While fuel-efficient small cars and mid-size crossovers make up the bulk of Suzuki's lineup, 2009 marks a big new addition to the family.
The all-new, mid-size, four-door Equator is the first pickup truck to grace Suzuki showrooms. It's a new direction for the Japanese company probably best known for selling marine engines, all-terrain vehicles and motorcycles (definitely motorcycles) in the United States. The fact is, Suzuki has sold cars here since 1985. One reason why Suzuki is on board with a pickup truck is that enthusiasts who already have a Suzuki motorcycle or ATV in the garage now have a way to transport their toys longer distances in true Suzuki fashion. Your boat need transporting? Not a problem, as a V-6 Equator can tow up to 6,500 pounds thanks to its fully boxed frame design.
