2000 Mazda B-Series Overview

For the 2000 model year, Mazda rejiggered its B-Series lineup of compact trucks a bit. The automaker added new SE and SX standard-cab models equipped with its 150-horsepower, 3.0-liter V6 engine. An automatic transmission was added to the standard equipment list for the B4000 rear-wheel-drive model, while a CD player was standard on a wider range of B-Series trucks, including all B4000 models. Air conditioning was also available on more models, including all SE and TL (Troy Lee) trim packages.

The Troy Lee B-Series versions, named for a designer of extreme sports and racing equipment, came with fog lights, flared fenders, special alloy wheels, and body graphics. And high-end B4000 models received a trailer hitch as standard equipment.

In all, nearly 15 different versions of the B-Series trucks were available for 2000, including standard and extended cab models equipped with either two-wheel and four-wheel drive, and in either two-door or four-door versions. Engine choices included a 119-horsepower 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, a 150-horsepower 3.0-liter V6, and a 160-horsepower, 4.0-liter V6. The standard transmission was a five-speed manual, while a five-speed automatic was standard on the B4000 SE with two-wheel drive. For most models, the five-speed automatic or a four-speed automatic were optional.

As you can tell from the information above, standard equipment varied widely across the line, but generally included power brakes with the anti-lock feature on the rear wheels, dual airbags, a lighted entry system, and intermittent windshield wipers. Other standard and optional equipment included air conditioning, power windows, power door locks, alloy wheels, and a CD player.

While drivers noted that light trucks from other automakers may have come with more powerful engines or better payload capabilities, it was hard to beat the value, durability, and reliability of the Mazda B-Series trucks. Mazda made many loyal fans with its trucks, who generally noted having few problems with their vehicles and appreciated the trucks' economical operation.
