2009 Suzuki Equator Sport 4WD

Evan likes this pickup, despite not being a pickup truck guy, because of its simple honesty and integrity. At a time when it's hard to find a pickup with an interior that hasn't been pimped into a state of hedonistic overload (the way all of us sissies like them!), the Equator is simple, to the point, and with only the most cursory of amenities. There is no extra anything. The Equator doesn't look different than your average modern pickup, and it has simple and effective four-wheel drive which is easily accessed with a switch on the dash and which worked like a charm in two inches of early slushy snow.

The Equator was low-hanging fruit for Suzuki, so certainly worth building, and as Joe D. says, it's worth a test-drive.
