The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.2
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
If you don't truly need a full-size truck, the Toyota Tacoma's price and simplicity could make it a viable alternative--but it can get expensive, and its ride and gas mileage will have you reconsidering your motives. Smart cargo solutions and good off-road capability make the 2013 Suzuki Equator a solid choice for weekend warriors.
