with its four doors is a worthwhile option for the extra luggage space it brings, but not even children will be happy for long in the small jump seats. The 3.0-liter V6 is pleasant enough and adequately powerful. An overhead-cam 4.0-liter V6 and a 2.3-liter four-cylinder are also available. Handling is relatively good. The B Series was discontinued after 2009.
