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.
