The 2011 Suzuki Equator comes in four trim levels: base, Premium, Sport, and RMZ-4.
Base extended-cab Equator pickups don't have much in the way of standard equipment. That list includes cloth upholstery, bucket seats in front, a flat-folding front passenger seat, 15-wheels, wind-up windows and manual locks but no audio system. It's a fleet special that you'll need to skip unless you have some very prosaic duties in mind. The Premium edition adds on standard air conditioning, power windows/locks/mirrors, keyless entry, a sliding rear window and an AM/FM/CD player, and it's probably the "base" truck for most shoppers. The V-6 Sport extended cab comes with stability and hill descent control, which isn't available on the four-cylinder models.
Crew Cab Equators are all powered by the V-6, with four-wheel drive an option. They add features like vanity mirrors, a spray-on bed liner, a rear defroster, and lumbar adjustment for the driver seat. The RMZ-4 Sport is the standout of the line, since it offers a standard bed extender and Bluetooth.Suzuki markets its own lineup of aftermarket accessories that make hauling its motorcycles, ATVs and jet skis a snap with the Equator. And in the same vein, the Equator comes with a portable navigation system option; it's more in fitting with owners' lifestyles, Suzuki says, than the fixed units in some other products.
Suzuki also has one of the best warranties, good for 100,000 miles or seven years and fully transferable, for the powertrain.
The 2010 Suzuki Equator doesn't include many luxuries or tech features, but it has a number of options geared for active truck users.
