Suzuki Equator Earns More Fans

We love the Suzuki Equator pickup and Americans are rapidly falling for the rugged truck as well. With proportions that are right for most tasks, including towing medium-sized boats, snowmobiles or ATVs, as well as hauling things like mulch and plants from the nursery, the Equator is the right tool for the job.

Equator pickup trucks rolled faster and faster off of American Suzuki dealership lots last month, with sales increasing 35 percent over November 2010. Although it’s not Suzuki’s highest volume seller, the Equator surpassed all other Suzuki vehicles’ sales as far as positive percentage change. And the percentage change was not only for the month, but for the year: year-to-date, sales of the Equator climbed by 49 percent.

Americans have good reasons for grabbing up Equator pickup trucks.

There are two engines available in the Equator, a 2.5-liter four-cylinder that gets 152 horsepower and 171 pound-feet of torque, as well as 23 mpg on the highway, and a 4.0-liter V6 that churns out 261 horsepower and 281 pound-feet of torque. Both powerplants are a great choice, and are available with rear- or four-wheel-drive, providing off-road capability or on-road towing.

The Equator also has multiple 12-volt outlets, which makes it easy to keep your gadgets charged up, whether it’s a GPS unit or your cell phone, and with comfortable bucket seats you may find yourself taking the long way home.
