2011 Suzuki Equator Styling

7.0
On Styling

A handsome Nissan truck with some Suzuki details applied to it, the 2011 Equator arguably is a better-looking pickup than its Frontier kin.

We like the Equator's more aggressively styled snout, and some of the snappy paint colors and wheels Suzuki puts in the order list to make its truck a little more distinctive than the average badge-engineering job. It's still not a huge, radical change from the Frontier, and that's fine. The square-jawed look works well, and the truck's proportions and sharp creases telegraph its mission well.

You won't need glasses to tell the 2011 Suzuki Equator comes from the same stock as its good-looking Nissan kin.

The same holds true inside, where a rectilinear dash doesn't differ much from the Frontier. The Equator shares the same simple, inoffensive styling, though it looks tough enough to handle the daily muck that'll be thrown its way. If it were a car, we'd say it looks plasticky, but that's way more appropriate when the vehicle at hand has to carry tool belts and boxes, extra hands for hard labor, and maybe a 50-pound bag of concrete that won't fit in back.
