A mid-sized pickup truck based on the Nissan Frontier
Autoblog



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.

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.

 

Conclusion

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

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
