Pros

Model Highlights

The base-level Equator extended cab comes with a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine, rear-wheel drive, and a 5-speed manual transmission. Everything about those specs can be upgraded, depending on trim level: a 4.0L V6 is available, as is a 4-wheel drivetrain and a 5-speed automatic transmission with overdrive. The crew cab has only the V6 engine and the automatic transmission, though there is a choice between 2- and 4-wheel drive.

Standard safety features are the same across the board, and include dual-stage front airbags, roof-mounted curtain and rollover airbags and front seat-mounted side-impact airbags. The safety system has anti-lock brakes, electronic brake force distribution and tire pressure monitoring. The Equator also comes standard with a 7-year, 100,000-mile powertrain warranty with roadside assistance and a courtesy vehicle program.

Like a lot of full-sized pickup trucks, there are a multitude of possible configurations of the Equator, depending on which engine, bed, cab and drivetrain is desired. And along with those configurations comes a list of standard and optional equipment. Some things are common to all Equators, such as fabric seats, rear seats that flip up, a fold-flat passenger seat, two power outlets and storage under the rear seats.

All but the most basic models come with air conditioning, an AM/FM/CD audio system, power windows and doors, remote keyless entry and cruise control. The crew cab models add a rear heater duct, tilt steering wheel and a 6-speaker audio system. The high-end RMZ crew cab model features upgraded, easy-clean fabric seat material and height adjustment for the driver's seat. They also include a 9-speaker stereo, Bluetooth connectivity and audio controls on the steering wheel. All crew cab models can add the optional navigation system.


Model News

The Equator sees few changes for 2011. Obtaining a tilt wheel now requires the "Premium" trim. The V6 engine will not be available with the rear-wheel drive extended cab. Among RMZ-4 models, the Sport trim is no longer available.


Value Writeup

The Suzuki Equator is a solid compact pickup that comes at an affordable price. The base-level extended cab model begins well under $20,000, while the top-of-the-line crew cab goes just about $29,000. There's a lot of variation in between, with a configuration for almost every budget and need, including 4-wheel drive, two bed sizes and two engine choices-- efficient 4-cylinder or powerful V6.

Summary
SUZUKI IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2011-2012 EQUATOR PICKUP TRUCKS MANUFACTURED FROM JUNE 16, 2011, THROUGH AUGUST 31, 2011. SOME OF THE BOLTS THAT CONNECT THE ENGINE OIL COOLER AND THE ENGINE OIL FILTER TO THE ENGINE IN THESE VEHICLES MAY HAVE BEEN MANUFACTURED TO BELOW SPECIFICATION STRENGTH. AS A RESULT, THE BOLT MAY BREAK AT THE OIL FILTER ATTACHMENT POINT AND CAN CAUSE AN ENGINE OIL LEAK.

Consequence
IF THERE IS AN ENGINE OIL LEAK, THE ENGINE OIL PRESSURE WOULD DROP AND THE ENGINE COULD SEIZE, INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.

SUZUKI WILL NOTIFY OWNERS AND DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE CONNECTOR BOLTS FREE OF CHARGE. THE SAFETY RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON OR ABOUT JANUARY 19, 2012. OWNERS MAY CONTACT SUZUKI AT 1-714-996-7040.

SUZUKI'S SAFETY RECALL NUMBER IS NT. OWNERS MAY ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION'S VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), OR GO TO HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV .

Rollover Note
Dynamic (moving) test results (Tip or No Tip) and measured rollover-related properties determine vehicle's risk of rollover in single vehicle crash and its rollover rating. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is.
