2009 Suzuki Ratings, Reviews and Awards

The showstopper of Suzuki's 2009 lineup is the Equator, which, while it's essentially a Nissan Frontier, is a truck in its own right. With a seven-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty, the Equator comes in one of two cab lengths (crew or extended) and in either a 2.5 L four-cylinder engine (with 152 hp and 171lb-ft of torque) or a 4.0 L V-6 engine (with 261 hp and 281 lb-ft). While the Forenza and Reno have disappeared from Suzuki's 2009 lineup, the Grand Vitara has returned, even fresher than before thanks to a 2.5 L four-cylinder engine or the optional 3.2 L V-6. Grand Vitara produces as much as 213 lb-ft of torque and 230 hp. Suzuki's 2009 SX4 crossover, however, remains largely the same as before, with a more civilized 2.0 L, four-cylinder engine that gets as much as 30 mpg on the highway. The XL7, in what would become its final year, had a 3.6 L, V6 engine.
