2009 Mazda B-4000 Review

A truck that delivers on cargo hauling, but not on looks.

Reviewed by Automotive on


The 2009 Mazda B-4000 is a vehicle that is impressive to look at, with its 15-inch silver steel wheels and 7.9-inch ground clearance. It also delivers a powerful, four-liter, V-6 engine. It is a machine made for the hard working cargo and haul world, tempered by the attractive front foglights, which add to the practical lines of this pickup truck.

The Range

Body Styles: Pickup truck
Engines: four-liter V-6
Transmissions: Five-speed manual
Models: B-4000 Cab Plus Four

What's New

The 2009 Mazda B-4000 is a much simpler edition of its predecessors. For starters, the Cab Plus 4x4 SE trim model is no longer available, and the AM/FM radio comes with a much smaller frequency range.


The 2009 Mazda B-4000 is impressive in stature, with a 7.9-inch ground clearance, sitting on a 125.9-inch wheelbase. It comes with a 202.9-inch body length, a 70.3-inch width, and a 67.5-inch height, with a gross weight of 5120 pounds. This is a vehicle that stands tall, even in its own class.

The Mazda B-4000 has a maximum towing capacity of 5600 pounds, with a cargo bed depth of 16.5 inches, a length of 71.8 inches, and a floor width of 52 inches. With that kind of cargo bed, owning this vehicle guarantees a machine that is useful when hauling.


The 2009 Mazda B-4000 seats five. The front seat has a standard glove box that lights up. The truck boasts other comfort fittings, such as air-conditioning, front and rear passenger cup holders, and rear-seat storage pockets.

The 2009 Mazda B-4000 comes with bright halogen headlamps and manual door locks and windows. Standard on the 2009 Mazda B-4000 is a low tire pressure warning gauge that ensures the driver does not travel on a flat.

This truck has little in way of entertainment trimmings and the AM/FM radio comes with a narrower frequency range, which gives it fewer station options.

Performance & Handling

The 2009 Mazda B-4000 is a two-door pickup truck that almost seems to be a four-door vehicle because its two doors have an extra opening. However, the truck’s greatest appeal is its engine. It comes with a four-liter, V-6, 207 horsepower engine, with an aluminum and iron block cylinder head. The engine delivers 238 lb-ft torque. The B-4000 also comes with a four-wheel drive, a five-speed transmission with overdrive, an optional automatic transmission engine, and a dual overhead cam shaft (DOHC).


The safety provisions of the 2009 Mazda B-4000 include front driver and passenger airbags with occupant sensing deactivation technology to protect children and small-bodied adults from possible injuries. The truck also comes with side airbags as standard and seatbelts that adjust to hold the seat occupant in place in the event of an impact.

There is also a security ignition disabling mechanism on the 2009 Mazda B-4000, which ensures that the vehicle only starts when the original key from the manufacturer is used. Additionally, anti-lock brakes (ABS) are standard.
