The Suzuki Equator was a mid-size pickup truck based on the Nissan Frontier and assembled by Nissan. It was first sold in the US for the 2009 model year with prices starting at $17,220, and made its debut at the 2008 Chicago Auto Show.

The Equator was offered as either a four-seat Extended Cab or a five-seat Crew Cab. In the Canadian market, the Equator is only offered in the Crew Cab configuration, in a single trim level.

Power on base Extended Cab models comes from a 4-cylinder engine. A V6 is optional on Extended Cab models and standard with the Crew Cab. Both engines are supplied by Nissan.

The base 2.5 L Inline-4 produces 152 hp (113 kW) at 5,200 rpm and 171 lb⋅ft (232 N-m) at 4,400 rpm, and is a rear-wheel-drive. It comes with either a five-speed manual transmission or a five-speed automatic.

The 4.0 L V6 engine develops 261 hp (195 kW) at 5,600 rpm and 281 lb⋅ft (381 N-m) at 4,000 rpm. It comes standard with a five-speed automatic and is available with four-wheel-drive.

The Equator won Peterson's 4Wheel & Off-Road'S 2009 4x4 of the Year, beating out the Dodge Ram 1500, Ford F150, Hummer H3, Kia Borrego, and Toyota Sequoia.

Sales of the Suzuki Equator since 2009 have been 5,808 overall, and it rarely sold over 200 units per month.

The Suzuki Equator was discontinued in 2010 for the Canadian market and 2012 for the United States market.
