The much-awaited sec-gen 2018 Suzuki Equator will be soon available at authorized dealers worldwide. This newcomer is sure to delight all new potential patrons in the automotive marketplace. It is slated to become a much confident competitor than its past sibling.
Worth noting, the inbound Suzuki Equator comes in a variety of distinct sizes. We expect to see Crew Cab or Extended Cab, and this time we’ve got adequate space to accommodate up to five adult travelers. The cabin is not only wider but also a lot more comfortable, plus it doesn’t emit disrupting noise. The Suzuki also pledges a lavish entertainment and infotainment system alongside expensive and luxurious fabrics and other materials.
2018 Suzuki Equator – Fashionable and Stylish
As far as the sheet metal goes, the new 2018 Suzuki Equator borrows a host of design cues from the 2015 Nissan Frontier. The two vehicles share a common platform and highlight pretty much the same body shape. However, very slight variations are evident upon a closer look at Equator’s new front façade.
As earlier mentioned, the next Suzuki Equator comes in two setups that comprise Extended Cab and Crew Cab configuration. The Crew Cab structure hosts up to five passengers in the cabin. Since Suzuki attempts at fixing issues that showed up on the previous version, we expect a better-insulated cabin with significantly reduced noise emissions. The interior receives improved materials along with the latest tech amenities.
The exterior of the revamped Suzuki Equator becomes a lot more fashionable and stylish. A recent report claims the 2018 Suzuki Equator is longer than the outgoing model. The new model is likely to feature an extended wheelbase in addition to more room inside. Its front grille gets a complete facelift, while the front bumper becomes even more aggressive in this Suzuki Equator version. The front and rear lights will receive LED bulbs that guarantee the best visibility.
The upcoming Suzuki Equator’s cabin will be comfortable and modern. This truck is expected to offer phenomenal comfort, thanks to the inclusion of the finest leather seats. Also, the vehicle’s steering wheel comes wrapped in all-leather material and comprises a lot of buttons for better control of functions. That way, the driver gets a much better focus on driving. In the center of the control panel is a touchscreen with an advanced infotainment system that controls most of the functions in this new truck.
2018 Suzuki Equator – Power Expectations
The incoming 2018 Suzuki Equator avails two engine options, with the first one being a 2.4-liter four-cylinder motor. This engine spews at least 158 horsepower and 171 pound-feet of torque. Additionally, we will have either a five-speed automatic or five-speed manual gearbox hooked to this engine.
For those who are inclined towards a bigger engine, the 2018 Suzuki Equator is likely to supply a 4.0-liter motor beneath its hood. This powertrain yields up to 261 horsepower and 281 pound-feet of torque.
MSRP and Date of Arrival
Apparently, it’s still early to suggest the pricing notes and release date for the 2018 Suzuki Equator model. But, rumor has it that the starting cost kicks off at $20,000. As far as the release date is concerned, we expect the new Equator to hit the dealerships early next year.
