In addition to knowing the importance of letting faster traffic pass and how to get the most out of a barbeque, Texans also know a little something about pickup trucks
. So it's no surprise that Suzuki
chose to introduce their new Equator pickup truck
deep in the heart of Texas. Thanks to a mix of urban, country and off-road settings, San Antonio offered plenty of excellent opportunities to put the Equator through its paces. Even better is the fact that San Antonio is located some 1300 miles from kbb's home office in Irvine, California giving us the chance to drive our new long-term Suzuki Equator pickup truck home through the vast -- and often peculiar -- American Southwest. In this video Kelley Blue Book's Micah Muzio braves endless wasteland and questionable regional cuisine to ferry our 2009 four-wheel-drive V6 Suzuki Equator from Texas to its temporary new home in California.
