Mazda Bravo

Mk3 B Series Bravo

1 Jun 1985

The next-generation B Series, again twinned with the Japanese built Ford Courier, arrived with a larger, stronger and more refined body.

It was also made available with more comfort features as well as a far-wider variety of models and styles – including rear-seat Dual Cab and Super Cab variations.

The rear-drive 2WD models were joined by the option of high and low-range four-wheel drive (4WD) in both pickup (’87) and cab-chassis (’88) guises.

Petrol engines in the 4x2 models were now 84kW/155Nm 2.0-litre (’85-’88 B2000), 68kW/171Nm 2.2 (’89-’93 B2200) and 92kW/206Nm 2.6 (’91-’99 B2600), while a 47kW/135Nm 2.2 diesel B2200 lasted until a 64kW/174Nm 2.5 diesel B2500 usurped it in April ’96.

Mazda suffixed the alphanumerical name with Bravo from 1991.

In 4x4 B Series there was the 73kW/182Nm 2.6-litre until the larger 92kW/206Nm 2.6 found in the 4x2 models replaced it in ’92.
