The price of the Suzuki Equator is its most attractive offering. The Equator Sport V6 4WD that ranked best of all four based on many reviews cost $26, 299. Below this one is the Equator Premium at about $22,799, the Comfort Package RWD at $19,299 and $17,899 for the Equator RWD model.
There are quite a few reviews admiring the off-road performance of the Suzuki Equator.
Suzuki offers an attractive 7-year or 100,000 mile powertrain warranty. This surely is better than most makers offering of 5-year warranty.
Safety features are impressive. Although the 2011 model of the Equator hasn't gone through the government crash testing yet, reviews of the previous models did really well gaining four out of 5 on frontal crash test and 5 out of 5 for side impact crash test.
A lot of reviews available feel that although the interiors of the Equator is not as lavish as the other trucks available today, it is made having easy clean up and ease of use in mind.
Fuel Capacity if 21.1 gallons which is up to par with the leading trucks available in the market.
Many reviews on the Equator criticize the feel of the brake pedals. Some say it is mushy and does not really provide the braking power expected of most pick-up trucks.
The backseat size in not big enough for comfortably seating passengers. Reviews of the interior of the truck mostly observed this when compared with trucks from other manufacturers.
The Equator RWD model doesn't have air conditioning. It's one of the negative comments found on reviews since other most trucks in the market have this feature even in their most basic offering.
There is a limited dealer network for this truck. That makes it difficult for people who actually want it but lack dealers close to their area.
