The Mazda B-Series trucks were simply the Ford Ranger with different badges.
Mazda sold the Ford Ranger-based B-Series pickup from 1994 to 2009.
The name of the Mazda pickup helps denote the engine under the hood.
The Mazda B4000 was powered by a 4.0-liter V6.
The 1994 Mazda B-Series pickup truck lineup also featured a 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine and a 3.0-liter V6.
A five-speed manual was the base transmission option for the B-Series truck in 2004.
Besides a different badge on the steering wheel, the B-Series interior didn't differ much from the Ford Ranger's.
When equipped with the 4.0-liter V6 and manual transmission, the 2004 Mazda B-Series truck was rated at 14 mpg in the city and 17 mpg on the highway.
When equipped with the base four-cylinder engine and manual gearbox, the 2004 B-Series truck returned 16 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway.
The B-Series truck disappeared from Mazda showrooms after the 2009 model year.
