Benefits of Driving a 2012 Suzuki Equator Truck

The Suzuki Equator is a solid compact pickup that comes at an affordable price. The base-level extended cab model begins well under $18,000, while the top-of-the-line crew cab goes just less than $30,000. 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-- an efficient 4-cylinder and a powerful V6.

What's new for 2012?

The Equator sees few changes for 2012.

Model Strengths

  • Many cab and engine configuration options
  • affordably priced compact truck
  • available 4-wheel drive

Model Review

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.

Safety Ratings help

What do the Safety Ratings mean?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs independent crash testing of new vehicles and then assigns them a score based on their performance. The overall crash test rating is based on how a vehicle performs in the following tests:

Driver Crash Grade:

Measures the chance of a serious injury to a crash test dummy that is placed in a driver's seat and driven into a fixed barrier at 35 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less chance of injury.

Passenger Crash Grade:

Similar to the driver crash grade, only now the focus is on the passenger.

Rollover Resistance:

Simulates an emergency lane change to measure the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less risk of rollover.

Side Impact Crash Test - Front:

Focuses on the front side of a vehicle. It simulates crashes that can occur in intersections by striking a 3,015-pound weight against the side of a vehicle at 38.5 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 5 percent or less chance of injury.

Side Impact Crash Test - Rear:

Similar to the front side impact test only now the focus is on the rear passenger.
