2010 Suzuki Equator RMZ4 ShortBed CrewCab Truck

2010 Suzuki Equator Review

(3 Stars)  All the truck most will need

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
Suzuki won't be the first auto maker named when you ask people to name a pickup truck. It is a restyled Nissan Frontier, the company's midsized truck. The Suzuki features great styling and a huge list of standard features. The Equator is a comfortable vehicle, even if it lacks some of the more common luxury appointments. For the drive, the Equator will not disappoint, with responsive brakes, responsive steering, and suspension that is up to the task for on road or off. With the V-6 engine, this midsize truck is capable of carrying over 1000lbs and a towing capacity over 6000lbs. Suzuki offers a sport package that covers the bottom of the trucks vitals with skid plates, offers up a dana 44 locking rear axle, and dual range 4 wheel drive.

Engines for the Equator are either an economical 2.5 liter four cylinder worth 152 HP or a less economical but more capable 4.0 liter V6 making 261 HP. Both route their power through a 5 speed automatic transmission. Some may dislike the idea that there is no standard cab option but most people will find the equator to be a great all around midsized truck.
