Trio of customized Suzuki Equator pickups headed to Chicago Auto Show

2009 Suzuki Equator Pickup
At next month’s 2009 Chicago Auto Show Suzuki will unveil a trio of customized Equator pickup trucks co-developed with three different off-road and lifestyle magazines. The first vehicle from the lineup has already been revealed in the form of the Truckin' Equator, which has been fitted with a modified four-cylinder powertrain and a Suzuki GSX-R motorbike in its tray.

Another version was developed together with 4-Wheel & Off-Road magazine and rounding out the trio is an Off-road magazine designed model. All three will make their debut in Chicago on February 11.

Incidentally, the current Equator pickup first made its debut at last year’s Chicago event. Back then, Suzuki also unveiled three separate representations of the truck, including the 'RMZ-4' for off-road enthusiasts, 'Quad' for outdoor adventurers and 'Quay' for boating and watersport fans.

The Equator is actually based on the Nissan Frontier and is built at a Nissan factory in Smyrna, Tennessee. It is available in either Extended Cab or Crew Cab bodystyles and is powered by a base 152hp 2.5L four-cylinder engine or a 261hp 4.0L V6.
